One of the things we love most aboutTrader Joesother than being able to grocery shopstill afford to pay rentis that it has everything we need, from apples to zaatar chvre. The jackpot of all departments, though, is the freezer aisle, stocked withfrozen itemsthat put those 90s TV dinners to shame. Plus, with a few quick additions from the dairy or produce section, you can take any item from frozen to finished dish in no time.

Here are seven frozen foods from Trader Joes we recommend having on hand when from scratch just isnt in the cards.

Whether youre cooking for a crowd or want to make a quick dinner after work, these frozen turkey burgers are a great option. Remember: The trick to making a delicious turkey burger is the toppings, so pile on the fresh vegetables or spice it up withSriracha mayo.

This gluten-free crust is the best thing to happen to pizza since pepperoni. Its a blank canvas for whatever toppings you desire, whether they bemeatorveggies. This item is known to sell out fast, so you might want to grab two at a time.

Not only does this healthy rice substitute cook in four minutes, you can top it with pretty much anything. Saut up some fresh vegetables and toss it with soy sauce and sesame oil to makefried cauliflower rice.

Filled with shrimp, white cabbage, green onion, ginger and garlic, these gyoza are bite-size flavor bombs. Panfry them to get them nice and crispy, and then serve them with your favorite soy ordipping sauce.

Same boring bowl of cereal got you down? Take back breakfast by popping a few of these waffles into the toaster oven. Serve with butter and maple syrup, or top with fresh strawberries and blueberries.

Calling all vegetarians. If youre tired of black bean or tofu burgers, these vegetable-packed patties are the way to go. Heat them on the stovetop or in the oven and serve on a fresh burger bun, in a salad or alongside roast vegetables.

Considering an average take-out order of Chinese food probably costs around $10 to $20, this whole bag of orange chicken is a steal at just $5. Plus, leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Serve it over rice with your favorite vegetables.
