Transfer leftover or freshly made potato dishes to a freezer-safe storage container. Leave 1 inch of space at the top of the container for any expansion that occurs during freezing. Seal the container after the food cools and place it in the freezer.4
Store the packaged, frozen potato dishes for one to two months. Thaw casseroles and combination dishes in the refrigerator for six to eight hours before reheating. Hash browns, french fries and similar potato dishes don't require thawing before cooking.Tips & Warnings
