Freezer cooking and the slow cooker are a match made in dinnertime heaven!

Fall is the perfect time of year to come home to the smell of a delicious warm meal waiting for you in the Crock Pot. 

We have chosen some of our best freezer to slow cooker recipes to celebrate Crocktoberfest with you this year.

Participating in Crocktoberfest is a great way to get out of your cooking rut. Hopefully, you’ll feel inspired to try some new-to-you recipes and find new favourites.

For the month of October, we are offering our Slow Cooker Bundle at more than 50% off! Included are tried and true recipes, shopping lists, prep lists, and even printable labels with your cooking instructions.

To make these meals even easier, we recommend using Crock Pot liners especially with recipes that tend to stick to the sides of your slow cooker. They make cleanup a breeze!

What is Crocktoberfest?

Crocktoberfest is 31 days of amazing slow cooker recipes. And in our particular case, it’s 31 days of amazing freezer to crock pot recipes!

These are several ways you can participate in this freezer to slow cooker challenge:

  • Follow along and make that day’s meal straight into your Crock Pot. Set it and forget it. Enjoy mouthwatering dinners.
  • Double each recipe. Put one directly into the slow cooker and the other into a freezer bag and freeze. This way, you can take next month off of cooking altogether!
  • Make one or two week’s worth of the meals in a few hours, freeze, and pop into the Crock Pot on the days you need them.
