Foods Not to Freeze

These foods lose flavor, texture, or overall quality when frozen.

Here are some foods you should not try to freeze:

  • Battered and fried foods
  • Cooked egg whites and yolks, as well as icings made with egg whites
  • Cottage and ricotta cheeses
  • Custard and cream pies or desserts with cream fillings
  • Mayonnaise
  • Soups and stews made with potatoes, which can darken and become mushy when frozen
  • Soups and stews thickened with cornstarch or flour
  • Sour cream
  • Stuffed chops or chicken breasts
  • Whole eggs in the shell, whether raw or cooked
