Easy Side Dishes ~ Betty Crocker Instant Mashed Potatoes Review & Giveaway

To find a delicious side dish that´s easy to prepare and tastes homemade, look no further than Betty Crocker´s® Boxed Instant Mashed Potatoes, which are made with 100% real potatoes.

We eat at the table every night as a family.  We unwind, talk about our days, share jokes and stories with each other and just relax while dining.  The problem with that is that I hate to cook haha.  I will cook my family a meal but I do not enjoy it and we do not eat enough potatoes because I hate standing at the kitchen sink peeling, cutting, cleaning etc.  I do not have time for that I could use that time to clean up a mess or even better yet to play with my kids.  So we spend a lot of time eating rice rather then potatoes.

I had tried instant potatoes before but was not a fan of them, I found they tasted weird and was just not as good as the real thing.  I now know it was the brand of potatoes I had bought because when asked to do the Betty Crocker ones I was leery and went in expecting the same thing but I will try most anything, sometimes twice so I decided that we would give it a go.  Wow was my view way off when it comes to these potatoes, they are so delicious that I have stocked my pantry with the different flavors so that my family and I can get more potatoes and less rice.  Best of all there is two pouches of potatoes in each box so I know we will have enough potatoes for my entire family to eat at dinnertime.
