With the winter months come cooler temperatures and limited sunshine, ugh. Tons of items are on your plate and putting together meals ends up at the bottom of the list. I promise, we get it. So when a day looks busy, pre-planning dinner options is always a good idea. The crockpot makes it so easy too! Just throw everything into the pot in the AM and your meal is ready when you get home (and your home smells delicious for the whole day!) SO when you’re tight on time, and want your meal ready in advance, try one of these crockpot recipes!

21 Crockpot Recipes

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole  via Chelsea’s Messy Apron // A staple in our household. This recipe checks all of the comfort food boxes, and is on the healthier side with wild rice.

crockpot recipes

Parmesan Basil Tomato Soup via Little Spice Jar // Tomato soup + grilled cheese is a go-to combo of ours, but making soup from scratch is typically so time consuming. Not with this Crockpot friendly recipe tho.

Buttery Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes via Creme de la Crumb // The classic side, simplified but not lacking in flavor at all.
