Hawaiian haystacks are a family favorite. Anytime you get to choose your own toppings dinner is just more fun!

Most of the time when I am batch cooking or stocking my freezer I try to stick to only batch cooking one item per meal. By using shredded chicken that we cooked on day 5. We can focus on batch cooking rice.

I have an entire post about batch cooking rice here. I usually do enough for 12 servings in my instant pot. For my family of 4 that will provide rice for 3 meals. Divide the rice in thirds and spoon 2 sections into 2 ziplock bags. Lay flat and put in freezer.
