Last month The Kitchn was all about cleaning, stocking, and organizing the freezer. We had our very first Freezer Cure to fill up your weekends; Jessica Fisher offered a wealth of freezer tips; and Faith shared her freezer meal party where she and her family made 50 meals for less than $300.

Now that you have the resources and ideas, all you need to do is decide on some delicious recipes to stash in your freezer for busy mornings or evenings. From grown-up prosciutto and cheddar hot pockets, to veggie burgers, to a chicken pasta bake, there’s no holding back your freezer’s potential.

With a little planning, the right tools, and some up-front work, you freezer will be stocked in no time. It’s a great way to stick to a budget and save time. On those days when you don’t have time to cook (or just don’t feel like it), but don’t want to go out to eat or order in, eating something from the freezer is a welcome comfort. Think of stocking your freezer as showing yourself a little future love.

Each of these recipes have freezer-friendly instructions. Some call for leaving out certain ingredients (like dairy) until you plan on eating the meal, and others call for portioning out the meal before freezing. Don’t worry – you got this.
