Question Freezing baked potatoes

Has any one ever frozen a baked potato? I was thinking about baking a whole bunch of potatoes and freezing them, to pull out for lunches and dinners when Im pressed for time.

I don't see why it'd be a problem. You can buy many potato products that are frozen (cooked or par-cooked.)

Will you be reheating them in a microwave or eating cold? If you have access to a microwave you can just pack a raw potato and "bake" in the microwave in very little time.

The grocery store near me is having a really good sale on the nice russet potatos so I was going to stock up on them.

Can you freeze potatoes? I freeze bread and blueberries...but never thought of potatoes. I waste mine all the time.

Then bake and freeze away. I'm quite certain they'll be fine. Of course, you could do a test run just to make sure.

Yup, baked potatoes freeze just fine.

I think the only way you CAN'T freeze potatoes is raw... everything else I've tried seems to work pretty well.

You should be able to freeze potatoes raw if you are going to 'do something' with them. I froze some sweet potatoes not too long ago and then whipped them out for a recipe. I'm not sure how they'd taste if you tried to make them into 'baked potatoes' but things like mashed potatoes, used in soup, etc, they should be fine.
