36 Fun and Family-Friendly Keto Freezer Meals https://ketosummit.com/keto-freezer-meals

Keto Freezer Meals – Breakfast

Keto Bacon Mini Frittata

– Keto Summit

Keto Bacon Mini Frittata

Ingredients: asparagus, bacon, onions, eggs, coconut milk, salt, pepper.

Mini foods are so appealing to look at and these Keto frittatas are no different. They are great served warm for breakfast, can be carried to work for a tasty lunch or simply enjoyed as a snack. Children are also keen to try mini foods, so these can be a good way to get them eating more healthily. If you are not too keen on the taste of asparagus, you could use green beans instead.

Keto 2-Ingredient Muffins

– Keto Summit


Keto 2-Ingredient Muffins

Ingredients: whole nuts (hazelnuts or almonds), eggs.

With only two ingredients, this recipe must be one of the simplest ever! The muffins are tasty just as they are, but you can adapt the recipe to suit your needs. If you would like a hint of chocolate in your muffins, add in some sweetener and cocoa powder, or use different nuts to change the taste. You can even make them savory by adding cooked bacon pieces and still keep them Keto-friendly.

Paleo Bacon Lemon Thyme Breakfast Muffins

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Bacon Lemon Thyme Breakfast Muffins

Ingredients: almond flour, bacon bits, ghee, eggs, lemon thyme, baking soda.

Paleo muffins are a great introduction to eating savory for breakfast if you have been used to sugary cereals or bread before. They have the same sort of consistency as regular muffins but have the flavors of the bacon and thyme. You can have fun experimenting with other combinations too – why not try cooked sausage and rosemary?

Paleo Kale and Chives Egg Muffins

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Kale and Chives Egg Muffins

Ingredients: eggs, almond or coconut milk, kale, chives, salt, pepper.


Here is another great versatile Paleo recipe for a simple and tasty breakfast! They can be made as the recipe states, or you can line the muffin cups with prosciutto for an even better flavor. Don’t worry if the family doesn’t want kale for breakfast – you can swap it for spinach which a lot of people find easier to eat, but they could be persuaded if you chop it really small.

Paleo Egg Frittata Muffins

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Egg Frittata Muffins

Ingredients: broccoli, onions, red bell pepper, eggs, coconut milk, salt, pepper.

This is a basic Paleo recipe that can be delicious as it is, or you can use it as a base and try adding in other ingredients. For example, you could try using asparagus instead of broccoli, or add in some meat of your choice. Ingredients like bacon bits or sausage pieces would taste great in this muffin recipe. These muffins are a great way to use up leftover meat and veggies from the fridge!

Low-Carb Ham And Egg Cups (Contains Dairy)

– Ditch The Carbs

Ingredients: ham, eggs, full-fat milk or cream, spring onion, bacon, cheese, various vegetables.

This is a versatile recipe as the low-carb ham and egg cups can be made as simple or as complex as you like! Add in loads of veggies diced small for fussy eaters, or some breakfast sausage chopped through the mix for added protein. If you are adding extra chopped vegetables, this would be a great way to use up the leftover ones from the previous day. You can use onion, peppers, mushrooms or whatever you have.

Ham and Cheese Frittata Muffins (Contains Dairy)

– Low Carb Yum

Ingredients: eggs, cooked ham (Jamon de Bola), Edam cheese, red and green bell pepper, mozzarella cheese, olive oil, salt, pepper.

Here is another handy low-carb muffin recipe that will give you tasty muffins for breakfast or to enjoy as healthy snacks during the day. They are really easy to make and are portable too – a great idea for lunchboxes or to eat on the go when you are traveling. These lovely muffins can be batch-cooked and stored in the fridge, but they can also be frozen then reheated in the oven for a few minutes.

Power Breakfast Egg Meatmuffins

– The Healthy Foodie

Ingredients: lean ground beef, beef liver, almond meal, onion, garlic, capers, smoked paprika, Dijon mustard, smoked chipotle powder, Himalayan or fine sea salt, black pepper, Chinese five spice, onion powder, garlic powder, fresh parsley, eggs, bacon strips.

I often say that we eat with our eyes as well as our mouth and these little breakfast muffins look incredible! Bacon, egg and meat all rolled into one power-packed, easy-to-eat, low-carb breakfast option! These are easy to make and can be a great way to get the family eating liver without them even knowing. These can also be served cold and make a great addition to a lunchbox.

Smoked Sausage Frittata Recipe with Spinach & Mushrooms

– Ketogasm

Ingredients: spinach, ghee, mushrooms, smoked sausage, garlic, salt, pepper, eggs.

Here is another great Keto recipe for frittata which can be the perfect breakfast meal as it is filling and satisfying and can keep you going right through till lunch. This dairy and gluten-free frittata has all the flavor you would like but without the added issues from dairy that you may suffer with. If you tolerate dairy you can add in some cheese, but I find this is tasty enough without it.

Keto Freezer Meals – Beef

Slow Cooker Asian Pot Roast

– Paleo Flourish

Slow Cooker Asian Pot Roast

Ingredients: beef round roast, coconut aminos, beef broth, salt, onion powder or minced onion, garlic powder, dried or fresh cilantro leaves, star of anise, Szechuan peppercorns.

The Asian-inspired flavor in this pot roast comes from the onion and garlic and this could make a wonderful Asian meal to serve at a dinner party. This Paleo dish can be eaten straight away with vegetables, but it also tastes even better next day once the flavor has intensified, and can be cut really thin then served with a green salad, in a lettuce wrap or with some rice.

Slow Cooker Malaysian Beef Curry

– Ditch The Carbs

Ingredients: beef, coconut cream, red onion, ground cardamom, Chinese five spice, chili powder, ground cinnamon, ground coriander/cilantro, ground cumin, turmeric, cloves, leafy greens.

Slow cooking is the best way to cook some meats and it can also be so useful if you are busy during the day as it cooks while you are out. Curries like this low-carb one taste much better slow-cooked as the spices have the time to seep into the meat and the beef can be tenderized by this, so you can get away with using a cheaper cut of meat. You can add in whatever greens you have, but right at the end of cooking.

“Just Like The Real Thing” Lasagna!! (Contains Dairy)

– Peace, Love and Low Carb

“Just Like The Real Thing” Lasagna!!

Ingredients: eggs, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, ground beef, Three Cheese Marinara Sauce, whole milk ricotta cheese, onion flakes, dried oregano, dried basil, Italian seasoning.

Often people who are just getting started on the Keto journey can really miss pasta, so low-carb alternatives like this are great. Although this recipe involves a bit of time and effort, it is really worth it and there are shortcuts you can take to simplify the process. For example the gluten-free noodles can be made in advance and frozen, cutting down the prep time. This actually tastes like traditional lasagna, so why not give it a go!

Keto Lasagna With Meatza Layers (Contains Dairy)

– Low Carb Yum

Ingredients: ground lean beef, egg yolk, parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder, ground sage, ground oregano, dried thyme, chili powder, salt, ground black pepper, marinara sauce, spinach, ricotta, mozzarella cheese, olive oil, fresh parsley.

This is another useful Keto recipe for lasagna that does not contain gluten, but doesn’t use veggies as an alternative to the pasta sheets. This one uses layers of low-carb ‘meatza’ to give the traditional effect in the dish. The ‘meatza’ can be made in advance if you are going to be pushed for time, and you will find it has all the flavors you would expect from the spices used.

Creamy Beef & Cauli Rice Casserole

– It’s All About AIP

Creamy Beef & Cauli Rice Casserole

Ingredients: lean ground beef, cauliflower, ginger, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, oregano, coconut milk, baby spinach, kale.

This AIP creamy beef casserole has notes of Mediterranean cuisine because of the garlic, ginger and oregano and is a filling meal on its own, even though it is low in carbohydrates. If you want to make this meal go further you could add in more vegetables like mushrooms. This casserole freezes really well so is perfect for batch-cooking and freezing for another day.

Deconstructed Cabbage Rolls

This tasty low-carb recipe would make a great family dinner and it can be frozen and reheated for those days when you need a filling meal but don’t have time to stand at the cooker for ages. You can even make it easier if you use pre-packed, shredded cabbage instead of preparing your own.

Ingredients: eggs, fresh hamburger meat, salt, pepper, coconut flour, choice of spices (onions, jalapeño peppers, Frank’s Red Hot sauce, etc.).

If you are like me, you will always be keen to feed your family on healthy food, even when it comes to burgers, and making them yourself lets you be in charge of the ingredients. This gluten-free and low-carb recipe gives you burgers you can be proud of next time you have friends over for a barbecue, and they can be made into mini ones for kids too. Even the choice of meats and seasonings is totally yours!

Pesto Meatballs

– Savory Lotus

Ingredients: basil leaves, garlic, lemon juice, sea salt, black pepper, coconut oil or ghee, eggs, ground meat.

I had a party recently and served up these tasty little low-carb treats as finger food – gone in a few minutes! Good job I had doubled the recipe and had more in the refrigerator! They have a rich yet fresh flavor because of the basil and would also taste wonderful served in a tomato sauce. They are also adaptable and can be made using whatever ground meat you have. I used pork, but turkey or beef would work too.

Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) Beef Stew

– Nom Nom Paleo

Ingredients: beef chuck roast, Kosher salt, ghee, avocado oil or fat of choice, onions, cremini mushrooms, tomato paste, garlic, coconut aminos, Red Boat Fish Sauce, fresh thyme or dried thyme, dried bay leaf, ground black pepper, Italian parsley.

Here is a lovely Paleo comfort food recipe for a low-carb and hearty beef stew that is definitely a winter warmer! Because you are using a pressure cooker you can use cheaper cuts of meat and they will still be tender and delicious, and the stew can be made to go further by adding in whatever extra vegetables you have. You can even add in some sweet potatoes for a complete one-pot meal.

Keto Freezer Meals – Chicken

Paleo Chicken and Bacon Sausages

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Chicken and Bacon Sausages

Ingredients: chicken breasts, or ground chicken, bacon, egg, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper.

Chicken goes so well with bacon and these little Paleo patties look so good that you will want to make them again and again. Using the seasonings listed here makes the flavor of these sausages absolutely delicious and they will surely become a family favorite. One idea would be to make them into strips and serve with a dip of your choice as party food.

Herbed Chicken And Mushrooms

– Peace, Love and Low Carb

Ingredients: skin-on chicken thighs, sea salt, black pepper, dried oregano, dried thyme, dried rosemary, olive oil, cremini mushrooms, garlic, chicken stock, Dijon mustard.

This Keto-friendly, low-carb recipe uses chicken thighs instead of breast meat and this makes the dish cheaper, tastier and so delicious. The crispy skin is so good, especially once it is rubbed with the herbs and seasonings and baked in the oven. If you find the mushroom sauce is a bit thin, simply boil it to reduce it a bit and this will also intensify the flavor.

Chicken And Ginger Mini Meatloaves

– Healing Family Eats

Ingredients: carrot, lard, ground chicken, thyme leaves, mint leaves, ground ginger, sea salt.

Mini meatloaves are perfect at any time of day! They make a great protein-packed breakfast, light lunch with a fresh green salad or as a low-carb snack you can eat on the go. These taste just as good hot or cold and would be great for lunchboxes or picnics. If you are like me and don’t like mint, you could use a different herb like cilantro or parsley instead.

Spinach Cilantro Meatballs

– Savory Lotus

Ingredients: ground meat, onion, sea salt, herbamare seasoning, cumin powder, baby spinach, fresh cilantro, eggs.

Here is another great way to introduce more greens into the diet, and are even enjoyed by the younger members of the family! These meatballs make a fabulous gluten-free main served with vegetable ‘pasta’, or with a sauce of your choice for a speedy lunch. The meatballs can be frozen for another day and are a great idea for breakfast or to put in your lunchbox.

Paleo Freezer Friendly Green Curry Chicken

– I Heart Umami

Ingredients: chicken breast, full-fat coconut milk, Italian eggplant, green curry paste, frozen veggies of choice, coconut oil, lime zest, basil, garlic, shallot, ginger, cilantro, serrano green chilies, lime zest, lime juice, sea salt, fish sauce, extra virgin olive oil.

Green curries are traditionally linked with Thai cuisine and they seem to have mastered the art of the umami flavor we all love through the mix of sweet, salty and savory ingredients. This Paleo recipe gives you all the distinct Thai-inspired flavor but is dairy-free and low in carbohydrates. Just remember to fry off the curry paste for a couple of minutes before adding the meat to eliminate the harsh taste of the spices.

Keto Butter Chicken (Contains Dairy)

– Keto Connect

Ingredients: chicken breast, heavy whipping cream, butter, tomato paste, garlic, onion, turmeric, ground ginger, pink salt, chili powder, cinnamon.

Butter chicken is quite often the curry dish that novices use to get them used to Indian food as it is creamy but not too spicy. So here is the perfect Keto curry the whole family can enjoy! Creamy sauces are notoriously difficult to store in the freezer, but this one really works – just give it a good stir once it is defrosted to remix the ingredients and it will taste just as good.

Chicken Pepper Bacon Bites

– Health, Home, & Happiness

Ingredients: boneless chicken thighs, Anaheim chilies or (sweet peppers for kids), bacon.

It can sometimes be a bit of a challenge to find new and different food to provide for parties or for easy-eating snacks, so this is where this wonderful low-carb chicken poppers recipe can come to the rescue! The bites are colorful and look and smell so good they are going to be a winner at your next get-together. These can even be served individually on cocktail sticks with a low-carb dip of choice.

Keto Mini Chicken Pot Pies (Contains Dairy)

– Ruled Me

Ingredients: chicken breast, butter, onion, celery stacks, carrot, dried thyme leaves, white wine vinegar, chicken stock, heavy cream, green peas, paprika, pepper, almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, sea salt, eggs, mozzarella cheese.

Just the look of these amazing Keto mini pies makes your mouth water! They are packed with flavor and can be easily portable to take to work.

These pies freeze well, so batch-cook and you will have a tasty meal ready in minutes.

Slow Cooker Crack Chicken (Contains Dairy)

This lovely recipe for pulled chicken in a creamy dressing would be great for a tasty family lunch, served with crispy bacon bits and chopped chives. It tastes great warm or cold, so you can eat it with a salad, or as a filling for a baked sweet potato. To keep things low-carb, serve this on a Keto or Paleo-friendly ‘bun’ or just heap it onto some lettuce leaves to eat as a wrap.

Keto Freezer Meals – Soups & Chilis

Ingredients: cauliflower florets, ham stock or chicken broth, water, garlic powder, onion powder, ham, apple cider vinegar, fresh thyme leaves, butter (or ghee, bacon fat, or coconut oil), kosher salt, ground black pepper.

One of the best ways to get a beautiful broth as a base for soups and stews is to boil up a ham bone. If you boil the bone for a long time, the resulting broth gels when cooled and is packed with flavor. This creamy and delicious low-carb soup is a definite ‘go to’ for cold days when you crave something homemade, and it freezes well so is suitable for batch-cooking.

Cabbage Soup

– Ketogasm

Ingredients: ground beef, onion, garlic, ground cumin, cabbage, bouillon cubes, Rotel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, water, salt, pepper.

Sometimes you will find that simple ingredients like cabbage can give you a really tasty and filling meal like the soup in this Keto recipe. It is both gluten and dairy-free but is a hearty plateful to warm you on the coldest day. If you prefer a bit of spice in your soup you could use spicy sausage instead of the ground beef. It also tastes great made with ground turkey and a little sage.

Keto Salmon Curry

– Keto Summit

Keto Salmon Curry

Ingredients: onion, green beans, curry powder, garlic powder, coconut cream, bone broth, raw salmon, coconut oil, salt, pepper, basil.

This is a quick and easy Keto curry recipe as the fish takes only a few minutes to cook, so it would be perfect for a chilly evening when you don’t have time to spend too long cooking. The salmon is rich in healthy fats and if you don’t have green beans then you could use spinach or asparagus or even some broccoli florets to give you a warming and satisfying meal.

Asian Keto Miso Soup (Topped with Shrimp)

– Keto Summit

Asian Keto Miso Soup (Topped with Shrimp)

Ingredients: shirataki noodles, chicken broth or bone broth, tahini sauce, gluten-free tamari sauce or coconut aminos, shrimp, sesame oil, lemon juice, green onions, spinach.

Miso can contain some grains, so if you like the flavor but want to go grain-free, this delicious Keto recipe will let you enjoy miso soup but without the miso! The combination of tahini and tamari sauce gives a wonderful Asian-inspired flavor to this soup and you can add in some seafood or meat for added protein. Shrimp or shredded chicken work really well in this recipe.

Paleo Chicken Noodle Soup

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Chicken Noodle Soup

Ingredients: chicken broth, chicken breast, avocado oil, celery, green onion, cilantro, zucchini, salt.

Chicken noodle soup is a favorite with so many of us, children included! This is a perfect Paleo recipe to encourage the kids to eat more veggies – they don’t even think of the ‘noodles’ as vegetables! You can use a potato peeler to create thin strips, or treat yourself to a spiralizer and have fun making this. You will also find this is easy to eat if you are recovering from an illness and need a bit of a boost.

Keto Chili Recipe

– Keto Summit

Keto Chili Recipe

Ingredients: avocado oil, onion, bell peppers, white button mushrooms, ground beef, cayenne pepper, cumin powder, ground coriander, diced tomatoes, beef broth, garlic, salt, ground black pepper, parsley.

Keto chili recipes can give you real comfort food but without adding too many carbs. It is a delicious family meal that is quite easy to make, even in a slow cooker. In Europe chili is normally served with rice and you could serve cauliflower rice with this, but I prefer to lay some toppings on the table and let everyone choose their own favorites. If you like things a bit hotter, ramp up the cayenne!

Keto Slow Cooker Brisket Chili

– Keto Summit

Keto Slow Cooker Brisket Chili

Ingredients: beef brisket (deboned), olive oil, onion, garlic, mushrooms, green bell pepper, ground cumin, chili powder, beef stock, diced tomatoes, salt, ground black pepper, flat leaf parsley.

If you are looking for an impressive dish to serve to friends, I can recommend this brisket chili recipe as it is hearty, delicious and looks so rich it is bound to impress! Tasting this dish, you will hardly believe it is Paleo and I have often had compliments from non-Paleo friends who were bowled over by how tasty it is. I like to serve this rich and flavorful chili over cauliflower rice.

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

– The Real Food Dietitians

Ingredients: chicken breasts or thighs, ghee or avocado oil, onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, garlic. ground cumin, dried oregano, chili powder, sea salt, black pepper, chicken broth (or homemade bone broth), full-fat coconut milk, lime juice, fresh cilantro.

Chicken chili can be just as good as beef-based recipes, and can easily become a family favorite. It is not as hot as some, although you can spice it up by adding more jalapenos or leaving in the seeds. This is an ideal recipe if you are trying to cut down on red meat, yet still want that warming chili satisfaction! This recipe also works out quite a bit cheaper than ones with steak, so is a great idea if you are working to a tight budget.

Bacon Cheeseburger Soup (Contains Dairy)

– Ruled Me

Ingredients: bacon, ground beef, butter, beef broth, garlic powder, onion powder, brown mustard, kosher salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, cumin, chili powder, tomato paste, dill pickle, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, heavy cream.

Soups like this amazing Keto one can be eaten as a satisfying lunch or a warming dinner, as it is packed with flavor, protein and goodness and is definitely a wholesome dish. You have all the spices and seasonings, giving the meat a delicious taste, then you have a mix of textures from the cream cheese and bacon. This soup freezes well so you can make a large batch and store it for later.
