Save time by making several casseroles at one time to freeze for another date. It doesn’t take much longer, but the rewards are huge!

Casseroles get a bad rap. I don’t know why. I suppose because some mothers somewhere made them really icky. And, well, there’s the “I-don’t-want-my-foods-to-touch-each-other” thing. But, really?

Who can resist a well-built lasagna? And Lawnmower Taco? My kids are all over that. They now inhale the entire pan before hubs and I can even dish up.

The best time-saving trick is to make several copies of the same casserole at one time and freeze them. It doesn’t take much more time to make three lasagnes than it does to make one. And you’ll have an easy meal to pull out on a busy weeknight or to gift to friends.

This is one of the easiest ways to fill the freezer with make-ahead meals. Casseroles are one-dish dinners in many ways. Just add a side salad and dinner is served!

Favorite Casseroles to Make and Freeze:

No good freezer cookbook would be without a few good casseroles. Those with an asterisk (*) are in my book.

  1. I agree! When I know a few crazy days are ahead, I thaw a lasagna. It is wonderful to enjoy a delicious home cooked meal at the end of a busy day without spending any time in the kitchen. During dinner I am thankful I made two on a less hectic day so we are not eating overpriced takeout tonight. Thanks for introducing me to freezer cooking. My family thanks you too!

  2. I really love casseroles, for many different reasons, but they are not working for my family right now! My two little boys need foods that are not all mixed up – they like to see what everything is! If I make a casserole, I’m almost guaranteed that they will not eat it. Ugh. Some day I will get to enjoy casseroles again!
