Freezeasy Meal Prep Directions

  1. Grate 1 small white onion.
  2. Combine the 2 lbs. ground beef with the grated onion. Then mix in 2 tsp minced garlic, 8 tsp chopped parsley, 4 tsp paprika, 4 tsp ground cumin and 2 tsp salt in a medium mixing bowl. Form into 8 patties.

To each gallon-size plastic freezer baggie, add the following ingredients:

  • 4 burger patties
  • Optional, piece of foil or parchment paper between patties to prevent sticking

Remove as much air as possible and seal. Add label to baggie and freeze.

Freeze & Thaw Instructions

Put baggie in the freezer and freeze up to 6 months in fridge freezer or 12 months in a deep freezer. Thaw in the fridge overnight, or a warm bowl of water for about 20 minutes, before transferring to the grill and grilling as directed. Caramelize the onions as directed and serve on the burgers.

Special notes

If you don’t have a tray for your grill, put the patties in the freezer for 30 minutes to help them firm up and hold together better when grilling. Or you could grill them from partially frozen. Alternative cooking method: wrap the patties tightly in foil and place them in a 350 F oven for about 5 – 10 minutes until the desired temperature is reached.
