Up until a few weeks ago, my only real experience with mashed potatoes came from a box. That's what we had growing up. That's the kind Mom made and I never had the opportunity or need to make real mashed potatoes.
That was until Pioneer Woman posted the recipe for those damn roasted garlic mashed potatoes. She ruined my life. Ruined my life. Because now I must have real mashed potatoes. I haven't used a flake since. And me and mashed potatoes go way back. I love potatoes of all shapes and sizes, but roasted garlic mashed potaotes? Hamana.
But do you know what a pain in the ass mashing potatoes is? Okay, the mashing part isn't TOO bad but the pealing takes forever. And it's messy. And time consuming.
So, when I spotted these at the grocery, I thought I would give them a try.
They are SO good. You must try them right now. While I will still make real mashed potatoes for special occasions and on all those days when I have tons of free time, these Bob Evans mashed potatoes have replaced the box of flakes in my cabinet. (Well, they really need to be refrigerated, but you get the idea.)
What are you doing still reading? Go buy these mashed potatoes!
