If you've always fancied cutting your workload in half when it comes to weeknight meals, look no further. We've pulled together our favourite big-batch recipes that make enough to be portioned off and stowed away in the freezer for the week ahead. Rustle up a big Mexican Chilli to serve over jacket potatoes, with rice or baked between fresh lasagne sheets and topped with cheese. You won't believe how much time these will save you.
No matter how accomplished you are as a cook, we all have those evenings where fancy meals aren't an option. After a long, hectic day all you want to do is have a hot, delicious meal in front of you and maybe a cheeky glass of wine.
We love these effortless Big-Batch Healthy Beef, Mushroom and Spinach Calzones you can make ahead of time, portion up into sandwich bags and freeze for later. There's nothing quite like molten mozzarella, combined with tangy tomato sauce and crispy bread. You won't believe that it's healthier than regular pizza.
Make sure you have freezer bags and containers at the ready so you can portion up meals for the week and beyond quickly and easily. Label things up with what it is, the date and any directions you might need later - a mouth-watering hot dinner will be ready for you to devour in no time.
