I'm so excited to start a fun summer recipe series on the blog today!

Last summer, I compiled a list of the 10 most popular Instant Pot Freezer Meals that I had published on the blog and broke each recipe down into its own post. At the end of the summer, I did one big Freezer Meal Boot Camp prep session for those 10 meals and shared it with you guys. It's been super popular over the past year and was the perfect solution to keeping up with my editorial calendar with two small kids at home for a few months.

I loved doing that series so much that I decided to bring a different one back for this summer! This time around, I'm doing something a little different – I decided to take on a whole different kind of freezer meals for this summer's series. I've been so intrigued by the idea of sheet pan dinners lately – they looked just as easy as the Instant Pot freezer meals I've been creating over the past couple of years and had the ability to make dinners that just weren't possible in a pressure cooker.

So this time around, I'm doing a series on sheet pan dinners!

And, after completing most of the sheet pan dinners I'll be sharing this summer, let me tell you – I am in love. They are super easy and really different from the pressure cooker meals you've been accustomed to in my freezer meals. They give the cook the ability to make crisper, less mushy foods than in a pressure cooker and require just as little babysitting as Instant Pot meals. I also think they give the meal so much more flavor – the roasting that happens in sheet pan dinners just intensifies the flavor in any food, whether it's a veggie or meat. I'm not saying I won't ever make Instant Pot meals again (because they are most definitely my go-to in certain situations), but I'm so happy I took this project on – it's been a hit with my family and given me a completely different tool in my easy cooking arsenal!

Here's how this sheet pan dinners series will work…

I’m going to be sharing a recipe for each week of the summer (10 weeks total). The week after I share the last one, I’ll have a full pack of printables, recipes, and prep instructions to make all of these recipes at once for your freezer, just like my other Freezer Meal Boot Camps.

A few simple tips…

(affiliate links used)

  • Aluminum foil is your friend! I line my cookie sheets in aluminum foil before putting the meal on to cook each time. Makes clean-up a breeze.
  • Aluminum foil is also helpful to guard against drips in your oven. Most of these meals will be melting off a good bit of condensation when cooking – that can sometimes make for a messy oven (and lots of smoke). To prevent this, use a baking sheet with a 1/2-1″ lip around the edge. If you don't have that, fold the edges of your aluminum foil up to make a lip – that helps!
  • These bag openers are a must-have for prepping these freezer meals. It holds your freezer bag open to make meal assembly so much easier. I normally freeze my meals in these containers for Instant Pot meals, but for storage purposes, gallon freezer bags were my choice for this boot camp – it makes freezer storage much easier.
  • I normally try to put my freezer meals in the fridge the morning of serve day to allow for a little bit of thawing. This allows any ingredients frozen together to break apart and for the meal to cook evenly. If you choose not to do this (and are cooking the meal straight from your freezer), I'd recommend adding 15-20 minutes to your cook time – definitely keep an eye on your meal once the recommend cook time below is over.

Ingredient List 1: If freezing these sheet pan dinners, put the following in your freezer bag:

  • 1lb stew meat
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 12oz bags frozen broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

(Don’t forget to label your meal – here’s a free printable for that!)

Ingredients Needed For Serve Day:

  • 1.5 cups white rice (prepped in the Instant Pot – tutorial coming Thursday!)
  • Soy sauce for serving

(If Prepping From Frozen) On Serve Day…

  • Allow your meal to gently thaw in the fridge for 6-8 hours before cooking (if skipping this step, add 15-20 supervised minutes to the cooking time).
  • Line your sheet pan with aluminum foil for easy clean-up.
  • Place meal (in a single layer) on lined cookie sheet. Spread as thinly as possible.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
  • Serve over white rice and drizzle with soy sauce.

(If Prepping From Fresh) On Serve Day…

  • Line your sheet pan with aluminum foil for easy clean-up.
  • Place meal (in a single layer) on lined cookie sheet. Spread as thinly as possible.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
  • Serve over white rice and drizzle with soy sauce.

    Do you have the freezer meal labels that are NOT filled out – to use with my own freezer meals? I have some recipes of my own I’d like to label and fill in myself. Thanks.
