Sharing is caring!

Putting dinner on the table as a new mom is HARD. With barely a few hours of sleep, you can barely remember the last time you ate, let alone construct a full meal. If you’re hoping to reduce your time cooking, I’m so glad you’re here. This list of freezer meals for new moms was chosen specifically for you! All you have to do is prep on a good day, freeze, and then put it in the oven when you need it the most.

Best of all, these recipes are easy. Like, really easy! (If I successfully cooked them, believe me, it has to be easy…). Straight-forward ingredients, 10-15 minute prep times… everything a new mom could possibly need.

Before we start, below are a few other food-related posts for new moms you might want to check out. Enjoy!

15 Easy Freezer Meals for New Moms

20 Minute Tuscan Pasta

Honestly, I can’t get enough of this recipe. Not only is it so dang-ed good, but it’s ridiculously easy to make. This recipe calls for an easy alfredo-style sauce with bow-tie pasta and sun-dried tomatoes. If you’re looking to make this recipe a tad bit healthier (and lactation-friendly), you can add spinach and substitute the pasta with brown rice.

Orange Glazed Pork Chops

If you’re looking for easy freezer meals for new moms, Living Well Spending Less is a great resource. This particular recipe made it on the list because of its simplicity. You literally throw the ingredients in a bag, marinate for a few hours, and cook whenever the occasion calls. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

This burrito made by Ree Drummond is ON FIRE. It’s packed with jalapenos, spicy sausage, and salsa. I made a couple of modifications to the recipe. I used maple sausage, subbed the tater tots for diced potatoes, and used spinach instead of jalapenos.

By the way, if you’re looking for another place to find easy freezer meals for new moms, Pioneer Woman is a good place to start!

Favorite Chicken Potpie

When you’re trying to meal plan and eat healthier, you quickly develop a few freezer staples. This chicken potpie recipe is one of mine. It’s easy to make (if I prep my chicken beforehand, I can throw everything together in less than ten minutes) and, if properly packaged, it can stay in the freezer for a very long time. I also love that it’s also highly customizable.

The chicken pot pie recipe from taste of home is a little bit more involved (you create your own sauce from scratch), but its REALLY tasty.

French Toast Sticks

Speaking of tasty…Tasty has a delicious French Toast freezer meal that’s perfect for one of those busy weekend days. I don’t know about you, but I like my weekend breakfasts to be extra sweet. This recipe could probably feed about four…or just you. Your choice!

Veggie Lasagna Rollups

This Veggie Lasagna Rollup recipe is easy to make and LOADED with absolutely vital nutrients for your postpartum health. If you absolutely had to, you could substitute the ricotta with cottage cheese, but I think the ricotta truly makes this recipe what it is!

Freezer Chicken and Adobo Enchiladas

I love this enchilada recipe because it’s simple and naturally low in calories. Plus, it’s easily customizable. You can easily modify the recipe to fit whatever diet you’re on and it will still freeze well.

Freezer Meatballs

A word about One Hundred Dollars a Month, if you’re looking for cheap recipes and different ways to save money after becoming a new mom, this website is it! Not only does she have tons of easy freezer meals for new moms, but she offers practical tips to save in all other areas of your life.

But back to the recipe. This recipe is pretty straight-forward and produces about 30 meatballs. I love to cook my meatballs with BBQ sauce or beef sauce (Swedish meatballs), to add some variety.

Taco Chili

The one ingredient you WON’T find in this chili recipe? Beans. And good riddance. This Taco Chili is rich in flavor and extremely hearty.

Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches

Like the breakfast burritos, these roast beef sandwiches are perfect for an on-the-go lunch or dinner. The sandwiches already have a decent amount of flavor thanks to the dijon sauce, but if you’d like to add a little bit of spice, you can try cooking them with sliced green and red peppers.

Easy Calzones

This recipe had me at “easy”.  While these calzones isn’t technically a make ahead recipe, it’s pretty easy to freeze them and reheat (for about 2 minutes).

5 Ingredient Beef Stroganoff

Everything about this recipe is easy. Simply add the ingredients to the crockpot, package the sauce, and reheat with your choice of grains when you’re ready.

Shepherds Pie

Shepherds pie has always been one of the staple dishes of our house, but I hadn’t considered it as a freezer meal until I found this recipe. This recipe is ridiculously flavorful. I think what makes this recipe is the mashed potatoes: Mavil suggests just a little bit of nutmeg. Absolutely delicious.

Sweet Barbecued Pork Chops

This recipe is pretty self-explanatory! It takes just a few minutes to prep and is done in about 10 minutes. Just take note that you do want to partially thaw the pork chops before cooking.

Saucy Garlic Chicken

The sauce in this recipe isn’t exactly what I would call “healthy” but it’s easy to make and can be paired with healthier sides.
