I’ve partnered with Idahoan on this sponsored post and all opinions stated are my own.
With three kids and another on the way, our weeknights are busy. Our nights can get filled up by all kinds of school activities from marching band to choir to parenting meetings and curriculum nights, which leaves little time for dinner. I get so annoyed with myself when I look at the clock and realize it’s dinner time, and I have nothing planned.
My family loves a home cooked meal, and Sunday dinner is the gold standard. It’s when I go all out and make just about everything from scratch. While it’s amazing, it also can take forever, which I don’t have time on the weeknights.
One of their favorite side dishes is mashed potatoes. I grew up with a mom who often made mashed potatoes with potato flakes, but when I got married, my husband only wanted the real thing. Nowadays, homemade potatoes just takes too long for a weeknight meal with peeling and cutting potatoes and waiting for them to boil and soften. But, I’ve found a solution that is going to knock you and your family’s socks off — Idahoan Signature Russets!
I have to admit I was skeptical until I tasted them. They take just a few minutes to whip up with water and some milk and butter. Oh my goodness, they honest to goodness taste like I slaved over the stove making mashed potatoes from scratch. They’re creamy and buttery and taste oh so good!
You will not be able to tell they weren’t made from scratch — they are that good! My kids took one taste and LOVED them, all three of them! Even my husband was impressed, and my 6 year old wanted seconds, which is just unheard of around here. Idahoan Signature Russets can make any weeknight meal taste like a Sunday supper!
Are you dying to know their secret? Every 16 oz package has more than six pounds of premium Idahoan russet potatoes that were grown in volcanic rich soil during warm summer days and cool summer nights. Plus, they have a new proprietary processing method that maintains the potato’s natural goodness and texture, which means they taste just like homemade!
In just five minutes you can make these delicious potatoes with milk and butter or just water! Not only that, but the new pouches are re-sealable!
Idahoan Signature Russets Mashed Potatoes are available now nationwide at stores like Walmart and Kroger! Pick some up for a great weeknight meal to taste like a Sunday supper!
