Meet The Freezer Friendz!

Freezer Friendz was started in March 2008 by moms who were looking for a way to simplify dinnertime in their homes. The "Friendz" currently include Amy, Beth, Jackie, Jen, and Wendy. We meet once a month with our co-op to trade prepared freezer dinners with each other. We make the same dinner 5 times, then trade - yielding each of us 5 different dinners for the month, even though we each only cooked one recipe! We rotate our recipes amongst the following categories: beef & pasta, beef no pasta, chicken & pasta, chicken no pasta, soup/stew/chili and "other" (anything that does not fall under the previously listed categories).

Check out the comments with each recipe to see what the Freezer Friendz and others thought about the meals.

Feel free to leave your comments too after you try a recipe. We'd love to know what you think!

Pizza English Muffins by Debbie

2 pounds ground beef
1 1/2 pounds bulk pork sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
3 packages (12 ounces each) English muffins, split
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

In a large pot, cook the beef, sausage, and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain. Stir in the tomato paste, garlic salt, oregano, and cayenne. Spread over the cut side of each English muffin. Place on baking sheets. Combine the cheese and sprinkle over the meat mixture on each English muffin. Cover and freeze for up to 3 months. To eat right away, bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Serving Day:
Bake from frozen at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Enjoy!


  1. We liked these. The kids noted that they did not taste like pizza, but they still liked them. The adults felt the same.

  2. Our family loved these "little Pizza's" There was plenty for all. A few kids commented that it was spicy, but I only found it to be in a few bites per pizza. Not sure why. Great taste.

  3. These were easy and yummy. I agree about the "pizza" taste not being very strong but that also made it not-too-spicy for the kiddos. Thanks for a fun meal!

  4. Great easy meal for after church!Thanks!
