    This was fantastic and so easy! I also added in some sweet potato I had leftover in the fridge to use and stirred through some frozen spinach for added veggies. It made such a generous amount! We are using the leftover tonight to make pies!
    Certainly going to become a regular on our menu rotation!

    What makes this one unable to be frozen?!
    Thanks so much

      Good Morning Kayla! I’ve found in the past the mixture hasn’t been wet enough to cover the potatoes and they turn a little bit mushy after being frozen. In saying that, you could definitely freeze it for up to 3 months, just bearing in mind the texture of the potatoes won’t be quite the same as when it was cooked fresh. I hope that helps. I haven’t made this dish in ages and you’ve reminded me to make it again! The kids love it! Nic x
