baked goods are best because red skin potatoes don't freeze that well on their own. Potato bread, potato biscuits, something like that is your best bet here.
You can probably make potato pancakes but will need to cook them all the way and then freeze. Simple to reheat, just place on teflon coated pan or cookie sheet and reheat.There will be enough oil in them to re-crisp the potato. Add a bit of lemon juice to keep the potatoes from discoloring.
