Frequently Asked Questions

How do I freeze fully cooked potato dishes?

  • Fully cooked potato recipes freeze well too. Mashed potatoes are a great option to freeze since they retain their texture. To freeze mashed potatoes, allow them to cool completely. Place the mashed potatoes into resealable freezer bags and press them so they are in an even layer.
  • Potato-based soups can be frozen, along with chowders and stews.
  • Leftover baked potatoes can be frozen, but we recommend turning them into steak fries by cutting them into wedges before freezing to ensure even reheating.
  • To freeze leftover baked potatoes, cut them in half and scoop out the filling. Mash the filling with butter and cream, fold in cooked bacon, shredded cheddar, and chopped green onions. Spoon the filling into the potato shells. Place the filled potato shells into the freezer and allow them to freeze overnight. Place the stuffed shells in a resealable freezer bag in one even layer.
