Daily Recipe Find – 10 Tasty “freezer dump” Crock Pot Recipes

Having an easy dinner ready to go into the crock pot is a great thing, especially if it is dump and go ready.  Sadly as much as I say how good this idea is I haven’t done this yet.  The most I have done is a crock pot full of chicken, then I shredded it and froze it.  These recipes are even easier because the prep work is done before freezing.    It will take some time chopping and putting the ingredients together, although looking through the recipes, there are several common ingredients.

It can also be intimidating or not budget friendly to buy enough food for many different meals all in one grocery trip.  These recipes are helpful using canned goods, fresh veggies, and meats.  So you could easily spread out the ingredients list into different shopping trips, then put them all together when ready.  Also, since you will be freezing it anyway as you buy meats slice, prep and freeze to be ready to be put into the big bag for the whole meal.

Recipe Here:  10 Tasty “freezer dump” recipes for the crock pot

I did a quick list of the main items on these ten recipes.  I am really going to try to make ahead a variety of different meals to get out of the same old…same old meals.  I am putting the list on a recipe box to make grocery shopping easier for me.  Hopefully it will help you too.  I didn’t include spices, or final ingredients of stock, noodles ect. so please refer to the recipe link above for full info.   Enjoy!
