Yoy most certainly can :-) Just be sure that if it is freshly made that it cools down a bit first and if it has been in your fridge for awhile just use common sense as to if it had been stored in there too long.

Yes, all kinds of soup can be frozen.

Anything CAN be frozen; the questionable part is its quality when it's defrosted. Frozen milk gets watery when it's defrosted, so you may have the same problem with the soup.


Maybe you could add some half and half or cream when you reheat it to counteract that. Either way, it would still be edible.

If you have chunks of potato, they tend to get a little mushy and mealy when frozen. I personally would can the potato soup in a water bath canner. It's not hard to do. Debbie-Jenn

Yes, I mash my potatoes and put them in. I make enough for 3 meals at a time. I freeze the extra for easy weeknight meals.

Thank you all for your help and advise. Here is the basic recipe, a adjust to whatever I have on hand at the time, or whatever my tastes are for that day.


3-4 potatoes, diced (can peel if desired)
diced onion (to taste)
1 can cream of soup (I have used chicken, celery, mushroom, all are good)
1 can chicken broth (can use water, just enough to cover potatoes)
shredded carrots, optional
evaporated milk (I didnt have any at time, so I mixed powdered milk, have also used 2% milk)
salt and pepper to taste
can add shredded cheddar cheese

Cook potatoes, carrots and onion in broth (or water) till potatoes are mushy. Do not drain. Add remaining ingredients, and heat thru (do not boil), stirring occasionally, and if using cheese, heat till cheese melts. I also added cheese to bowls after putting soup into them. Very easy, tasty, and can be frugal. If you want it a thinner soup, add more milk.
