Sometimes I find myself cooking for just one and it's incredibly frustrating to have to defrost an entire pound of meat for just one portion; that's why I find freezing individual portions to be such a genius idea. I've done this with chicken breasts before and feel so relieved when I find a perfectly portioned frozen piece of meat that can easily be defrosted after a long day of work — but honestly, never even considered it in terms of ground meat.
Flatten out the ground meat in the ziplock bag as thin as possible and be sure to get rid of any air bubbles. Next, use a chopstick (or skewer) to press individual portions into the meat. This way, you can easily break off single portions instead of having to defrost the entire package. Plus, since the meat is spread so thin, it'll defrost in half the time!
