Have I mentioned this may be my favorite series on this blog? That is, after the whole date night thing :). I absolutely love having amazing homemade dinners, but I’m not a fan of spending all day in the kitchen. Freezer meals are a great solution, but many end up tasting like the freezer. I’m sharing some of my favorite tried-and-true recipes that freeze well and taste great, and are easy to make for dinner tonight and double for another in the coming weeks.
Today’s was a discovery I was thrilled to make! One cold day I had this hankering for potato soup, but I was working from home and only had my lunch break to prepare it, so using the CrockPot was a must. I found a few similar recipes online, tweaked them a bit, and came up with one of the easiest, most delicious crock pot freezer meals on the planet!
Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup

(This makes 1 batch, if you want to freeze one be sure to double!)
30 oz Bag Frozen Potatoes – grab the country style hash brown bag in cube form
32 oz box of chicken stock
1 small can of cream of chicken soup
Half of a medium onion finely diced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cube cream cheese

Throw everything in a slow cooker except the cream cheese. Cook on low for 6 hours. In the last 20 minutes toss in the cream cheese. Stir it all up and serve with bacon bits, cheddar cheese, and green onions, if desired.
*Adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything

If you’re going to freeze a batch add everything except the cream cheese to a freezer bag. No need to defrost the hash browns, just toss them in the bag as is! Freeze and be sure to write the directions on the bag, including a reminder to add cream cheese.

    Can you post a picture of the bag of potatoes you use.. I’m not sure whitch ones come cubed. Plus I’m more of a visual person
    This recipe sounds delish. I can’t wait to make it.

      I wish I had one handy! They are the Southern Style hash browns from the freezer section. They come in small cubes instead of the shoestring hashbrown shape. I hope that helps!

    1. So you can actually use any type! We’ve used all kinds and they all work about the same!

  3. This might be a silly question, but do you also freeze the chicken stock?

    This sounds so yummy and easy. Going on the menu soon. This would be fantastic with homemade bread too using my bread machine.
