What paleo frozen entrees reheat well

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created April 06, 2011 at 2:47 AM

I just purchased a vacuum sealer to be able to seal cooked meals up for my chest freezer.

Does anyone have any recommendations of recipes that "reheat well"? I find it easier to bring them to my crazy work place to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Most of the reheating will be done in the microwave.

Imo its the best tasting cut of meat for braises regardless of price. And makes the best beef broth! Beef cheecks are excelent too. Cant decide which i do like more, propably tail cause i can chew the bones :D

I just made oxtail for the first time a couple months ago- sooo good! One of the cheapest grassfed items I can find, and a great source of fat to boot.

I do a similar lasagna recipe using sliced eggplant instead of squash. Yum!

I was going to say quiches too! I make a regular crustless quiche with cream, cut it into portions and wrap it well before freezing. Comes out beautifully.

I make these, but I place a strip of half-cooked bacon around the outside edge of the cup before pouring the egg mixture in. It adds structure and taste!

soups, stews and chili are usually pretty safe bets. sauces do great, too. individual portions of casseroles like the butternut squash lasagne recipes that have been posted in a few paleo blogs recently go well. meatballs.

Have you tried mini egg quiches? They heat up well in the microwave and are easy to eat.

Fill a muffin pan (I use silicon cups) about halfway with whisked egg and add whatever you would usually add to an omelet. Stick it in the oven at 350 until the egg is cooked thoroughly and has browned on the top...between 30 and 45 minutes. Let them cool, then pack however many you want for a serving size and freeze. I usually eat two for breakfast, but that's up to your taste.

Here's a sample recipe

Enjoy!

I make pulled pork shoulder, and freeze some in the cooking liquid- works great! I second akd's chili recommendation also.

I have a book called "Make a Mix" and though most of the mixes are for baking (which I now cannot use) a lot of them are vegetable and meat based. Basically you cook up a large batch of something like chicken & veg or beef & veg or ground beef, portion it into reasonable sizes and freeze it. This not only allows you to make quick meals at home but gives you some grab and go options for reheating at work. :)

There's lots of blogs out there of people who do bulk buying and bulk cooking either weekly or monthly. Check it out, maybe you can find some suggestions and paleo friendly foods, too! :)
