Idahoan Mashed Potatoes ~ Put Idahoan on Your Table (Review & Giveaway)

 

As an Idahoan "born and raised," I can't help but love potatoes!  In all honesty, our family has some variety of potato with dinner almost every night of the week!  Baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, hashbrowns... french fries, tater tots, and steak fries are among our favorites!

 
 
We recently received a variety of samples of Idahoan Mashed Potatoes: four cheese, baby reds, roasted garlic, buttery homestyle, and loaded baked mashed potatoes.  Of course, our family has enjoyed Idahoan potatoes in the past, but I never realized that Idahoan flavored mashed potatoes came in so many different varieties and could be used for so many different recipes.

In addition to the variety, delicious taste, and creamy texture is the fact that Idahoan potatoes are made from 100% REAL Idaho Potatoes!  To be totally honest, my family can't choose a favorite.  We love them all!

Need a great side dish that can be ready in a moment’s notice? Just add a little cheese and thyme to their Buttery Homestyle Flavored Mashed, and you’re done.  Herbed buttery mashed potatoes are done as easy as 1...2...3!

 

Have picky eaters in your house that don't like to eat their vegetables?  You can easily hide cauliflower in mashed potatoes too!  Trust me, it works!  Just steam and mash.

 
Ingredients:
  • 1 4-oz package Buttery Homestyle Flavored Mashed Potatoes
  • 2 oz herbed chevre cheese
  • ½ tsp fresh thyme
Instructions:
  1. Prepare mashed potatoes according to package directions.
  2. Stir in cheese and thyme and serve.

This is difficult, because there are a lot of good recipes over on the website. I would try the Bacon & Cheddar Chipotle Potatoes first as far as recipes go. As far as products, I love the red dill little ones, so that would be my first choice as far as product goes.

I did not even know that the bacon and cheddar chipotle flavored potatoes even existed! I want to try them out. I bet they would be delicious with a nice juicy steak or some garlic and herb chicken. We buy the roasted garlic Idahoan potatoes every week. They are so delicious but we are always willing to try some new flavors.
