If you couldn’t tell already, I love freezer recipes! So often, when I get to the end of my busy day, I do not feel like cooking dinner. It’s so much easier to take a few hours over the weekend, prepare several freezer recipes ahead of time so that on any given day all I have to do is remove a meal from the freezer and pop it in the oven.
Take a look at this yummy Meatball Mayhem casserole.
