Favorite Ingredients Friday (Freezer Edition)

Good Friday! It's time for a special Favorite Ingredients Friday: Freezer Edition recipe exchange! Please share your favorite recipes for bulk meals that freeze and reheat easily.

My recipe is something I found on Mom's Budget. This recipe is quick, easy, and these really does taste great after taking it out of the freezer and thawing them!

Pizza Bagel's


  • 12 bagels - plain, wheat, or sundried tomato
  • Pizza sauce
  • Assorted pizza toppings (we like pepperoni & sausage)
  • Mozzarella cheese


  • Cut bagels in half and place them face up on workspace.
  • Spread tomato sauce in a thin layer, then add toppings. By making a variety of toppings, they won't get boring in lunches or for snacks.
  • Sprinkle with cheese then broil in oven until cheese melts.
  • Cool completely and package them individually (half a bagel per bag). We have a foodsaver vacuum sealer and we love it!
  • Freeze.
  • These can be put into school lunches frozen, and they will thaw by lunchtime.
  • Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday- Freezer Edition recipes! Remember, I may not be able to visit all of your recipes today until but fear not, I will stop by to visit your recipe as soon as I can!

    Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

    Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

    I love pizza bagels. Never thought of making them ahead of time and freezing them. Its a great idea! I always have left over bagels, and i usually just through them in the freezer, and they get forgotten. Thanks for the recipe. Im definitely going to use it next time i buy bagels. Have a happy Friday!

    That is a great idea. I will definitely be trying these out. I used to buy those mini ones all the time, but haven't in ages. These sound better.

    I wish we had one of those vacuum sealers. It would make life so much easier. The pizza bagels sound yummy. My older son would love those.

    My kids love the little pizza bagels and they are so expensive and they are gone in a flash.
    Thanks for hosting.
