Rhiannon loves hamburgers. L.O.V.E.S. them. Ask her what she wants to have for breakfast/lunch/dinner/supper and she'll say "hamgerber" or chicken.
I am not so high and mighty of a healthy-food-freak that I haven't done my share of feasting at the local burger joint. But seven-dollar burgers at the sit-down restaurant in town or even the crappy dollar menu burgers at the fast food joint just aren't going to happen all that often.
I had a weak moment at the grocery store last week and bought a package of pre-formed, frozen hamburger patties. Normally I like to make our own using local burger, but I'm always forgetting to take it out of the freezer to defrost and this time there was NO time for defrosting. I had a hungry kidd'o at home and she wanted burgers!
So I cooked up all twelve burgers, fed the hamburger-craving toddler and then individually wrapped the remaining cooked patties and stuck them in the freezer. The last time I baked homemade buns I had extra so put them in the freezer.
Now when Rhiannon wants a hamburger it takes me less than five minutes to pull out the frozen burgers & rolls, pop them in the microwave, assemble as directed by toddler, then place it in front of her gaping maw:
So far I've been successful with the burgers, pancakes and kid-sized pizzas. I'm always looking for freezer-fast-food ideas for Rhiannon. Anyone have any good ones they'd like to share?
