Must make easy freezer meals for new moms– or anyone looking to get ahead in the dinner department!  Quick and easy meals to freeze like meatloaf, chicken, chili, soup and more.

My top ten must make freezer meals for new moms- or anyone looking to get ahead in the dinner department!  Quick and easy meals to freeze like meatloaf, chicken, chili, soup and more.

With less than three weeks before baby is supposed to make his arrival, I am busy getting all of the last minute details in order- including stocking up on easy freezer meals!  I struggle enough to get dinner on the table some nights without a newborn so I’m determined to have some of our favorites ready and waiting this time around.

Easy Freezer Meals

I've gathered my favorite freezable meals below to share with you- some crockpot meals, a few easy dump meals, and of course some freezer casseroles. These freezer recipes are perfect whether you're expecting, wanting to gift a new mom, or just looking to get ahead in the dinner game.

Don’t forget dessert!

Another really great thing to freeze is cookies- they’re perfect for those 2am feedings!!  I especially love frozen Chewy Chocolate Cookies and Peanut Butter Cookies.  (Freeze cookies after baking as directed and allowing to fully cool.)

You can download my FREE Cookies e-book for more yummy cookie recipes.

6 weeks until baby #4 and before every new tiny person I toy with the idea of stocking my freezer but I can rarely find recipes that my people will eat (soo picky!) - this list is PERFECT! I’m pretty sure almost all of these will be winners??

Thank you for this list! I'm due any day and I know that dinners will be our biggest struggle once our second little one arrives! Having a toddler around doesn't make things any easier! :)

Quick question and apologies if I missed something! How do you reheat these freezer meals? A lot of these recipes say that they reheat nicely, I'm wondering how specifically do you do this from frozen? Do you pre-cook, then freeze, then put in fridge overnight to defrost, then put in oven or microwave to reheat? If so, how long at which temp for reheating (in the oven?). Please forgive me if this is a silly question - these recipes look great and I'd love to make lots of meals in advance to stock up the freezer before baby arrives but also don't want to be stuck in sleep deprivation post-baby wondering what I should be doing :)

Hi Kerry- hope this info helps: 1. Cook as directed, to reheat- thaw in the refrigerator overnight, I reheat in the microwave for each serving or reheat the batch on the stovetop (until heated through) 2. Cook as directed, to reheat- thaw in the refrigerator overnight, bake in the oven 350 degrees until the center is hot (usually up to 45 minutes) 3. Freeze uncooked, cook in the slow cooker as directed 4. Cook noodles, follow the recipe up until putting in the oven, freeze instead of baking. To reheat- thaw in the refrigerator overnight, bake in oven 350 degrees until the center is hot (usually up to 45 minutes) 5. Freeze uncooked, cook in the slow cooker as directed from frozen. 6. Cook the filling as directed- freeze. When ready to reheat, thaw in the refrigerator overnight, pour thawed filling into a frozen pie crust and bake as directed. 7. Prepare as directed, freeze instead of bake. To reheat- thaw in refrigerator and then bake as directed. 8. Cook as directed, to reheat- thaw in the refrigerator overnight, bake in the oven 350 degrees until the center is hot (usually up to 45 minutes) 9. Cook as directed, freeze without the noodles. To reheat- thaw in the refrigerator and reheat in the microwave per serving or on the stovetop. Add cooked noodles. 10. Cook as directed, to reheat- thaw in the refrigerator overnight, bake in the oven 350 degrees until the center is hot (usually up to 45 minutes)
