After you make baked potatoes, you may have leftovers that you do not want to discard. Freezing the baked potatoes allows you to enjoy them later. Frozen baked potatoes generally only last for one month in the freezer. When you are ready to enjoy the baked potatoes, they do not need to be defrosted. Heat frozen baked potatoes in the oven or microwave. Reheating the baked potatoes properly ensures that they remain fresh and flavourful.
