Spinach - I add frozen spinach to EVERTHING! From scrambled eggs to soups to mac & cheese....My boyfriend is never surprised to come home and find something green cooking that isnt nromally green.

For the rest...I'd add them all to soups, stir fries, casseroles, chicken/veggie pot pie, shepherd's pie. Or just steam them to serve on their own with some salt, pepper and garlic powder.

A good one to get is cubed butternut squash. I love it but rarely have the patience to peel, cut and cook it on my own. Once I steam the frozen, I mash it with a little butter and maple syrup. Mmmm.

If you like turkey burgers, a good idea would be to add about a cup or two of chopped spinach (thawed and squeezed dry) to your turkey mixture. It adds a little moisture to the lean turkey breast.

You could just steam the add some interesting spices and/or cheese.

Stir-frys and casseroles and breafast scrambles would work well, too, I think.

frittata is a great use for this.

Whisk eggs with some seasoning you like, fry off some onions until soft, add the veg, heat though, put into an oven proof dish, pour over the eggs, if you want, add grated cheese to the top and then cook until the egg is set, you dont want to make it too deep else the edge will be overdone before the middle cooks.

Grocery store had a $1 per bag sale on various frozen veggies, so we stocked up! My question - what is your favorite way to prepare frozen veggies? Just steamed or boiled can be so, well, boring. We have a freezer full of green beans, spinach, broccoli, baby carrots, mixed blends, peas, etc.
