Since it's now just my husband and me, I love making these frozen TV dinners from my leftovers. It really cuts down on food waste and the dinners are a tremendous help when I'm in a time crunch. Just pop them in the oven, eat and go, no muss, no fuss! They also reduce the amount of leftover mess in my refrigerator. I can also share them with people who might need them. You can find the aluminum trays on Amazon.com and many restaurant suppliers carry them in stock. They really are a great time and money saver!

How to Make Homemade TV Dinners

  1. On the white topside of lid, date and label the contents of the compartments.
  2. Fill compartments with your favorite meats, vegetables and/or desserts. (I usually fill with a meat and two vegetables).
  3. Secure labeled lid and place in freezer.
  4. REHEATING INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place frozen dinner on cookie sheet and place in oven. Heat for about 35 to 40 minutes. Carefully remove lid and enjoy!
