In the spirit of planning ahead, we’ve assembled a few of our favorite make-ahead freezer meals. Each recipe comes with easy instructions for freezing and re-heating. When preparing these, our farmers like to double the recipe. That way you get dinner tonight, and then an easy dinner whenever you’re craving seconds.

Freezer Bean & Cheese Burritos

Nothing beats a good burrito filled with delicious ingredients, and this yummy recipe is one of our favorites (pictured above.) Packed with bell pepper, white rice, black beans, zesty spices, and Cabot’s creamy and perfect Mild Cheddar, these beauties freeze perfectly and make a wonderful meat-free lunch or dinner whenever it’s convenient. Add some chips and guacamole on the side and you’re ready for a south of the border feast.

Southwestern Pasta Bake

This Southwestern casserole is a delectable one-pot wonder. Made with ground turkey, garlic, jalapeños, fire roasted tomatoes, bow tie pasta, and rich & robust Cabot New York Extra Sharp Cheddar, it’s a playful blend of pantry ingredients that comes together just right for the perfect bite. Serve with a side salad and enjoy.

Twice Baked Potatoes

These double-baked beauties are cheesy, savory, and utterly irresistible. Russet potatoes filled with a creamy mashed potato filling that’s loaded with our farmers’ wildly sharp Seriously Sharp Cheddar then topped with crispy bacon chunks and fresh scallions. Dip in Cabot Sour Cream and savor every gooey, steamy bite.
