Freezing Onion in Stuffing

Q: Hi, I'd like to make some sage and onion stuffing and freeze it until Christmas. I'm worried that freezing might damage the onion bits or make them into mush.

What happens?

A: Hi Jeff,
Onions freeze really well in most dishes. I have to admit we've never frozen stuffing 'cause there's never any leftovers around here. I do freeze onions in soups and they don't turn mushy.

If it's only the texture you're worried about freeze your stuffing overnight and then thaw and reheat it. I've found if the texture of frozen food changes it'll happen right away. Flavor changes, however, take some time.
