Nope that is how I would do it. My first husband told me once to use a little of the potato water to mash them if I was just going to freeze them. I never tried it though. I thought the water would create ice crystals.

Nope sorry...If you read post #14 carefully, she added only butter, salt and pepper. No milk at all.
Post #26 will tell what she did after defrosting them.
