FREEZER MEAL DIRECTIONS
Place filled potatoes on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Put the pans in the freezer for up to two hours to flash freeze. You can see in my picture below how I layered my potatoes on large metal pans.
After you flash freeze wrap each potato in plastic wrap and fill gallon size freezer bags. We filled at least 10-gallon size bags of Twice Baked Potatoes!
Set out a bag from the freezer into the refrigerator to completely defrost.
Preheat oven to 375
Remove plastic wrap and place potatoes on a baking tray
