Freezer Meal Recipes save so much time and money! We love freezer meal cooking!

One of my favorite, and probably the easiest Freezer Meal recipe I make, Ham and Scalloped Potatoes is simple, fast and nutritious!

Because this recipe is so simple, it only takes about 5 extra minutes to make 4 meals instead of 2, so I usuallyย prepare 4 at a time.

Freezer Meal Recipes: Ham and Scalloped Potatoes

5 / 5 (1 review)
Prep Time: 25mins | Cook Time: 8hrs
Serves: 4-6


  • For 2 Meals

  • 12 potatoes, sliced (about 1/4 inch thick)
  • 2 (10 3/4 oz) cans Cream of Chicken Soup (can substitute any Cream of Soup you have)
  • 2 2/3 cups water
  • 2 1/2 pounds ham
  • 4 cups broccoli (or 1 bag frozen broccoli (16 oz) if you want to save time)
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 gallon size freezer bags
  • For 4 Meals

  • 24 potatoes, sliced (about 1/4 inch thick)
  • 4 (10 3/4 oz) cans Cream of Chicken Soup (or 2 Large Cans-you'll have about 3 TBSP left over)
  • 5 1/3 cups water
  • 5 pounds ham
  • 8 cups broccoli (or 2 bags (16 oz) frozen broccoli)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 pound cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 gallon size freezer bags


  1. Place 2 cups broccoli in each gallon bag.
  2. Add 1 can (or 1 1/3 cups, if from the big cans) Cream of Chicken Soup to each bag.
  3. Add 1 1/4 lbs cubed ham to each bag. (This is another reason I like doing 4 at a time, I can just buy a 5 lb ham, cut it in fourths and cube each fourth. No extra measuring or guessing!)
  4. Add 1 1/3 cups (or one can, if you used the little cans of soup) water to each bag.
  5. Place 6-7 sliced potatoes (we like yellow or red-and leave the skins on for quicker prep) on top.
  6. Seal and lay flat to freeze.
  7. To cook, defrost slightly (enough to get out of freezer bag), place entire contents in slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
  8. In the last hour of cooking, add 4 oz shredded cheddar cheese (or if like me, you forget this step, add it at the end and stir gently).


I do all the other work in the same time it takes my sweet hubby to wash and slice the potatoes. Doing all four meals takes the 2 of us about 15 minutes.
You can add the cheese into the bags if you want to save a step, I just personally think it tastes better added at the end of cooking time.
If you don't add the potatoes at the end, and freeze right away, they may turn brown/black. This doesn't mean they are bad, it just is what they look like if left in the air to long.

Ingredients: Broccoli, Cheese, Cream of Chicken Soup, Ham, Pepper, Pork, Potatoes, Salt, Water

  • What perfect timing on this recipe! Zaycon ham is being delivered now, and Albertsons has 10# potatoes for .99 in our stores. Killer deals and tasty sounding recipe. Thanks for sharing and helping to make some of my nights more convenient.

    • I’m glad ๐Ÿ™‚ I love this recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s still great if you double up on everything but the ham. ๐Ÿ™‚ Depending on how much I want broccoli, sometimes I even throw in a whole bag when I add the stuff to the crock pot ๐Ÿ™‚ (Broccoli and steak are what I’m craving this pregnancy… I guess it could be worse! At least I’m not craving ice cream!)

  • I’m guessing yes but the potatoes do well frozen? I thought they didn’t do well frozen but its good to know they can be. Thanks for the recipe! I totally want to start doing freezer meals.

  • We make this…with a little variety but try adding thinly sliced yellow onions to it with cream of celery soup! And switch up the cheeses to include smoked or sharp! Yummo! Great recipe to play with! Even canned sliced or diced potatoes work!

  • If I make this fresh, how long should it cook in the crock pot?

  • Can’t use Cream of anything soup… can you make a Rouge/cream sauce instead?

  • Didn’t think you could freeze raw potatoes, good to know

  • What is the number of servings for this meal? Equal to a 9×13 casserole?

  • I just made this in the crockpot and its absolutely horrible. When we came home it looked like a batch of mushy pig slop. I recommend not freezing your potatoes as they turn black when frozen. Cut them when getting ready to make this. Doesn’t take that long. Also keep the broccoli as a side dish. Wish I could post the pic I took, of what it turned out to be. Very disappointed. Live and learn I guess. Learned to stick with my recipe.

    • I’m so sorry you didn’t like the recipe. You do have to be very fast from cutting the potatoes to freezing the meal, or your way is a great solution too! Plus it would take a lot less room in the freezee.
      Isn’t that a great thing about recipes? You can play with them until you get them to taste exactly how your family loves them!!

      • I made this tonight and followed instructions exactly and it was so horrible, I nearly gagged when tasting it. I’m not trying to be rude because yours looks amazing! Mine looks like..I dont know what. I froze the potatoes immediately after slicing, suvking out air to prevent discoloration and they turned black in the crock pot. They were slimy and limp but I let them cook anyway, hoping for the best. The texture did not improve. The broccoli practically liquified from cooking all day. Where did I go wrong?!

        • Ugg!! That’s horrible!! I’m so sorry!! I’m not quite sure where you went wrong… It sounds like you did everything right.
          I use a Bullet Express to slice my potatoes, which you apparently can’t even buy anymore… so it only takes me about 3 minutes to do enough potatoes for all 6 meals. ๐Ÿ™

    • To prevent browning of peeled potatoes place the slices in a lemon juice and water bath. Discoloration is the potatoe’s reaction to oxygen and the water keeps the O2 out. The lemon juice has a residual effect and keeps them naturally white while they sit in open air. This also works for apples and just about anything else that tends to change color quickly when exposed to oxygen.

  • I would like to try this recipe, however my husband has a dairy and a gluten allergy. Is there something to substitute for the canned cream of chicken ?
