Here are 31 crockpot freezer recipes that don’t require any cooking ahead of time.  Simply combine the ingredients and freeze!

31 Crockpot Freezer RecipesThese recipes take “easy” to a whole new level.  Since none of the ingredients need to be cooked ahead of time, they can be prepped very quickly.  I’ve settled into a routine where I spend 45 minutes assembling meals on the weekend, and that’s all the cooking that I need to do for the week.

This method of meal prep saves me time, money, and the headache of trying to figure out what to make for dinner every night.

Plus, since these meals cook for the very first time in my crockpot, they don’t taste like leftovers at all.  Wahoo!

25 Crockpot Freezer Recipes

If you’re nervous about mixing raw meat and vegetables, don’t be.  I did a lot of research when I was writing my No Cook Freezer Meals cookbook and, according to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, freezing to 0 °F inactivates any microbes present in food (such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds).  That means freezing raw meat with vegetables, sauces, and spices is perfectly safe. (You can find more info on food safety here.)

Here are 31 crockpot freezer recipes that I’ve tried myself.  They’re all absolutely delicious, nutritious, and easy to make.

If the recipe doesn’t contain freezer directions, simply combine all of the ingredients in a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag, remove as much air as possible, and freeze for up to three months.  (I used to brown my ground meat before freezing, but now I even freeze those meals raw.)

When you’re ready to eat, thaw the bag in your refrigerator overnight or in a bowl of cold water.  Cook according to the recipes instructions and add 1-2 hours if the meal isn’t totally thawed.  Enjoy!

These look delicious! One question: Do you find that any of the raw meats make the final dish too greasy?

If it isn’t floating then it has locked up with other fat in the recipe and isn’t left loose to form on the top of the soup but using 80% burger raw in a recipe still results in 20% of the weight of beef you started with as pure fat. You would be far healthier to brown and drain it before hand. If you are freezing several meals at once just cook it all at once and then separate it to the individual meals.

It’s the type of animal fat that matters or, more importantly, how the animal was raised and what it ate. We need healthy animal fat in our diet to be healthy. However, it’s imperative that the animal be raised organically AND free range and grass fed. No pesticide or chemically fertilized laden grains! Eating the fat of animals fed food that isn’t their intended-by-nature diet is very unhealthy.

I found you through moneysavingmom. I too would LOVE to see some vegetarian freezer meals. I only cook meat once or twice per week, for both health and budget reasons. Thanks for the great list, though!

If you can’t afford to purchase the books, check them out from your local library. They’re FREE and if a recipe really suits you, you can make a photocopy of it or write it down.
