Here is one of our family favorites! It is so easy to prep, make, and freeze, making this one of my favorite freezer meals. The best part is that my chicks will eat all their veggies with no whining! (Please tell me I’m not alone in the “eat your veggies” battle!)
Here’s the recipe::
2 cans of Cream of Potato Soup
1 can of mixed veggies, drained
2 cups cooked, diced chicken
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp Thyme
1/2 tsp Pepper
2 nine inch pie crusts
1 egg beaten
Combine ingredients and spoon into prepared pie crust. Cover with top crust and crimp edges to seal. Slit the top and brush with egg.
Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Let cool before serving.
Make it a freezer meal:
You can do this a couple ways.
The first way is to get a bunch of aluminum pie pans (9in or cute single servings) and prep a bunch of pies.
The second way, which is my preferred method, is to buy a bunch of refrigerated crusts and store them in the freezer. Then mix up several recipes of the filling and divide into the appropriate number of freezer baggies or containers. When you are ready to make your pie, simply thaw your filling and prep pie as usual.
So simple right! This is a great meal for the busy school year that is around the corner!
Happy first Saturday of the New Year! This morning I whipped up a quick batch of the healthy, delicious, clean muffins! This recipe makes about 20 muffins and freeze beautifully!
Here’s what you will need:
2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats or 3 cups quick oats
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 Tbls flaxseed
1 tsp vanilla
2 ripe bananas
Optional add-ins: chocolate chips (my favorite!), nuts, dried fruit, etc. the possibilities are endless!
What to do:
Place oats in the food processor and run for 10 seconds. If you food processor is large enough you can toss the rest of the ingredients (except add-ins) in and blend. If not, toss all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with mixer. Stir in add-in and spoon into a muffin pan. Bake at 2
350 until the edges are brown. In my oven, it’s about 10-15 minutes.
Store them in the fridge and reheat when ready to eat, or toss in a freezer bag and freeze.
These have been my ‘go to’ breakfast for all my out of town doctor appointments. Delish!
Freezer cooking for some can be VERY overwhelming when you start planning the menu, making the monstrous list of ingredients and then there’s the shopping and cooking. For some, taking a day to do that is out of the question. … Continue reading →
