I'm trying to remember if tortillas (plain) freeze ok. I would do some tacos and freeze the tortillas separate but I can't remember if they thaw ok.
My three little girls and I made tortillas yesterday (one of my 6yo's favourite activities!) and froze what we didn't eat for supper. They work great. I just pile them up as we fry them, and put them all in a freezer ziploc bag when they are cool. I take out what we need, and they always separate really easily for me. just heat up in a fry pan to thaw. It only takes a minute or so. You can use them in any recipe or for wraps. I would like to do a whole bunch more before the baby is born - we always eat them up so quickly!!!
My mom always freezes store-bought tortillas, and they work great as well. I just like the taste and ingredients of home-made ones better!
I have frozen store bought ones in the past, but would love to make my own. Specially since I have stone ground flour just waiting to be used :
Please can you share your recipe Carlyn
This thread is so great!!
I just got the urge to freeze a bunch of meals before the new baby comes (5 weeks or so). I checked out a few library books and spent the past 2 days cooking. My freezer is literally PACKED FULL right now, which is unfortunate because I had planned on cooking more tomorrow, with ingredients already purchased for more meals! I am debating if I should go out & buy a small chest freezer. I can definitely see myself keeping up with this, it's so nice to know there is food handy. I keep opening the freezer and looking at it all!
chicken cordon bleu (12)
mini meatloaves (4)
cheesy chilada casserole (3)
vegetable lasagna (3)
feta & spinach lasagna rolls (32)
granola bars (48)
pizza crusts (5)
garlic mashed potatoes (4)
morroccan lentil soup (2 crock pots full)
... And I'm probably forgetting something else. I wanted to make cheese-stuffed shells, breakfast burritos, waffles, breadsticks.... yes I think I definitely need another freezer.
|holy monkey!! great work! that sounds wonderfully organized and on it!
would you please share your pizza crust recipe and how you are prepping them to freeze/thaw/cook? and the veg lasagna? and the granola bars? and the morraccan soup? and the cordon bleu? and enchilada casserole? pleeeeeeeze!!!!!
Someone mentioned not freezing sour cream. So if I make stroganof to freeze do I put in sour cream or leave it out and add right before we eat it? Oh, and what about stuffed shells and lasagna with ricotta cheese? it seems like that would not work. I froze ricotta once but not in a meal and it was not pretty.
