I’d assume you reheat in the oven from frozen like you would any frozen potato product – gas 6/7, 12-15 mins approx.

Feed your family for about £20 a week.

Tricia Hopcroft Yvonne Wray I used to do these! Make twice as much mash one day, and you have an easier potato option the next day!

Always a Christmas dinner treat. Grandchildren call them curly potatoes and always had to have some squirted into their hands to eat x
