I would like to know if I can partially cook my potatoes and then slice them thinly, like Hasselback potatoes, and freeze them for later use? I enjoy grilling my potatoes with onion between the slices, but after work there just isn’t enough time. Freezing them would make things easier, and then I could just grab it out of the freezer and pop it on the grill.
This may be successful by freezing, but usually a re-cooked baked potato has a skin that wrinkles as moisture is lost and may have some graying inside. You could certainly try it. Manufacturers have the ability to blast freeze potatoes in 30 seconds to a minute, not easily replicated at home.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
