Thank you Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes for sponsoring this post. Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes are real potatoes, real easy, delivering homemade taste on demand.
Alright, Supermom confession time…… I know that when people read my blog, they think I must have it all together, all the time. The blog is peppered with delicious homemade recipes, my kids always look like angels sitting around the dinner table dying to tell me how their day went and talk to me in depth about all my hopes and dreams. Um. Yeah, that is not quite my reality. While sometimes I have it together enough to put together a perfect meal all from scratch and of course all gluten-free, vegan, free-range and from an organic farm in the Sierra’s that specializes in daily vegetable yoga and positive plant affirmations, most of the time, I can barely muster the time and energy to pour milk into the kids’ cereal bowls for dinner.
Sound familiar? Girl, there is no shame in hustling home and throwing together something at the last minute. We can not all be on all the time, that would be exhausting. Sometimes you need to take the easy way out and guess what, sometime the easy way tastes just as good (if not better) than the long way!
Enter Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes.
Where have these been all my life?!?!?!? Y’all, Idahoan Mashed Potatoes are a literal game changer. I swore off other mashed potato brands a long time ago, they just couldn’t compete with real mashed potatoes in texture and flavor. Well, here comes Idahoan Mashed Potatoes to make me eat my words and rush out the store and stock up on the delicious flavors like Buttery Homestyle®, Butter and Herb, Bacon & Cheddar Chipotle, Roasted Garlic, Four Cheese, and Buttery Golden Selects. Did you know that they are made from 100% real Idaho® potatoes and ready in just minutes. They have the best taste and texture compared to any other mashed potato, I guess that’s why they are called “America’s Favorite Mashed Potatoes.”
My favorite flavor, hands down is the Bacon & Cheddar Chipotle. Just the right amount of kick and everybody knows that I can’t turn down anything with bacon.
I’m sure you all are wondering what in the world this has to do with French Onion Chicken…….well, because nothing goes better with a chicken dinner than mashed potatoes and these mashed potatoes are so easy they are the perfect compliment to my Easy Peasy French Onion Chicken.
What I love about this recipe is how easy it is to make and how it tastes like you slaved all day in the kitchen, when in reality, it took 25 minutes (and most of that was cook time!)
This recipe is sure to be a hit in your house too!!! Happy cooking!!!
