Blustery Day Double Potato Chowder


It is really windy here in Utah today, so I figured this recipe was appropriate. Enjoy!


1 c dried instant hash browns
1⁄4 c diced dried onions
4 t low sodium vegetable or beef bouillon
1 t dried parsley
1⁄4 t diced dried garlic
1⁄4 t dried thyme
1⁄4 t ground black pepper
1⁄2 c instant mashed potatoes
1⁄4 c shelf stable parmesan cheese
1⁄2 c fried onions
1 T olive oil (1 packet)
4 c water


At home:
In a sandwich bag pack the hash browns through black pepper. In a second bag pack the mashed potatoes through the fried onions. Tuck in the oil.

In camp:
Add the vegetable/seasoning bag and 4 cups water to your pot. Cover and set aside for 15 minutes for the vegetables to re-hydrate  Add the oil, stir well and bring to a boil. Lower the flame to low, cover and simmer on a low boil for five minutes. Turn off the stove and the contents of the cheese/potato bag to the pot. Stir well, taste for seasoning and more pepper and salt as desired.

  1. wow…I would follow you on the trail anywhere if I knew that was going to be dinner at the end of the day! 🙂 What part of Utah do you live in?

    • We live in Springville which is a few miles south of Provo. You are more than welcome to hike with us anytime. Thank you for your comment. God Bless you!

      • perhaps someday! 🙂 I asked because I once lived in Ogden and worked in Salt Lake.
