    Default Freezing deli meat?

    Does anyone know if you can freeze pre-sliced sandwich meats with the idea of defrosting it to eat with a salad or in a sandwich?

    I'm a killer for forgetting about it and it going off before I eat it!

    Oooo I wouldn't.
    That meat sits in the deli window all day long.
    You never know what's breeding in there.

    I'm not one for pre sliced deli meats anyway, so I wouldn't be freezing any of it.

    You can buy some in those vac pacs at the supermarket or the larger fruit shops.
    They normally only have a few slices it them anyway.

    I don't see why not (unless you were PG, of course!).

    But I'd imagine that freezing it and then defrosting it to eat at a later date would keep it fresher than sitting it in the fridge for a few days before eating it. ??

    Or you could just chop it up and use it in a pasta bake for dinner!

    I do it all the time. I know they do it with the same meats for pizzas. I buy it and freeze it when I do Pizza. That is when I make pizza, I buy the stuff ready for next time and put it in the freezer. I can defrost it at room temp in a couple of hours and have pizza dinner whenever i feel like it.

    i do sometimes buy bulk (rolls to slice myself eg) and slice then freeze in portions.

    Yep, I do it all the time for making pizzas here too. I buy in bulk and chop it into portions and then freeze them. Ham, salami, turkey. I take them out around lunch time if I want to use them at dinner, make the pizzas and all is good. Never had a problem. And been doing it the whole time I've been PG.

    Ya, we do it all the time here, I buy smaller amounts, enough for 2 days of school lunches, so it never has a chance to go off!!

    It's fine to do it with.

    I always buy a lot of meat, and a loaf of bread, and make many sandwiches to freeze for DD's school lunches. They thaw fine.

    Another one here who thinks its fine. I freeze the meat in the sandwiches for DH lunches at work and then just pull them out of the freezer the night before and add some salad to it then put it in the fridge overnight and they are fie for work the next day
