Hamburger Quick Freezer Storage

I'm sad to say around my house we eat more ground beef than we should. It is just so versatile. It is one of those staples that I always have on hand to throw together a quick easy meal.

I buy it in the large family packs but we never eat that much during one meal. My husband actually turned me on to this ideal way of storing it in the freezer. 

All you need are a couple of plates and some freezer storage bags. I actually just use sandwich bags for the individual patties and then store about 6 patties in a gallon size freezer bag.

We make 1/4 lb patties. I can grab as many as I need for burgers or it is easy to grab what you need for a recipe.

Step 1
Measure meat into about a 1/4 lb and form a ball. You don't need to be real precise with this.

Step 2
Place each ball in a separate sandwich size zipper bag. Do not seal the bag and make sure the ball is centered in the bag.

Step 3
Place one bag with meat on plate A. Position plate B on top of bag, as if you were stacking the plates. The bag with the meat will be between the 2 plates.

Step 4 
Smash the plates together until the patty is the desired thickness. After you do this a few times this will become a quick process. Remove the top plate and zip the bag closed.

Step 5
Add the patties inside the sandwich bags to a gallon size freezer bag and put them in the freezer.
