10 Easy-Peasy Crock-Pot Freezer Meals


10 Easy-Peasy Crock-Pot Freezer Meals | the good stuff

It’s a weekday night and you’re pulled in so many directions that thinking about dinner could push you over the edge. Setting aside some time to plan and prepare meals to stash away in your freezer not only saves sanity, but cuts grocery costs drastically, too.

Invest in some inexpensive slow cooker liners for recipes that include sugary ingredients (honey, barbecue sauce, etc.) and you’ll also save time and energy on cleanup. While many of these easy Crock-Pot freezer meals include delicious sauces that pair well with pasta or rice, they can create quite a mess in your slow cooker.

If you’re looking for Crock Pot liners or just a slow cooker in general, be sure to grab an Amazon coupon, a Bed Bath & Beyond promo code, or a Macy’s coupon to save!

To complete these Crock-Pot freezer meals without any additional kitchen prep, keep veggies and rice in your freezer that can be steamed quickly in your microwave. For a delectable finishing touch, bake up some buttery crescent rolls or biscuits and your meal is complete.
