Keto Crockpot Tips
One of the ways we most use our crock-pot at home is by doing meal prep for the week. If you're already putting together an easy dinner, why not double the recipe and store half in the freezer for another meal? Here's a list of our meal prep tips for putting together amazing keto crockpot meals.
Using a Crock-pot for Meal Prep
- Have more than one crockpot! We have 2 large crockpots and 1 small one that works perfectly for appetizers and warm snacks. My crazy sister has 4 crockpots for her weeknight meal prep!
- Do your keto meal prep on Sundays and assemble multiple crockpot meals.
- Double the recipes. This is where a large crockpot really comes in handy. Even if it's just you or one other person in your household, a large crockpot is a gem and prevents you from cooking every. single. night.
- Buy disposable crockpot liners to make cleanup easy.
- Is this not the MOST adorable crockpot accessory you've ever seen?!
- Go to keto crockpot recipes. Whether it be from websites like ours, Pinterest, or a handy dandy cookbook like this, having ideas to cook is critical! You can get this keto crockpot book for FREE with a kindle download. We tried Kindle Unlimited for free for 30 days and downloaded tons of great resources. I'm still not sure if I'll keep it, but it's been awesome for getting free keto resources.

One of our absolute FAVORITE keto crockpot recipes is this crockpot Italian sausage and peppers. Cheese can get added at the end and broiled, you'll be surprised how this one tastes like pepperoni pizza.
You first sear the Italian sausage before adding the sausage, bell peppers, onion, marinara sauce, and seasoning to the slow cooker. Once it's all cooked through and the flavors have blended, you can transfer it to an oven safe dish to broil and melt cheese on the top. Serve it casserole-style or in a low-carb bun.
