Freezer Cooking in an Hour: Bananas, Chicken, Breakfast Cookies, and 5-Star Cheeseburger Casserole

I finally did some more freezer cooking yesterday — and it felt so good! I first froze a bunch of too ripe bananas to use in smoothies and banana bread.

Then I baked some chicken to chop and freeze for homemade pizza and chicken casseroles.

This little guy loved helping me make breakfast cookies.

Of course, I didn’t follow the recipe exactly… what’s new?! :)

But I was super happy with how they turned out — see the tweaked recipe here.

I also made some 5 Star Cheeseburger Casseroles to freeze (and yes, those are peas you see peeking out from under the cheese — I threw them into the mix since I had some leftover in the fridge!)

    I had a value pack of boneless skinless chicken breasts ($1.79/lb) and a value pack of ground beef ($1.99/lb) that I needed to do something with today. With 5 pounds of ground beef I made 30 meatballs, 4 regular size hamburgers, 4 slider size hamburgers and 12 meatloaf cups. We ate the meatloaf tonight and the rest is in the freezer! The chicken was really big so I butterflied 3 of the breasts and froze them to make chicken cutlet sandwiches. Two others were put in bags with marinade and one pound was cut up to cook and use later. Took a little over an hour as the baby woke up from his nap while I was in the middle of it and needed his snack! Love your recipes and posts which help me remember I need to be better about keeping food in the freezer now that school has started again.

    I made the 5 star cheeseburger casserole last week. I’d love to know if you thought yours was a little dry or if it was fine. I felt like it needed something else, just not sure what. I’ve started trying to plan ahead for school and have muffins and such in the freezer.
