It can be hard to make a fresh cooked meal for every single breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Whether you’re busy because of a new baby, a long day running errands, or other life events, it can be hard to find the time to cook. One alternative is eating out but that’s a budget buster! Or you could eat frozen convenience food from the grocery store, but too much of that isn’t healthy. If you want to save your budget and don’t want to resort to commercial freezer food, then you should consider homemade freezer cooking! Here are 15 delicious and time-saving Freezer Meal Recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner to get you started!

Freezer cooking is when you do the majority of the prep work ahead of time, freeze the meal, and then put it in the oven, crock-pot, grill, or stove top when you need it. It’s an easy and quick way to have a home cooked meal on a busy day, and just requires a couple of hours work ahead of time. If you’re new to freezer cooking I would ease myself in with just making one or two recipes to begin.

You can make freezer meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And if you plan your freezer meal prep session well, you can wind up saving prep time overall! You do this by (1) preparing meals in bulk, and (2) preparing multiple ingredients at once (like cutting up enough onion at once for 5 different recipes). And since most freezer meals can stay in the freezer for months, if you do a good job you can wind up just having a freezer meal prep day once every month!
