Am I late to the party or what? Do you already make Freezer Meals for the Crock Pot or Instant Pot?
I recently discovered them and…be still my heart…I got so excited! I love to cook – just not every day. And when I get busy or just forget to plan ahead I end up eating dumb stuff. You too?
Since I don't let any grass grow under my feet…I bought my bags and my stands. I found recipes that I thought I would like…and then modified them to suit me. I thought you might like the recipes too 🙂 Scroll to the bottom to grab them – they will download into your downloads folder
What do you need to do to make Crock Pot Freezer Meals?
Try and find recipes that have similar ingredients. That way you aren't chopping a bunch of different things
Gather all your ingredients and chop away
Add all the ingredients except for the last minute things
Make 2 at a time of your fave recipes
Label your bags with the name and the Crock Pot Instructions
You can use Ziploc bags – I just hate so much disposable stuff…so I bought the ones that I can reuse. I LOVE them. So sturdy and the ‘zipper' closes really tight. No leaks!
The bags are really nice. They ‘clip' into the stands and stay upright. Which makes dumping in your ingredients really easy. Plus, you aren't touching the bag with those chicken coated fingers!
Label using a glass paint pen
I use a Glass Paint Pen for the labeling. It does come off with a bit of scrubbing and soap and water. Not sure I love writing on the bags but a paper label won't work either. Have any other suggestions?
