101 Four and Five Ingredient Freezer Meal Recipes

On January 25, 2019 by Once a Month Meals

Please tell me I’m not the only one whose freezer has been running low on freezer meals. It’s witching hour and I’m contemplating another glass of wine or another cup of coffee and wondering how I’m going to feed all these hungry people (including myself). So I stand in the kitchen and sip my beverage of choice while scrolling Pinterest for EASY four or five ingredient recipes – hopefully, and preferably ones I already have! Anybody else? 🙋🏽

Since we’ve been there and we know what it’s like, we decided to help and round up 101 four and five ingredient recipes for you! The best part is they are ALL freezer-friendly so you can plan a cooking day and hopefully won’t end up hopeless in the kitchen with a glass of wine!
