Baked Potato Chowder | Freezer Friendly

Baked Potato Chowder

I was able to pick up a 10 pound bag of Russet Potatoes at ALDI recently for just $1.29. This is such a rare and incredible price. I’m happy to find them for $1.99 or less but the $1.29 was just completely irresistible.  It was a great opportunity to whip up a huge batch of this delicious baked potato chowder to freeze. ALDI also has dried parsley and basil, which makes it easy to make this recipe if you don’t want to purchase fresh herbs.

This recipe is based on on the Baked Potato Chowder recipe from the Fix, Freeze, Feast, which I’m loving! This huge batch makes 4 gallon freezer bag portions, which feeds about 4 people.

    You posted this at a good time, I bought a 10 lb bag of potatoes (although I didn’t get them for $1.29!), went to put them in my pantry and saw I already had a 10 lb bag! So now I need to figure out what to do with 20 lbs of potatoes LOL!
