When it comes to meal planning, easy freezer meals are a lifesaver and so nice to have on hand. Great for busy days, days you’re exhausted, and anytime in between!
Tell me if this sounds familiar: you come home from being gone all day at work or it’s the end of a long day at home with the kids. You realize you planned nothing for dinner but your kid has started saying, “my pleasure” when you thank him for doing something so you’re thinking that you might be spending too much time in the Chick fil’ A drive-thru line. You scramble to find something to make at home, but your pantry and fridge and freezer all fail you.
If this is you, you have come to the right place!! I am going to teach you how to make ordinary meals here on my website into extraordinary freezer meals. So many of them freeze amazingly well. Let’s jump in!
Easy Freezer Crockpot Meals
I LOVE cooking with my crockpot. I also love popping an easy freezer crockpot meal in at the beginning of the day and having it ready when I get home!
All of these recipes are written for the crockpot. Turning them into freezer meals couldn’t be easier. Simply combine all the ingredients in a freezer container or a gallon sized ziplock bag and set them upright on a cookie sheet.
Normally, I like to freeze bags laying flat so they stack well in the fridge, but freezing them upright makes it easy to cut the bag off and stick the frozen meal straight into the slow cooker.
What meals can I make to freeze?
In addition to crockpot freezer meals, there are tons of other options! The following recipes are some of my very favorites to pop into the freezer before baking. Often, I’ll make double a recipe so I can have an extra meal to freeze.
