Freezer Cooking: Squash Casserole

I don't know about you, but there are times when I just don't have time to prepare a meal from scratch!   But then, neither do I want the expense of eating out or just grabbing 'whatever' when time is of the essence and the family needs to be fed.  My solution ... freezer cooking!

For the purposes of this post and my intentions, freezer meals are meals or sides prepared ahead of time and frozen ready to thaw and cook when needed.  My goal is to build up a good supply of freezer meals in my freezer for use when needed.

Since we're harvesting lots of squash right now and since we really like squash casserole, I decided the first thing I would prepare would be squash casseroles.

Here's the recipe I used:

1 quart (about 6 small) yellow squash
1/2 to 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup cracker crumbs or bread crumbs
1 egg beaten
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup milk

Boil squash and onions in salted water until tender, drain.
Mash squash and onions with remaining ingredients, combing well.
Plae in buttered casserole dish
Bake at 425 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes or until done.

Labeled and ready for the freezer, complete with cooking directions and the date it was prepared and frozen.

As you can see I froze them in tinfoil pans.

Do you do any freezer cooking?  What are your tried and true favorites?  Do you have any freezer cooking tips to share?
