Simple Corn & Clam Chowder | 10 Meals in an Hour | Freezer Cooking | Freezer meals | Meal Planning | Soup Recipe

While the weather’s starting to heat up, there’s still nothing I love more for a simple but hearty meal than a bowl of delicious homemade soup.  Luckily this corn and clam chowder transitions beautifully into summer, making it the perfect recipe to enjoy all year long.

And let me tell you, enjoy it you will, because it is quite possibly my favorite soup recipe to date. The fact that it comes together fast with just a few minutes of prep, then freezes beautifully and goes straight to the crock pot is just icing on the cake, as far as I’m concerned!

Step 4: On cooking day, place frozen soup directly into slow cooker. Set to high and cook for 3-4 hours or on low for 4-5 hours. *If adding diced potatoes, do so with about an hour of cooking time left. (Do not freeze diced potatoes with soup mixture, they will turn black)

    This looks delicious and I love the addition of bacon! Bacon just makes everything better!!!

    Thank you for this recipe! Here in Virginia, spring is trying to keep its hold, so it’s really cold here! I’ve been looking for some lighter soups that will help take the edge off the rainy days. I also don’t know if you categorize your meals according to food allergy, but this one is easily gluten free, which I also love. So many chowders have flour as a thickening agent.

    I am always looking for new crockpot recipes. I think the kids would love this one! I have Celiac Disease, so our family meals are almost always gluten free (mine always are, of course.) I love that this one is naturally gluten free, I would just need to make sure I use GF broth and bacon. I’ll add this to my meal plan!

    If I am making one of the freezer bag’s worth, do I add all 4 cans of clams, the full cup of whipping cream, etc. on cooking day? Or are the cooking day ingredients intended to cover both batches?

      Yes, you would add the 4 cans of clams, the potatoes and the one cup of cream on cooking day. I hope you enjoy. 🙂
