This delicious Shrimp & Broccoli Bake sounds fancy and complicated, but comes together in less than 30 minutes using frozen shrimp (and only one dish!)  Not quite a freezer meal, it's the perfect last-minute dinner solution for a busy night!

 

If you read this blog regularly, you already know that I am a little obsessed with “cheater” freezer cooking. Not only are these simple meals quick & easy to throw together, they save us a ton of money on groceries (and especially on eating out.)  Better yet, they make our sometimes hectic weekdays SO much simpler!

DIG DEEPER


Meal planning eliminates dinnertime stress and overspending. Rather than navigating weeknight meals without a plan, go in with a plan and dinner is served. Simple!

Even so, every now and then it’s fun to throw in something a little new and different into the mix. Thus, so while this yummy–and super simple–Shrimp and Broccoli bake is not a TRUE freezer recipe, it does call for frozen shrimp, which is usually more economical than fresh. The rest of this recipe comes together so quickly and with just a few ingredients.
