20 Crockpot Freezer Meals for Two People

By September 13, 2015Freezer Prep Session

When my 31 Crockpot Freezer Meals for Back-to-School when viral a lot of people asked me how to modify my recipes for two people.  Typically, my recipes have 4-6 servings, so my answer was to split each freezer meal in half and cook it in a smaller crockpot.

I decided to give this method a try myself and picked 10 of my favorite crockpot freezer meals to split into 20 freezer meals with 2-3 servings each.

Here’s what I made:

  1. Two freezer bags of Sloppy Joe’s (from my Crock’d Slow Cooker Freezer Meals eCookbook and shared for free below)
  2. Two freezer bags of Minestrone Soup
  3. Two freezer bags of Italian Wedding Soup
  4. Two freezer bags of Meatball Vegetable Soup
  5. Two freezer bags of Shredded Beef and Carrots (the beef can be used for sandwiches)
  6. Two freezer bags of Shredded BBQ Chicken (for sandwiches)
  7. Two freezer bags of Beef Chili
  8. Two freezer bags of Cranberry Pork Roast with green beans
  9. Two freezer bags of Beef and Barley Stew (recipe from Live Simply)
  10. Two freezer bags of Stuffed Peppers

I also typed the ingredients and cooking instructions onto printable freezer labels and saved them so I can use them again in the future.  Here are the files if you want to use them too:

  1. Freezer Labels for Recipes 1-4 (print two if you are splitting the recipes into two bags like I did)
  2. Freezer Labels for Recipes 5-8 (print two if you are spitting the recipes into two bags)
  3. Freezer Labels for Recipes 9 and 10

I already tested out a couple of the meals in two new mini crockpots that I bought and they were delicious.  Both of the crockpots were highly rated on Amazon and they work perfectly with these smaller meals.

(If you’re placing an order on Amazon, I also highly recommend these baggy clips to hold your bags while you’re filling them.  I own 10 and they’re amazing!)

It took me a little less than three hours to prep all 20 meals (including clean-up) and I spent $122 on ingredients.  That works out to only 9 minutes and $6 per meal.  I’m pretty sure there’s no cheaper and easier way to prepare healthy dinners.

One thing I learned from this freezer meal prep session was to stick with regular name-brand freezer bags. I thought that these smaller meals would work in the Ziplock vacuum bags, but the hand pump made a huge mess and several of the bags leaked.  What a disaster!
