I’ve partnered with Idahoan on this sponsored post and all opinions stated are my own.
Fall is here and I’m so thrilled. Cooler days, sweaters, boots, and warm hearty meals. This is my favorite time of year for casseroles, stews, and soups. They really help to feed the soul and keep you warm on a cool, crisp night. One of my favorite meals to make is a roast, stew, or beef tips with gravy and paired with mashed potatoes. I usually save those meals for Sunday night dinners since they take a little more work to create, but there are some nights where you want some hearty comfort food and finding ways to make them on busy weeknights is a must. For those busy nights I pull out my Instant Pot or Slow cooker and use Idahoan Signature Russets.
Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes, but they’re a little time consuming to make. I always have some quick to make mashed potatoes on hand for those nights where I just don’t have the time to make some from scratch. Idahoan Signature Russets are made with more than six pounds of premium Idahoan russet potatoes in every 16 oz. pouch and are grown to perfection in Idaho’s rich volcanic soil during its warm summer days and cool summer nights. All you need is 5 minutes, milk, butter, and water to get delicious mashed potatoes. They taste just like homemade mashed potatoes, but without all the time.
Idahoan Signature Russets are smooth, creamy, and the perfect addition to any dish. I paired them with some beef and gravy and it’s was the perfect quick dinner on a cool fall night. I love being able to have a quick solution to some of our favorite meals that can take a while to prepare. The best thing about Idahoan Signature Russets is that they can be dressed up or down. Eat them as they are, load with with cheese, bacon, and sour cream for loaded potatoes, or use them to top casseroles – the possibilities are endless!
