I will be posting 10 Days of Freezer Meal Recipes and today is Day 6! See more Freezer Recipes HERE and be sure to read my Easy Tips to Freezer Meal Cooking/Planning post here to get started!

With Spring here and Summer gardening already on the horizon I can’t help but look forward to the bounty of bell peppers we will grow and an abundance of these easy and tasty Stuffed Bell Peppers cropping up on our dinner plates.  This came to be in what I like to refer to a “clean out the fridge night” where I had just a little pasta sauce, rice and ground meat to do something with and an excess of fresh bell peppers from our garden.  What came about has since been fine tuned into what our family loves and asks for routinely.  Make ahead and freeze for simple freezer to oven meals that are filling and help use up that excess of fresh produce.

If making large batches to freeze, allow to cool completely and warp each pepper in plastic wrap then aluminum foil to keep fresh for up to 4 months in freezer.  Add an extra 25-30 minutes to cook time if pulling from freezer to oven for perfectly cooked stuffed peppers any week night.

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Ingredients:

  • 6 Large Green Bell Peppers
  • 1 Pound Ground Turkey or Ground Beef
  • 2 Cups Cooked White or Brown Rice
  • 1 Can Diced Stewed Tomatoes
  • 1 Cup Tomato Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Italian Seasoning Blend
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar

Directions:

  1. Slice tops off bell peppers and clean inside removing membranes and seeds but leaving pepper intact.  Set aside.
  2. In large stockpot, cook ground beef until no longer pink and heated through.
  3. Add in rice, stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and Italian Seasoning blend.
  4. Mix together and heat on high for 4-5 minutes. 240.jpg40 Stuffed Bell Peppers (Freezer Cooking Meal)
  5. Spray large casserole dish with non stick spray and preheat oven to 350 degrees
  6. Place bell peppers in casserole dish and scoop rice/meat mixture into each pepper until full. 337.jpg37 Stuffed Bell Peppers (Freezer Cooking Meal)
  7. Sprinkle tops with cheese
  8. May use toothpicks inserted in sides as “legs” to help stabilize bell peppers as needed.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes

These bell peppers will soften as they bake and the wonderful filling will seep flavors into the peppers giving them a nice sweet taste that even the kids will enjoy.  Stuffed Bell Peppers are a classic paupers meal that is hearty and inexpensive to make but beautiful enough to present to guests.

Chocolate Creme Pie

creme.png Chocolate Creme Pie

Ingredients:

Chocolate Oreo Cookie Crumb Crust:

  • 16 Oreo cookies, about 2-1/2 cups
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Chocolate truffle filling: 

  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1¼ cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 egg yolks

Chocolate mousse topping:

  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Directions:

I suggest starting with the mousse topping, as it takes the longest to prepare.

For the crust:

Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor or blender, process cookies until finely ground. Transfer crumbs to a bowl, add butter and use fingers to combine until butter is evenly distributed.

Pour crumbs into 9-inch pie plate. Press crumbs evenly onto bottom and up the sides of pie plate until firmly in place. Refrigerate crust 20 minutes to firm crumbs, then bake until set, about 10 minutes. Let crust cool while preparing filling.

For the filling:

In a small pot, bring cream and milk just to a boil. Put chocolate in a heatproof bowl and pour in cream mixture; whisk until well blended. Add butter, salt, and yolks and whisk until well combined. Pour into pie shell and bake until just slightly wiggly in the center, about 20 minutes. Let cool for about 2 hours.

For chocolate mousse topping:

In a small pot, bring the cream just to a boil. Put chocolate and salt in a large, heatproof bowl and pour in cream; whisk until combined. Cool to room temperature, then cover and chill 8 hours, or overnight.

To finish the mousse, beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Spoon mousse onto pie and spread evenly.  When chilled, sprinkle with chocolate chips and drizzle with Hershey’s syrup if desired.

  1. In large skillet heat olive oil, onions and bell peppers cooking until they begin to get tender (4-5 minutes).
  2. Mix in sausage cooking for an additional 6-7 minutes or until cooked through and no longer pink.
  3. If using whole eggs, in a large bowl beat lightly with a fork until all yolks are broken mixing in cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and salt.
  4. Pour eggs over sausage and veggie mixture and cook for 5-7 minutes or until eggs are cooked through.
  5. Mix in ½ of cheese and stir together until cheese is mixed well and melting. 236.jpg36 Easy Sausage Breakfast Burritos (Freezer Cooking Recipe)

Not only are they healthier than fast food choices, but they are chock full of flavor and much less expensive. If wrapped and stored properly these are great for up to 3 months in the freezer. Make large batches for easy on the go breakfasts for your entire family. To heat, remove aluminum foil leaving wrapped in plastic wrap. Place on microwave safe plate and heat for 1 minute on medium. Remove plastic wrap and heat 1 minute on high. Serve with salsa.

When I think of freezer meals I automatically go back to all the great casseroles my mom made when I was a kid and Tater Tot Casserole was one of the most commonly made meals in our home.  This version of the classic dish is a simple and satisfying meal the entire family will love.  Make ahead and freeze for easy freezer to oven meals or serve same day for a hearty meal your kids will be begging you to make more often.  I love this dish because it takes advantage of a lot of items I already pick up for cheap or free using coupons.

This yummy Tater Tot Casserole is one of our favorite freezer meals because it is so easy to mix up a double or triple batch of the meat mixture and layer with tater tots in disposable aluminum pans for freezing and simple reheating.  If you freeze this meal for future use, make sure to label appropriately.  If stored in an aluminum pan cover with plastic wrap and aluminum foil to seal properly and label well.  This meal lasts for up to 4 months in the freezer.  To heat, simply remove plastic wrap/foil/lid and place in oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

These super simple Carrot Cake cookies are seriously, super easy to make and taste delicious! I love giving these as little Easter gifts and they are perfect for kid’s bake sales. This just uses a box of Betty Crocker carrot cake mix and these cookies turn out perfectly. I like to add raisins to change the flavor a little bit but you can leave them out if you’re not a fan. Enjoy! P.S. – These are also a great Breakfast treat!

We love Mexican inspired dishes and these Green Chili Lime Chicken Enchiladas are one of our favorite meals with it’s mild yet flavorful blend of  spices and creamy sauce.  This one is a favorite for the kids and adults alike since it is cheesy, creamy and simple to assemble.  I prefer to make the chicken mixture ahead in bulk and assemble my enchiladas right before meal time if I am making this into a freezer meal, but others may prefer the easy freezer to oven method of making the enchiladas ahead where you can simply pop directly from your freezer right into your oven.

I will be posting 10 Days of Freezer Meal Recipes and today is Day 2! See moreFreezer Recipes HERE and be sure to read my Easy Tips to Freezer Meal Cooking/Planning post here to get started.

Green Lime Chili Chicken Enchiladas

Ingredients:

  • 1 Pound Shredded Chicken Breasts
  • 12 Medium Flour Tortillas
  • 16 oz. Sour Cream
  • 3 Teaspoons Minced Garlic
  • 6 Green Onions Chopped
  • ½ Cup Chopped Fresh Cilantro
  • 1 Can Diced Green Chilis
  • Juice & Zest of 1 Lime
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin
  • 2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese (you can also add mozzarella)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Spray casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  3. Mix together chicken, green chilis, 1 cup cheese, sour cream, garlic, onions, cilantro, lime and cumin.
  4. Taste mixture and add salt & pepper as desired (I typically add 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of each but some prefer a bit less or more) 238.jpg38 Green Chili Lime Chicken Enchiladas (Freezer Cooking Meal)
  5. Scoop approximately 2 tablespoons of chicken mixture into center of each tortilla.
  6. Top with sprinkle of shredded cheese (make sure to reserve ½ cup for top of enchiladas)
  7. Roll tortilla and place seam side down in casserole dish
  8. Sprinkle tops with remaining shredded cheese 14.jpg4 Green Chili Lime Chicken Enchiladas (Freezer Cooking Meal)
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes

These Green Chili Lime Chicken Enchiladas are one of our favorite easy meals to throw together.  If you prefer a no fuss easy weeknight meal, mix together this chicken filling and assemble enchiladas in a disposable aluminum pan and freeze for up to 4 months.  Label appropriately and pop straight from freezer to oven to cook at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour or until cooked through and cheese melted.  So simple, so tasty and sophisticated enough to serve to guests at your next dinner party.
