Busy families sometimes need help getting a quality homemade dinner on the table. I believe that homemade dinners eaten together as a family is extremely important. But, I also know that families are busier than ever and it can be hard to get a meal together that isn't fast food or an entree from a box. Simply Potatoes has a great solution to this age-old dinner time problem.
Simply Potatoes aren't dehydrated, canned, or frozen potatoes....they're refrigerated products that can make a good meal great. They have a ton of choices too, although I found out that not all stores or regions carry them all. The have the basic potatoes like hash browns, diced, wedges, etc. They also have side dishes like macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes. Their new products are steamable seasoned potatoes and they look really good. I can't wait until some of these are in my stores.
We gave a couple packs a try to see how it went for dinner and breakfast. I made the Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes for dinner. The bag of potatoes was certainly enough to feed my family of 2 adults and 2 growing teens and was on sale for $1.99 at Food Lion. I followed the package directions exactly, but I think the potatoes needed cooking a few minutes more because they were a little crisper than I generally prefer. The seasoning was nice and had a peppery taste to it. Hubby and son didn't love them all that much, but my daughter was in love with the left overs she re-heated.
For breakfast I made the Shredded Hash Browns. These were also quite enough to feed all of us with some left over and were sold at the same price as the Steakhouse potatoes. I liked the hash browns with the exception of the seasoning.....which I'm not sure was there at all. You really need to add some salt, pepper, and any other seasoning you want to these while they're cooking to get a good taste.
I was definitely pleased with how easy these sides made dinner time and I'll be getting more of them when they're on sale. I can't wait to try out the new Steamables and possibly use some of the recipes they have on their website. They also have a good selection of gluten-free recipes there too.
Now for the fun part.....Simply Potatoes has offered one of my readers a free product coupon to try it out for yourself!
