Freezing Twice Baked Potatoes


Temperatures are heating up here and I hate to turn on the oven and heat up the house. Now is the time of year that I get busy gardening and canning and such so this is the time of year that I like to premake food to save time. I use my crockpot lots, grill outdoors, eat lots of salads and premake meals. I dug about 8 pounds of potatoes and made twice baked potatoes to freeze. 

It was a rather simple process. I simply rubbed my cleaned potatoes with olive oil and coarse salt.  Then I baked them for about an hour and fifteen minutes at 350 or until soft. Then I allowed to cool for about a half hour and then split and spooned out the insides and mashed. 

To the mashed insides of the potatoes I added sour cream, chives, bacon bits, cheese, salt and pepper. Then I took the mashed potato insides and spooned back into the shells and then sprinkled with cheese and bacon bits and froze on baking sheets.  

Once frozen I removed them from the baking sheets and wrapped the individual halves in aluminum foil and added them back to the freezer. I take them out in the mornings that I want to eat them and unwrap and defrost to cook in the oven, in the microwave or on the grill. A great addition to a summer salad and grilled vegetables fresh from the garden. I find they are good for about 3 months in the freezer just wrapped in foil.

  1. This is great! Thank you, CQ. :-)

  2. Yum!! I love twice baked potatoes and having items in the freezer to just thaw and cook.

  3. I did not know you could freeze these in advance! I usually avoid freezing potatoes in soups and such, but these sound good.
