Having ready-to-eat frozen food is a great idea for many reasons. Firstly, you save time, and you know time is money, ain’t it? Also, saves the day when you don’t feel like cooking. Who hasn’t experienced that feeling of coming home after a long day at work and not having the energy to cook a full meal? For those days, Costco has a wide range of options.
With frozen foods, we can simply take what we need from the freezer and have a meal ready in a few minutes. Just like that: from the fridge to the dish. Let’s explore the wide variety of delicious options at Costco. From pizzas and lasagna to veggie dishes and snacks, there’s something to suit every taste.
Costumer-favorite Costco bestseller frozen staples
In the frozen section of Costco, an unexpected product is the absolute bestseller. One would think that it is some chicken product, or a frozen meat, but no: it is the MorningStar Farms veggie breakfast (meatless) sausage patties. These little wonders are like a version of Impossible Burger or Beyond Meat, but without trying to be a carbon copy of meat. The box makes it crystal clear that these are veggie patties, and they’re not out to trick anyone into thinking they’re chowing down on the real deal.
Now, there’s an intriguing part: if you buy it in a larger box, it doesn’t spill the beans on what exactly goes into these patties or how they’re made. If you take a gander at the image shown at Costco’s website, that’s pretty much all the box tells you. But, don’t worry: they’re totally natural and made with fresh ingredients.
That being said, MorningStar Farms does highlight some tempting advantages of these veggie sausage patties over their pork counterparts. They boast a whopping 79% less fat than cooked pork sausage, pack in 9 grams of protein, and each patty rings in at a mere 80 calories. These patties are great not just for the breakfast, but you can make some hamburgers for your lunch, or even for kids parties. They are actually versatile, and Costco fans are buying them like pancakes.
Back to the Costco meat aisle: another bestseller that costumers love
Let’s take a detour to the frozen meat aisle to explore this other product, which is the second bestseller these days in the frozen section of Costco. If you don’t feel like a veggie, then we have another option that, in the same way, is quite healthy. The Diamond Valley Halal ground beef is 85% lean and 15% less fat compared to other similar items.
The cattle are raised without added hormones, and totally grass-fed, which makes this meat one of the best options in the market right now. Regarding the value, it’s priced at $6.25 per pound, amazing option to stock up and have it always ready for your meals.
The Tyson panko breaded chicken breast tenderloins is the bonus track in your playlist of ready-to-eat frozen foods’ repertoire. They’re made with 100% natural chicken whole pieces, no shredded or ground meat. The animals are grown antibiotics-free and all the ingredients are natural. Every portion offers 20 grams of protein, which makes them also nutritious. Throw them in an oven tin, sprinkle some olive oil, and make them even more healthy for your lunches or dinners.
