How to make 15 Crockpot Freezer Meals in 2 Hours is simple and you will have 15 dinner recipes that will be ready to throw in your crockpot. It took me only 2 hours from starting the process to cleaning up my whole kitchen. I love to make freezer meals to help save me time in prepping and preparing dinners for my family.
My three boys are constantly on the go with school and after school activities. My oldest son has high school football every day of the week except Sunday. I have to pick him up at the local high school at 6pm and that is when I am usually when dinner is being put on the table. So I decided to to some research and find freezer meals that sounded good for my family. I ended up picking out the following freezer meals listed below.
15 Freezer Meals in 2 Hours:
By choosing these meals I did not have to cook any of the meat or poultry in these freezer meal 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. Got out my cutting boards and knifes. Put my apron on and started with labeling the ziploc bags first. I had each recipe pulled up on laptop and would write the instructions on the bag along with the date. I spent $100 on my groceries but if you don't have the spices and meat I would think you would spend $150+ depending on if you find them on sale. It does depend on the prices you are paying for groceries of course which varies depending on where you live.
Next I started with a recipe and followed step by step the directions from the 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. 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 Easy Crockpot Meatloaf. I put it in the slow cooker still frozen and cooked it, but you can do it either way.
