I've been doing some hands on research for my little freezer class tomorrow night, so I've made a few new recipes in the last couple of days. Last night we had Tomato Basil Hamburgers. So good. And I made enough patties to freeze for two more meals. Very easy.

Before we went to bed last night, I got out the Rhodes frozen bread dough for tonight's dinner to thaw.

I woke this morning to find a monster. If I had slept in any longer, I think the dough mass would have crawled its way upstairs and attacked.

It all worked out in the end---I made three Ham and Cheese Braids to freeze and one to eat. Photo Courtesy of Ducks in a Row

I used the linked recipe, but if I had to do it again, I think I might try the Pioneer Woman recipe (has a few more ingredients that might add a little more kick) or use grilled chicken in lieu of ham. I think I would also use homemade dough instead of the frozen stuff. It was more expensive and (in my opinion) a little difficult to work with.

Happy freezing!

This is what we are actually having for dinner tomorrow I just have to put it in my fridge to thaw overnight. I love freezer meals.

That is a hoot and those hamburgers sound tasty!

This is a good recipe. I make it with homemade bread dough and it's delish! Here's a blog of one of the freezer meal groups I've joined in the neighboring ward that's has been going for a while. It has lots of recipes, pics, and reviews you might like:

Our ward started a freezer meal group and 12 people signed up. We each make 12 of the same recipe of our choosing, get together 1x a month and swap in someone's garage. I thought they'd get overwelmed at having to make 12, but everyone is still in!

Happy freezer meal making
