  • Flatten the bag and store it in the freezer until ready to eat.

Oven Cooking instructions:

  • Thaw.
  • Preheat oven to 350° and grease a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Transfer the ingredients to the dish and cook until heated through, around 20 minutes.

Slow Cooker instructions:

  • Cook from frozen in the slow cooker on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Pro tips: Reheating in the oven is my preferred method for these mashed potatoes. If they seem runny, they need to cook for longer.
