    Using Mr T's crispy skin tater recipe I whipped up a bunch of twice baked taters to vac pac and freeze. They freeze and reheat easily, In fact you can reheat them right in the vac pac bag.


    Oiled and seasoned. I did six taters total. Seasoned three at a time.



    Out of the oven and ready for scooping and mixing.


    Fresh chives from the garden


    Chopped Smoked Hatch Chile. Also added smoked pepper jack and smoked cheddar.


    Ready for the freezer. You need to freeze these prior to vac-packing! A couple hours or overnight will do.



    Packed and ready for the freezer. I use the premium bags  from Vacuum Sealers Unlimited. They have a pouch that you can slip a label into prior to sealing. Works better when the food you are sealing is flat!

    One thing I forgot to mention is that you need to freeze these prior to vac-packing. I just put them on the cookie sheet on some saran wrap and place in the freezer for a couple hours.

    Those really look good DS,  I can see they would be a real time saver when on the go.  Is that Idaho wind blowing your way?
