How To Freeze Casseroles?

Recommended Posts

Ok, this may be a stupid question, but I have never had to do it before going gluten-free. We just got a deep freeze, and I want to freeze some prepared meals, cookies, brownies, etc. My family loves Cheesburger Pie (crustless quiche type meal). It uses eggs. So, my question is, do I freeze it before I bake it, or after? I wasn't sure if it is safe to freeze raw eggs. Also, I made some cookies today, and I scooped them up and put them on a pan and froze them. I am about to go put them in an airtight tub. This is safe, right? I don't want to make my family sick, and I need some "convience" back in my life. I miss just pulling something out of the freezer or fridge and cooking it in a few minutes when we are short on time!

Thanks!!

hm, not sure about the quiche. i will put my cookies/muffins in ziploc bags-either individual sized ones to be grabbed for lunches, or big ones to bring out just for snacking. some things like enchiladas i will prepare but not bake, just throw right in the freezer. i like to make things in casserole dishes (or bread pans cuz i usually just cook for 2) lined w/ foil, then fold up the foil, lift out of the pan, and pop in the freezer. make sure you label stuff, cuz it's harder to identify things when they're frozen. i have successfully frozen soups, and casseroles w/ tinkyada pasta. hopefully others will post more help :)

I think with something like the casserolle you mentioned you would bake it first and freeze it. So when it is ready you thaw and warm to eat. It would deffinately be a more convienant way to pre-cook the food, then freeze it and re-warm when needed. I've only made muffins,pancake,cupcakes and rolls to freeze and take out as needed.
