5 Healthy Freezer Meals Made With Ground Turkey

I got a great deal on ground turkey at Costco and started thinking about how I could use it to make freezer meals (It only cost $2.79 per pound!).  Since I have four children ages 6 and under my favorite freezer recipes are the ones that don’t require any cooking ahead of time.  I can quickly combine the ingredients in freezer bags and stack them in the freezer.

Here are my five favorite freezer meals made with ground turkey:

  1. Crockpot Tomato Turkey and Vegetable Soup
  2. Crockpot Turkey Black Bean Chili
  3. Crockpot Mexican Stuffed Peppers with Ground Turkey
  4. Turkey Burger Burritos
  5. Mozzarella-Stuffed Turkey Pesto Meatballs


These are all recipes that we love and make over and over again.

What’s so great about these freezer meals?

  • They’re budget-friendly.  When ground turkey is on sale I can make all five at once and freeze for up to three months.
  • They’re super easy to prep.  I can assemble and freeze all five in about an hour.
  • They’re healthy and delicious!

Crockpot Mexican Stuffed Peppers with Ground Turkey

I make a lot of crockpot meals so I love that these five recipes can be cooked different ways.  The Mozzarella-Stuffed Turkey Pesto Meatballs are one of my family’s favorite recipes to cook in the oven and serve with a side of spaghetti.  And, the Turkey Burger Burritos can even be re-heated in the microwave!

Freezer-Friendly Turkey Burger Burritos

If you’ve never made freezer meals before, here’s how I make them quickly and efficiently:

  1. I buy all of the ingredients ahead of time.
  2. I print the recipes and label the freezer bags (or pans).
  3. I start by making any recipes that need to be cooked before freezing so they have time to cool. (In this case it’s only the Turkey Burger Burritos.)
  4. I assemble the crockpot freezer meals by layering their veggies, sauces and spices, and meats in their freezer bags.
  5. I make the casserole-type dishes (like the Mozzarella-Stuffed Turkey Pesto Meatballs).

Then I stack all the finished meals in my freezer and freeze for up to three months.  So easy!!

i just want to make sure when freezing the ground turkey you do not have to cook before hand. how do u break it up when you put into the crockpot to cook since its all in one heap?

Cristina, no you do not need to pre-cook the ground turkey. You can just break it up with the back of a fork before serving.
