Clever recipes include:
Freezer Chicken Pot Pies – A saucy filling and a double-thick crust are the secrets to pot pies than can be successfully backed from frozen.
Classic Pot Roast - A simple 19th century recipe and well-marbled chuck-eye roast offer truly beefy taste.
Herb-Crust Pork Roast – For flavor in every bite, we spread an herb paste in the middle and on top of the roast. A cheesy crumb crust is the crowning touch. Make one day, roast the next.
Make-Ahead Green Bean Casserole – Making this freezer-to-oven casserole with raw green beans is the key to fresh flavor and texture.
Creamy Macaroni and Cheese – Convenience, indulgence, and comfort in a straight-from-the-freezer casserole. The frozen bread-crumb mixture is sprinkled over the top just before baking.
Pizza from the Freezer – For a crisp, tender crust straight from the freezer, we combine some unlikely ingredients, like half-and-half and baking powder.
Blueberry Pie from the Freezer – Graham cracker crumbs and dried cranberries help make a blueberry pie that can go straight from the freezer to a hot oven.
