Make classic sausage and peppers for dinner without any hassle by using this easy freezer meal prep recipe.
We’ve got some serious budget goals to hit this year so I’m really upping my freezer meal game.
Freezer meals are the best when you’re a habitual takeout-orderer. Keeping our freezer stocked with them has helped us saved hundreds of dollars some months (we live in LA where ordering food is quite expensive).
This sausage and pepper crock pot prep can almost always be found in out freezer. I love how versatile it is. If we’re being strict low-carb we serve it with cauliflower rice. If our diet is more flexible it’s great with white rice, on pasta, or on a hoagie as a sandwich.
