Freezer Mashed Potatoes

When life gets crazy and there really isn’t time to cook it’s good to have some things in the freezer you can heat and eat.  I’ve received some good feed back on the Freezer Breakfast Burritos I shared awhile back so I thought I’d offer this idea.

This is more of a tip than a recipe.   It’s a way to save individual servings of mashed potatoes for easy reheating.

Some weekend when potatoes are crazy cheap and you have a little extra time use your favorite mashed potato recipe and whip up a huge batch.  I’m talking 5, 10, even 15 pounds worth.

To save individual servings of mashed potatoes use an ice cream scoop/food server to dish up potatoes on wax paper lined cookie sheets.  You can see the scoop I use here.

Let cool and then place in the deep freeze until completely frozen. Then you can transfer to freezer bags.

Now whenever you want mashed potatoes pull out the number of servings you want, thaw, heat and eat. Fifteen pounds of potatoes made the 48 servings in the picture above.

I’m always looking for good freezer ideas.  If you have one let me know.

  1. Thanks for the input, Sharon. I’ll check it out. Spending an entire day cooking a month’s worth of meals is something I’d like to work up to.

    1. Good question! They might appear to be a little watery as they thaw but I’ve found it goes away as you stir it up and continue to reheat.
