5 Tasty Slow Cooker Dump Meals

5 Tasty Slow Cooker Dump Meals

While prepping for baby, one piece of advice I was given was to have easy meals ready to go for the first week or two. Apparently cooking is not your top priority with a new baby in the house. Slow-cooker dump meals seemed like the best answer. For those who are not familiar with these, you freeze the ingredients, throw them in the fridge the night before to thaw, and dump them into the slow-cooker on low in the morning. By dinnertime, you have a ready-to-go meal that’s cheaper and (probably) healthier than relying on delivery and take-out.

I ended up making 10 meals (that’s all that fits in my freezer). Each meal makes between 4-6 servings, so I’m figuring I’ve got at least two weeks before I have to cook anything.


Like what you see? There’s another 5 meals here in part 2.
