Hockey season has started and ground beef is on sale! I need recommendations for freezer meals using ground beef. So far, I have made stuffed peppers, cabbage rolls, meatballs and lasagna. Thank you for your help!

Bolognese Sauce

An excellent chunky pasta sauce with beef, pork, lots of vegetables and tons of flavor. Freeze any unused portions for later use. If you have fresh herbs, you may substitute 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil for the dried basil in this recipe.

Can be used to stuff shells/manicotti or simply over pasta.

Baked Ziti I

Combine ziti pasta, prepared spaghetti sauce, and three kinds of Italian cheeses for a surprisingly quick and budget-friendly Italian casserole that's easy enough for a week-night meal or a covered-dish supper.

Hearty Beef Enchiladas

Submitted by: Richard Clements 
My husband loves his food extra-cheesy, so I can never put too much cheese over the top of these enchiladas! You can set out small bowls of diced onions and tomatoes so folks can add their own garnishes. --Joylyn Trickel

Hi the4taals. I suggest something really simple: hamburger patties. I make them and freeze them all the time. I put onions and garlic with egg and salt in the food processor, which grinds them up really fine so you get the good flavor but not the little chunks. I then use a burger press from a restaurant supply store to make nice uniform patties. I use this for convenience food all the time.

This is a really good and satisfying dish. I have never gotten into freezer meals myself, so I have no idea if this would work. Another idea is shepherds pie (I guess it's really cottage pie). I have my own version but maybe someone has a recipe they would recommend. I love the Mexican Shepherds Pie on this site!

This is a Mexican version of the Shepherd's Pie that is so popular in the UK. I decided to try this one night when I did not have any mashed potatoes. Its cheap, quick and easy...and my kids loved it! Serve with a tossed green salad for a great family meal!

Here is the one I just mentioned. I love this! Again, not sure if it would freeze well. Another idea is mexican rice with beef. Don't know if that freezes either.
