I love quick easy freezer meals you can prepare ahead and have ready to eat in no time.
Irresistible pork chop bacon wrap freezer meal
Sometimes life can get a little bit hectic and dinner for the family can be difficult. I try to plan ahead for those times. This is something that I like to cook on those busy days. This is also one of our favorite ways to eat pork chops.
This is what I do
I buy my pork chops in a family pack which makes it just a little bit cheaper. I am always looking for a great deal. I look for a pork chop that is sliced thin so it will be easy to roll up.
Trim off any of the fat you might not want on it. I usually trim it off as I eat it, the fat, while cooking, can add more flavor to the meat.
Roll the pork chop up tightly. Remember the thinner the cut of the pork chop, the easier it is to roll.
Take your bacon and wrap it tightly around the pork chop. You can use a toothpick to hold it in place. I usually set it on the pan without the toothpick. I put the ends of the bacon on the bottom of the roll. This seems to hold really well.
After I have them all rolled up and on a cookie sheet, I put them into the freezer to freeze overnight. When they have had a chance to freeze I take them off of the pan and put them into a freezer bag and put them in the freezer.
Be sure to label it. There is nothing worse than trying to figure out what you have in that frozen bag.
Ready to cook
Now they are ready to cook whenever you are. If you know ahead of time you are going to cook these for dinner you can set them in the refrigerator and start to thaw them out.
If I need them for something quick and they are frozen solid, I put them in a pan that is covered and start to cook on a low to medium heat turning as needed. I cook them covered, this seems to help the pork chop stay moist. After the pork chop is cooked, I take the lid off the pan and fry the bacon until crispy.
Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the pork chop.
I hope you enjoy this delicious quick freezer meal tip. Do you have any more ideas? I would love to hear them.
