The only thing that can make life in the kitchen easier than having freezer meals on hand is having those meals be able to go from the freezer to the crock pot. These 101 crockpot freezer meals will make getting supper on the table a piece of cake.
101 Crockpot Freezer Meals:
I know, I know…101 is a lot of recipes! But I love the convenience of freezer meals and the only thing that makes supper easier than having them made ahead and ready in the freezer is being able to plop them in the slow cooker and have them ready when you get home.
I wanted to include a lot of recipes all in one list so that you would have a variety to choose from. You can choose which recipes to make based on cooking times or based on the ingredients that you know your family will love.

Can I put a freezer meal straight into the crock pot?
A freezer meal can go directly in the slow cooker from the freezer, however, there are a few things to consider.
Most recipes are designed to be thawed first so the cooking instructions are made accordingly. You will need to adjust cooking times if you put the meal in while fully frozen, particularly if there is raw meat involved to ensure cooking safety.
If your meals are frozen in square or rectangular bags or containers, they won’t fit in the crockpot while fully frozen. You can solve this problem very easily by placing the bag or container in a sink or room temperature water for 20 minutes. This will thaw the contents and allow you to dump them into the slow cooker.
If you are looking for a simple way to make freezer to crock pot meals, our Slow Cooker Freezer Meal Plans include prep lists, printable shopping lists, recipes, and printable labels. They take the guesswork out of slow cooker freezer meals.
