Mostly Made Meals: Get Dinner on the Table with Pre-Made Fillings Delivered to Your Door

When you think about making weeknight dinners, what part always seems to take the longest? If you think prepping ingredients is the most time-consuming part of getting dinner on the table, you’re not alone. There’s a reason 30-minute meals are popular and that’s because, with prep time, they’re finished in just a half hour.

Sometimes, though, to cut corners, we often end up using canned ingredients. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that and a big part of budget-friendly, wholesome dinners is about making the most of what you can, what if you had the option of using fresh ingredients that were already prepped?

Mostly Made is a company that specializes in pre-made fillings so that meal assembly, for dinner in particular, is a snap.

The fillings are delivered frozen in a boil-in-a-bag sleeve for easy defrosting. The packages will arrive in three days from a shipping fulfillment service that specializes in perishable food.

Enchilada Filling and Lasagna Filling are the first two types to be introduced by Mostly Made. They currently fulfilled their Kickstarter campaign and will soon begin shipping pre-orders.

There’s no limit to what you can do with the fillings, either.

The Enchilada filling includes chicken and black beans, braised in tomatoes, cilantro, chipotle, and a pound of fresh vegetables (bell pepper, onions, tomato, zucchini, poblano pepper, cilantro, quinoa, and garlic).

Each pack is 24 ounces and serves four to five people. Each case of five fillings/dinners is $79.95.

For the Enchilada filling, you could stuff peppers, fill tortillas for burritos, create enchiladas, and top baked potatoes.

If you love a Chipotle chicken burrito bowl, simply pair this filling with rice for a filling and delicious dinner.

The Lasagna filling includes Italian sausage, crushed tomatoes, basil, and a pound of fresh vegetables (mushrooms, bell pepper, onions, zucchini, quinoa, and garlic).

Each pack is, again, 24 ounces and serves five to six people. The case of five, for five dinners is $79.95.

You could make lasagna with the filling, or you could top a pizza, make calzones, stuff peppers, make a pasta, or create Italian burritos.

Creator Jillian McGary designed Mostly Made meals after her sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer.

She realized that it wasn’t the actual cooking that took time, but the prep work required to make dinners, especially dinners in bulk.

Soon, she realized that casseroles are bulky in freezers and rarely can be stored in a compact way. So she started making fillings to bring instead and found more creativity with how they can be used to suit a certain craving on any given weeknight.

Mostly Made already made it through the difficult part of funding their Kickstarter, and now they’re ready to start taking your orders. I know I’ll be ordering some!
