Freezer to Crockpot Sausage and Peppers!


This may not be as kid friendly as some of the other meals unless of course, your kids love spicy (ours do!).  This is a super easy freezer meal and healthy. The most time consuming part is chopping all the peppers and onions, but when you are making several freezer meals, just chop all your vegetables at one.  Freezer meals are just so handy for busy families.  No more trying to figure out what to fix for dinner, because the meals are already prepared. Takes away all the fuss and hassle.

Freezer to Crockpot Sausage and Peppers 

This meal was super easy to make and so often the Eckrich Sausage is on sale for under $1 so this is a very inexpensive meal.  For all freezer meals make sure to label your freezer bag with the name of the recipe, cooking instructions, and prep date.  Freezer meals can be frozen for up to 3 months.  

Makes 6 to 8 servings

Here are some other awesome things about freezer-to-crockpot meals:

  • Most of these meals require no cooking ahead of time, so that means the recipes are very easy to prep.
  • The meals cook for the first time out of the freezer so they don’t taste like leftovers (BUT leftovers are okay right?!)
  • For us that coupon, we can take advantage of all the sales and freeze a couple at a time. (Most freezer meals will last for at least 3 months.)
