  1. Hi, I had a question about the serving sizer and number of gallon bags needed. Does 6 servings mean 6 different meals or is each recipe doubled and contains 6 servings each. Thaks!

    1. Hi Jennifer! This recipe serves 4 people but if you are looking at documents for 6 servings, it would mean that each recipe is doubled and you are cooking for 6 servings each. Gallon bags are a little different with 6 servings as well. We assume a gallon bag will hold 4 servings. So anytime you are cooking for 6, you will divide all of the food between 4 bags and then defrost 2 bags when you are ready to eat it. Hope that helps but if you have more questions, feel free to email us at info at onceamonthmeals.com
