We'd all love to say we can cook 5-star meals every day — or, let's be real, have them cooked for us — but the convenience of the occasional frozen meal shouldn't be totally overlooked.
So, here's a list of frozen dinners you can find at major supermarkets, ranked from worst to best:
SOME DISCLAIMERS BEFORE YOU START:
-These are meals from national brands that you can find at most major supermarkets. That means no Trader Joe's frozen foods are on here, since they have their own in-store brand.
-I know some of these placements won't be exactly surprising, but I tried to get a variety of brands so that the rankings would be as fair and unbiased as possible.
-Yes, I did try every single one of these meals myself, so these rankings are technically based on my opinion. I was as objective as possible.
-These meals were, for the most part, prepared in the microwave. I know it's generally agreed upon that preparing frozen meals in the oven yields better results. HOWEVER, given that the whole point of a frozen meal is ease and simplicity, I figured using a microwave would be more in line with the goals of this post.
