10 Crockpot Freezer Meals in 2 Hours is a simple plan and you will have 10 slow cooker dinner recipes that will be ready to throw in your crockpot when you are done. It took me only 2 hours from starting the process to cleaning up my whole kitchen. I also spent only $115 at the store for the ingredients! I did not have to buy many of the spices but everything else I did have to purchase. I love to make freezer meals to help save me time in prepping and preparing dinners for my family. This is the perfect plan for fall or winter because all of the recipes are perfect on cold days.
My three boys are constantly on the go with school and after school activities. My oldest son has Weight Lifting and Conditioning after school four days a week for football. I have to pick him up at the local high school at 5pm and that is when I am usually getting started in the kitchen to make dinner. So I decided to make freezer meals that sounded good and were healthy for my family. I ended up with the following 10 freezer meals listed below. They are all naturally gluten free when you select gluten free ingredients.

10 Crockpot Freezer Meals in 2 Hours:
By choosing these meals I did not have to cook most of the meat or poultry in these freezer meal recipes with the exception of two recipes. That is a huge time saver when prepping freezer meals! I made a list of what I needed for each recipe. Next I went to my kitchen and pulled out what I already had for each recipe. Then I made a shopping list of what I needed to get at the store. I had most of the spices and meat in my kitchen. So when I went to the store I mostly had to buy fruit, vegetables and freezer ziploc bags. When I got home I arranged on the ingredients on my table. Next I got out my cutting boards and knifes. Then I put my apron on and started with labeling the ziploc bags first. I had each recipe pulled up on my laptop and would write the instructions on the bag along with the date.
Next I started with browning the meat for Crockpot Taco Recipe and Crockpot Cheeseburger Soup. Once that was done I set it to the side to cool off. Next I followed step by step directions from the first recipe and filled the bag. I would then move on to the next one. I just followed each recipe and then I laid the crockpot freezer meals flat in the freezer with the exception of the Crockpot Cheeseburger Soup I stood the bag up. That week when I wanted to make them I would pull them out the night before and let thaw in the fridge overnight except for the Crockpot Ham and Beans. I put it in the slow cooker still frozen and cooked it, but you can do it either way.
Preparing these 10 Freezer Meals in advance saved me so much time for the week and we had wonderful family dinner meals every night. There was no fuss in trying to get homework done and dinner on the table. This is perfect for expecting mothers or if you are preparing for surgery. It really helps busy working Moms stay ahead of the game by prepping in advance and using your slow cooker to do the work for you. By using this plan your menu planning woes are over! Another great plan is this 20 Freezer Meals in 4 Hours Plan (with printable shopping list).
Be sure to invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker. I spent the majority of money on buying fresh produce. A great way to save money is to purchase your meat in bulk from ZayconFresh. I LOVE their chicken!
