Simply Potaotes - Simply Delicious!

I love Potatoes!  Fried Potatoes, Mashed Potatoes, Potato Salad, Baked Potatoes... well you get the idea!  The only problem I have with potatoes is there's some work involved to make them yummy!

Enter Simply Potatoes!  They take a lot of the work out, and leave you with yummy potatoes!  I love Simply Pototoes because that's what they are... potatoes.  Not instant, not fake, simply potatoes!

They have lots of different products like Southwest Style Hashbrowns, Sour Cream and Chives Mashed Potatoes, Diced Potatoes with Onion, Red Potato Wedges, and Macaroni and Cheese to name just a few.

We tried the Diced Potatoes with Onion.  I had big plans to make potato salad, but when I opened the package to get started, my kids saw the potatoes and immediately wanted friend potatoes.  So, I made Fried Potatoes.
I just dumped them into the fry pan, added a little oil, and voila!

It was so incredibly easy, and so incredibly delicious!  We paired it with grilled chicken and corn on the cob!  What a feast!

Simply Potatoes has some great recipes.  Here's one I'm trying next:

 Santa Fe Potato Salad


Salad Ingredients:
  • 1 package Simply Potatoes® Diced Potatoes with Onion
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 can (15.25 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 can (2 1/4 ounces) sliced black olives
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes
Dressing Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 package (1.25 ounces) taco seasoning mix

Instructions:

1. Combine Simply Potatoes and water in 4-quart microwave safe casserole dish. Cover; microwave on HIGH 10 to 12 minutes until potatoes are tender. Place Simply Potatoes in extra large bowl. Add corn, celery, carrots, red pepper, olives and tomatoes.

2. Meanwhile combine all dressing ingredients in small bowl. Whisk to combine. Pour over Simply Potatoes mixture. Stir gently. Refrigerate 1 hour to blend flavors. 


I really am excited about Simply Potatoes!  I plan to have lots of different varieties in my freezer and fridge so I have them on hand to make lots of yummy things very quickly!

It's hard to pick a favorite, because I love potatoes in so many ways, but I'll pick mashed potatoes.

When it's cold I like cheesey potato casserole, but in the summer I take the simply potato homestyle and add onions, garlic powder, and drizzle with evoo and wrap in tin foil and put on the grill. YUM. Thanks for the opportunity. kimberley_22(at)yahoo(dot)com

My favorite potato dish is stewed potatoes. Slice and dice and throw in pot with onions and cook until potatoes are smashed and add a little barbecue sauce or ketchup and enjoy.saltpepper1_2000@yahoo.com
