(Actually, I should probably qualify that by saying, "I don't know if you're technically supposed to, but I freeze them and haven't had any problems." But then I seldom allow technicalities to get in the way of whatever it is I want to do!!)

I said and SAID last summer: "We need to bottle some of this and save it for later." But did anybody listen? Noooooooo!!

no! i mean you can if you want, but it will alter the texture. unless you are going to use if for something else, like add to mince or something. generally defrosted potatos, in all forms, is a no no, because after the freezer, its just not the same... haha

Actually, it's rather supported in many OAMC groups.
I've cooked mashed potatoes, measured them in cupcake tins, & froze as individual servings.

Now I use a vacuum sealer too, but even before that it worked fine. I throw what I need into the microwave, stir, & sometimes add a little milk. So far so good. When I first considered freezing like this, I checked all kinds of university & federal sites for info on vegetable freezing. All of them said it was ok. Changes occur if you don't cook the potatoes first.

I have purchased them in the freezer compartment of the comminsary, just like fresh (frozen) hashbrown potatoes.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Frozen Mashed Potatoes

Frozen mashed potatoes are best reheated over a double boiler, IMHO. /rayt721
