Introduction   When it comes to freezer food, it’s hard to beat a good casserole. Almost any casserole will freeze well and most can go from the freezer straight to the oven. A little while later, you have a complete, hot dinner ready to serve.

My wonderful assistant LeaAnn and I put together this collection of some of our favorite freezer recipes. We divided them by Main Dishes, Side Dishes and Fruit Casseroles. I hope you and your family will enjoy them as much as we have.

Toward the end of this recipe collection you’ll find printable labels for each of the dishes. Print them… cut them out and tape them to your freezer dishes. They include the name of the dish, a space for you to note the date that you cooked the meal and some reheating instructions.

Having the reheating instructions right on your freezer meal makes it easy for someone else to prepare the meal in case you’re running late or are out sick. It’s just one of the many perks of freezer cooking. Let’s dive right in and of course you are welcome to email me at susanne@hillbillyhousewife.com with any questions or comments. If you have a great freezer recipe I would love to know about it as well. Let’s get cooking.
