I love mashed potato, but I hate peeling potatoes...
So, I cook loads of potatoes at once - 3 or 4kg usually - when we're due to have mash with a meal. Mash them as usual, take out what you need for the current meal, then package up the rest of the mash into portion sizes (I freeze 2 portions in one bag).
Then, I tend to get them out of the freezer the morning we need them for tea and let them defrost all day. To reheat, I put them in a pan on a low-ish heat, with a bit of butter and keep stirring until they return to the appropriate consistency.
They also are good for using as shepherds/cottage pie toppings - as they reheat in the oven.
