Make-Ahead Macaroni and Cheese with Ham Balls TV Dinner
Instead of heating up a store-bought TV dinner, assemble these make-ahead dinners of mac and cheese, ham balls, and peas. The ready-made frozen meals can stay on ice for up to four months so you can just heat and eat!
If you prefer, assemble dinners in six 2- or 3-compartment microwave-safe storage containers; seal and freeze for up to 4 months. To serve, remove lids from a frozen dinner and cover with vented plastic wrap or a paper towel. Microwave on defrost setting for 8 minutes, then on 100% power (high) for 4 to 6 minutes or until heated through, stirring rice and cauliflower once.You can also remove a frozen dinner from the foil pan and place on a microwave-safe plate. Cover with vented plastic wrap or a paper towel and microwave as directed.
Or use sharp fontina cheese for more pronounced flavor.
