How To Freeze Mashed Potatoes

------------------------ Sponsored Ads -----------------------

What does one do with all those potatoes coming fresh from the garden. Well some I have used to make homemade potatoe chips and sometimes I make thisĀ Hasselback potato recipe. Every now again I make mashed potatoes, and I have since learnt how to freeze mashed potatoes to save time.

If you do not know how to make mashed potatoes, then you are in luck because before you are shown how to freeze them, you will be given instructions on how to mash them. I personally use a lot less butter than the recipe calls for. The freezing part, is actually the easy part of the whole process.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • potatoes
  • food mixer
  • milk
  • salt
  • pepper
  • baking sheet
  • ziploc bag

Skin your potatoes, place them in the oven at 375 degrees F for at least 2 hours. If you have foil paper you can cover both the top and the bottom. When cooked transfer the potatoes to the mixer and start the mashing process. With the mixer on slow, add the butter followed by the milk and then the salt as well as pepper.

You can set some aside for dinner tonight, the left overs you will be freezing. Cover a baking sheet with any paper you have available, I used some cling wrap. The mashed potatoes are blobbed on there in single serving portions, before placing the baking sheet into the freezer for at least an hour. Store in ziploc bags in your freezer.
