Potato Gouda Chowder



In gallon zip-lock:

3/4 cup shredded Gouda cheese

1 cup Chopped cabbage

¼ cup Bacon cooked and cut in small pieces

3- 14 oz cans Chicken broth

1 cup Cream

3 cups potatoes, cubed and boiled until starting to get tender

1/2 cup Swiss cheese

1 tsp. salt (optional)


Put in gallon zip lock baggie and then double bag before freezing.


Thaw and heat on stove until cheese is melted.  I usually bring to a boil, then turn heat down and simmer for about 3-60 mins or heat in crockpot.  Serve with fresh bread, salad.


This takes a while to prep, so I make up 8 bags at a time (we use 2 bags each meal to feed my larger family) so I buy the following to make my large batch.

For 4 double recipes, 8 total bags I buy:

1 package chopped cabbage

1 Costco Gouda cheese

1 Swiss cheese slices

2 lbs bacon or 1 package precooked bacon at Costco

Large bag of potatoes

2 heavy cream quarts

8 large organic chicken broth cartons at Costco
