In an effort to health up my family’s lunches, I am steering away from those frozen prepackaged sandwiches that saved me back in my busy December, to homemade frozen sandwiches, and so far so good. The Frozen Chicken Sandwich was a huge hit with my kids so I moved on to trying the Cheeseburger by simply increasing the size of my White Castle-like Sliders.
Start by sprinkling a large 11×17 inch pan with dried minced onions and pressing 2.5 pounds of ground beef over top. Sprinkle with season salt (I use Penzey’s) and bake in a 375 degree oven for 18 minutes.
Place wrapped burgers back in the bun bag and toss in the freezer until your family is ready to pack them in their lunches. Microwave reheating times will vary, but mine took only about 45 seconds while still wrapped.
These sandwiches have made for very happy children and a relaxed Momma! Great for busy nights too.
Oh and if that rat Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow today, he may see my meat cleaver. Happy Groundhog Day!
