Some people do weekly food prep….
I do FREEZE prep!
Let me explain… 😉
As much as I’d like to be totally on top of things and use the weekends to prep, chop, and cook a bunch of food for the week, I just don’t have the time or patience to do it! Plus I like being able to be spontaneous with my meals and snacks, so prepping food in advance in anticipation of what I might want would just be waaay too hard.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t do my fair share of my own sort of ‘prep’. This involves a an every couple of weeks bulk shopping and cooking spree every couple of weeks to replenish some foods that I like to freeze and keep on hand for additions to quick meals and snacks all month long.
I always end up freezing the baked goods I make because I never am able to eat them up in enough time before they go bad. Also, as I mentioned above, I like variety! So I like having options and not having to eat the same recipes all week long.
Here are some of the staples I always make and then freeze:
and one of my favorites….
Greek Spiced TURKEY BURGERS!
- 1 lb Member's Mark Lean Ground Turkey
- 1 egg
- 2 small cloves garlic, finely chopped
- ¼ cup red onion, finely chopped
- ¼ cup parsley, fresh
- ½ tsp basil, dried
- ¼ tsp coriander, dried
- ½ tsp dill, dried
- ½ tsp Oregano, dried
- ¼ tsp smoked paprika
- ½ tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 tsp thyme
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Mix all ingredients together. Form turkey mixture into 6 equal sized patties. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake burgers at 425 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until cooked all the way through.
Not only are these burgers simple to make, amazingly flavorful, and freeze well….but they are made using high quality ingredients from my local Sam’s Club. Good tasting food is one thing, but affordable, good tasting food is 100% better!
I always go to Sam’s Club before a big ‘freeze prep’ day because I can get all the ingredients I need without having to spend too much. For my last trip their I bought the Member’s Mark All Natural Ground Turkey (for the burgers), Member’s Mark Plain Greek Yogurt (for the tzatziki sauce), and even splurged on some vitaminwater zero that I saw they were carrying because I had never tried it before. It’s sweetened with Stevia and I love that I also get my A, B, & C vitamins…hence the name. 😉 My favorite flavor is the XXX (Acai-Blueberry-Pomegranate). Have you tried these yet?
My favorite way to eat the burgers is chopped up with spinach on a toasted whole wheat pita and topped with lots of homemade tzatziki sauce!
The size of these burgers makes them a great addition to any meal! Nice and big, hearty, and protein PACKED. They’ll provide you with a hefty dose of lean, clean protein at your next meal. And with grilling weather coming, you can swap the oven for the grill and cook these outside!
Let me know if you try these out for yourself!
Are you a food prepper? Or perhaps a “FREEZE prepper” like me?
What recipes have you been able to freeze successfully?
Favorite type of cuisine? I love Greek, Indian, and Mexican flavors!
