When Target had their potatoes on sale a few weeks ago, I bought several bags. I decided to try a few ways of freezing potatoes. Here is a recipe I tried and am very pleased with the results!
Twice Baked Potatoes
8 - 10 medium baking potatoes
3 Tbsp butter
1 cup sour cream (not reduced fat)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup milk
salt and pepper
Bake potatoes in foil until tender (approx 90 min. @ 350). Before they cool. cut the top of the potato off and carefully scoop out the insides into a large bowl. Add all ingredients, except paprika and beat with mixer. The mixture should not be runny nor too firm.
Scoop the mixture back into the potato skins. If you get a cracked potato skin, don't worry, a few of mine did and the were fine after they were filled.
If you want to freeze: Wrap the potatoes in plastic wrap. Place in freezer until frozen. Then you can place in a large ziploc bag or container in your freezer.
To bake: If they are frozen, thaw in refrigerator, take off plastic wrap, cover the potato skin park with foil, leaving the top open. Sprinkle with paprika and bake. If you just mixed them up and they are still hot, bake 30 minutes. If they are thawed, you might need 60 min. @ 350 degrees.
Note: We like to make potato skins with the cut off tops of the potatoes. I just sprat them with oil and bake until crispy. We eat them with butter and sour cream.
