A QUICK, EASY, INEXPENSIVE, AND HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE TO INSTANT MASHED POTATOES
This is based on Schwan's packaged "Creamy Mashed Potatoes". It is frozen "cubes" of mashed potatoes, and you can use as little or as much as you need right out of the freezer. The Schwan's version is very convenient, but can be expensive, and contains a lot of unnecessary chemicals, preservatives, and fillers.
You can use any mashed potato recipe you want, but I recommend using a little extra liquid (cream, sour cream, etc.) because you don't want the potatoes to dry out when you reheat them after they have been frozen.
Once again, (for the "Chef" who gave this two stars without bothering to leave any comments) YOU CAN USE ANY MASHED POTATO RECIPE YOU WANT. I posted this recipe for the freezer "technique". If you are busy working during the week and don't have the pleasure of being a stay at home mom or a restaurant chef, then you may enjoy being able to pull a batch of "fresh" mashed potatoes out of your freezer and heat them up in a matter of minutes when you are tired at the end of a long day.
