My Lunchbox Freezer Cooking Plan

School is back in session and many of you are packing lunches to send with your children. Or, you might be packing a lunch for your spouse or yourself to take to work.

Packing your own lunch is a great way to save money, but trying to put together lunches at the last minute can be time-consuming. And that’s where freezer cooking comes in!

For the next two weeks, we’ll be doing a Lunchbox Freezer Cooking series here on MoneySavingMom.com. I’ll be making a different freezer-friendly Lunchbox item each day — and I’ll be blogging about it, with pictures, and encouraging you to join in and make what I make or another recipe that would work for brown-bagging it.

I’m not 100% sure of all of the recipes I’m making, but here’s what I think I’m going to make (most of these are new to me, so I can’t vouch for them!):

Individual Mac & Cheese [1]
Peanut Butter & Jelly Sushi Rolls [2]
Pizza Lunchables [3]
Broccoli Chicken & Rice Cups [4]
Corn Dog Muffins [5]
Homemade Pizza Rolls [6]
Bean & Cheese Burritos [7] (here’s another option for Burritos [8], if you want something with a little more variety in it)
Mighty Tasty Mini Lasagnas [9]
Chocolate Chips Granola Bites [10]
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins [11]

Other Freezer-Friendly Lunchbox Ideas:

Barbecued Meatballs [12]
Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches [13]
Brown Bag Burritos [14]
Homemade Pizza Pockets [15]
Ham & Cheese Pockets [16]
Southwest Rollups [17]
