Making A Double Batch

October 30th, 2015 at 12:56 pm

I'm making a double batch of chili this morning. I will keep half or at least four servings in the fridge for tonight (maybe tomorrow) and freeze the rest for next month. I have chili on the plan for November 12. Smile

I'm in the beginning stages of thinking about Christmas baking. I'm sure that seems early, but my daughter and I do like to do this each year. I'm going to brain storm options, and then get her opinion. Once we know what we will make, I will decide how much and if we will double any recipes. If we make something in November we can freeze it for closer to the holiday. The next step would then to make the grocery list for those items. I like that if I start early I can find some coupons and sales on the ingredients and know exactly how much to purchase. I can also spread it out a bit so that it is hardly noticeable on the grocery bill.

What do you make in double or triple batches? Do you do this regularly or just once in awhile?

    This year I want to give away boxes of krakelingen, but first I am going to have to practice! Krakelingen are cookies, but are often referred to as "sugared Dutch pretzels."

    I've noticed some cookie recipes are touting they are great for baking and then putting in the freezer for the holidays.

    Chili, lasagna, and chicken tortellini. They all freeze great for future meals.

    Soup and chili. I do have a book on freezer/crockpot meals that I should take another look at.

    My black bean burgers - I make double and triple batches of those.

  8. PatientSaver Says:

    I always make my granola in double or even triple batches because I eat it daily and it goes fast. Normally, I have to make another batch every 2 or 3 weeks.

    Being single i don't often have to make things in double batches because i always have a lot left over anyway. Like when i make a big pot of soup...
