I’ve made almost all of these recipes before and I can tell you that they’re delicious. I love that there’s so much variety and not the standard “crockpot pot roast” recipe. If you’d like to see photos of the meals when they’re done cooking, I’m including some at the bottom of this post.
(I use these baggy clips to hold my bags while filling.)
Here’s what I love about these 10 slow cooker freezer meals:
- They include tons of fresh veggies and healthy ingredients.
- I was able to prep a bunch at once and save time and money.
- They’ll last in a standard freezer for at least three months.
Oh yeah, and they’re delicious!
Since all of these meals can be frozen without any cooking ahead of time, they were very quick and easy to prep. I was able to make all 10 in 2.5 hours and clean-up my kitchen. That’s pretty fast for 10 dinners!
I made this batch of freezer meals for one of my friends, so I used the label template from my CROCK’D eBook to include the cooking instructions for each meal. My friend picked the recipes and ordered the groceries online and then I prepped the meals. It was a lot of fun.
Here’s what some of the meals will look like when cooked:
If you’re brand-new to slow cooker freezer meals, here’s how I prep them:
- I do all of my grocery shopping ahead of time.
- I print my recipes and fill out my freezer labels.
- I start with the fresh veggies and peel, chop, and add them to their bags.
- Then, I focus on one bag at a time and add their spices, sauces, and other ingredients.
- Lastly, I add the meat to each bag, remove as much air as possible, and seal it.
It’s easy, I promise.
I’ve been attempting to purchase the cookbook bundle but it keeps saying my cards are invalid. Is there a problem with the PayPal portion of the site?
Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear about that. It must be so frustrating. I’m still received orders so I believe that PayPal is working as normal.
Hi there! After reading many of your freezer meal posts, I am really looking forward to trying this method out. Because of hubby’s changing work schedule, it will be good to have something that can just be thrown in the slow cooker and be ready when he gets home at 9 or 10 at night. Eating that late is bad enough, but to get home and then have to wait longer for cooking time… yuck. I just have one question… well, 2. Do the labels that you use actually stay stuck on the freezer bags for the entire 3 months… Read more »
Hi Chris! I’ve never had an issue with my labels coming off, regardless of whether they’re taped on or stickers. Hope you and your husband enjoy the meals!
I noticed you use regular freezer bags. I have tried every type of vacuum system available and the super inexpensive ZipLoc hand pump is my favorite! I label, fill and vacuum and it really helps to keep freezer burn deterred. Have you tried any vacuum systems?
No, but I would love to. Thanks for the recommendation!
I would love to receive these recipes in my email!!!
