    Default Slow cooker freezer bag meals

    I've been meaning to research this method of slow cooking and wondering if anyone does this?

    For those of you who aren't sure, basically you spend an afternoon chopping meat and veggies, add your sauces and spices, and whack them all into freezer bags and pop in the freezer. You then grab one out in the morning, chuck it in the slow cooker and you have your dinner ready when you come home.

    Does anyone have any recipes that would be suitable?

    I have seen lots pinned on Pinterest, but I've not tried them yet. It's a great idea!

    Ooh that's ideal for me right now! I did see an article or something yonks ago about cutting cooking time, where a Sunday was spent doing all prep. Can't for the life of me find it now though!

    So I'll keep looking but in tHe meantime I'm subbing for ideas

    Also, do you put the stuff in frozen? Or transfer to the fridge the night before to defrost a bit?

    I have lots of these pinned . But, I haven't tried them yet, all I can find are American recipes, which aren't to my taste, or I haven't bothered to ... Um.... Transcribe? To metric.

    Anyway, am trying to write out a few recipes to try, so far have a (from scratch) honey mustard chicken (cook sauce beforehand, cool, combine with raw chicken and veg), and there was something else I had too. Even have all my freezer bags ready! (Found double zip lock bags, in a big size, yay)

    Also interested to know if anyone has had a go at it. I would defrost each bag in the fridge the morning before too (so 24 hours, I hate putting frozen stuff in my sc).

    Nice to see you back Netix The mustard chicken sounds good though, we like that here! Gonna go try to find some recipes - I think the article I read was American too - and reckon defrosting is a good idea, with chicken I'd want to make extra sure it's cooked really well.

    Yep, a lot of the recipes I've seen so far are American and have put me off a little with their pound and ounces thing, maybe I should put a little more effort in to finding some!

    Teeki, make sure you share your findings
