basic question

PFDecember 16, 2001

What foods don't freeze well? I want to try the once a week cooking to save time, BUT I don't want to sacrifice taste and texture. Are there web addys for site that list this king of info? TIA

I think most anything freezes well. I find things with lots of cheese or milk are okay but not as good as originally made.

Potatoes do not freeze well. I would not freeze a stew with potatoes or a shepherds pie. The taste and the texture of the potatoes changes for the worst. Ann.

Generally potatoes do not freeze well, but mashed potatoes prepared with milk, butter etc. do just fine. I do this all the time. I know some folks freeze hash browns and partially cooked french fries, but I don't much care for the frozen ones.
