Idahoan potatoes in handIf you know me, you know that I adore potatoes. Once cooked, twice cooked, or I’ll even take them three times cooked. If it’s a potato, I’m a fan.

Growing up, our comfort food was always potatoes. We had potatoes with nearly every meal, made from scratch to complement whatever entree we were having. My grandmother’s potatoes were truly legendary, and I still dream of helping her perfect them at each meal just so I could score one of the beater whisks to lick. Really, we were quite spoiled with delicious potatoes and I’ve never found any restaurant or cafe that could compare.Idahoan mashed potatoes feast 3Now in my own little family, potatoes are a way of life. I do make pasta and rice more than we ever had growing up, but potatoes are still our main starch because they are the way to all of our hearts. While I do love making them from scratch just like my grandma used to make, that’s not always possible with our busy schedules. I recently found a perfect solution with Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes that are real potatoes, real easy… and they really do taste homemade.  Idahoan buttery homestyle potatoes

A hearty meal in minutes with Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes

To complement our Idahoan potatoes, I served up some homemade garlic toast that goes well with just about any meal, but it especially shines with potatoes. I have found the trick to the best buttery garlic toast is combining the butter with crushed garlic and then spreading on the bread. Then, I sprinkle a little onion and garlic table blend on the top and pop it in the oven for a few minutes on broil. Perfection, every single time. Idahoan mashed potato feastServed with the Idahoan Mashed Potatoes, and some amazing melt-in-your-mouth sous vide {the asparagus and the steak}, my hands-on dinner time was mere minutes and the result is awesomely delicious. It may take a little longer to sous vide the main course, but I can let it go all afternoon and not even think about it until dinner time. Then, dinner is literally as easy as boiling water for the potatoes and then popping the garlic toast into the oven for a few minutes. I can get us sitting down to dinner within 10 minutes of the first “I’m hungry”, which I’m going to call a big huge win.Idahoan mashed potatoes feast 3
