Idahoan Mashed Potatoes Recipe & Giveaway!

“I participated in this event on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers for Idahoan Foods. I received Idahoan products to facilitate my review.”



To say I have a very busy household would be an understatement. By the time the kiddos are getting out of their afterschool activities and homework gets completed, it’s late and time for Supper. I love cooking for my family but during the week I don’t have a lot of time to work with.


We love having potatoes with our meal but to peel, boil and prepare gets pretty time consuming. That’s why when I’m short on time I enjoy using Idahoan Flavored Mashed Potatoes. They have so many yummy flavors to choose from. Idahoan is a grower-owned company in Eastern Idaho which began over 50 years ago. Idahoan uses 100% Idaho potatoes in all of its products! =) They are super easy to prepare and ready in less than 4 minutes.


Just the other day the kids and I picked out a recipe from Idahoan Foods that we all would like. We chose the Herbed Buttery Mashed Potatoes. This recipe is so simple but tastes sooo good! It calls for Idahoan Buttery Homestyle Potatoes, Chevre Cheese and fresh Thyme. The recipe below will serve 4 but having a larger family we just doubled the ingredients. They came out so good we will definitely be using this recipe again.

You can find this recipe and many others by visiting HERE.
