Easy Side Dish Trick #SignatureRussets #Ad

Post is brought to you by Idahoan. All opinions are mine and mine alone.


Busy days have only just started for me. This year we have two kids in school and one at home. One is in cheer and the other soccer. Thats like 3/5 days for practices, some Saturdays, and most Sundays for games. Our week is literally non-stop. What do we eat for dinner? Well at first it was fast food junk. Yuck, we don’t even like it. We needed to come up with dinner ideas that were either fast or something I could set and forget till it was time to eat.


We found the best of both worlds with Idahoan Russet Potatoes. You literally have home made mashed potatoes within 5 minutes about. Idahoan Russets are 100% real. We whipped up a bag to try out with our roast beef one night. I had set the roast beef in the crock pot all day. When we got back at 7;30 from practice, we were all so hungry. I was out of veggies but forgot I had this bag hanging around waiting to be used. We whipped it up in surprisingly what felt like seconds.


The water started to boil, added my milk, added potatoes and whipped. BAM, they were ready to go. Like seriously. We got a hearty meal and I barely did any work for it. While the Russets are a great side dish for lots of meals. You can whip up a bag, add some cheese and bacon. You can put stuff on top of them. So many endless options.

We put in a roast in the crock pot and let it simmer all day while I was cleaning and running around. We got back from practice and the kid had to eat and get ready for bed. While they got ready quick, I prepared their plate. They all wanted seconds too.


When your week is busy like mine and your wanting a home cooked meal. Don’t think to hard. Grab a bag of Russets for a super quick and easy side dish.

With Idahoan Russets you can make any dinner time durring your busy week taste like a Sunday! “The secret, of course, to the great taste of new Idahoan Signature Russets mashed potatoes is that Idahoan potatoes grown to perfection in Idaho’s rich volcanic soil during its warm summer days and cool summer nights. In fact,  more than six pounds of premium Idahoan russet poatoes  go into every 16 oz. pouch.

But beyond that, Idahoan is innovating the category with its new proprietary processing method that maintains the potato’s natural goodness and texture. The result: mashed potatoes that taste as good as if you peeled, boiled, and mashed them yourself.”

    It’s been a long time since I’ve tried instant mashed potatoes. It sounds like they’ve come a long way! We’re busy with practices and games, too. I think I’ll try them.
