Product Review: Can you mash potato...

The Ore-Ida Company has now given us a quick way to have mashed potatoes...


Super fast! All you do is place this bag of potatoes in the microwave for ten minutes. Yes, the whole bag. No cutting! No scrubbing! Then place them in a bowl and mix'em up. I, of course, added a 1/2 stick butter and some half'n'half...because I believe that's how God intended us to eat mashed potatoes. On sale they run about $2.99 a bag. Oh, and they taste great, too.

My friend has been telling me about these for a long time. I forget to look for them at the store. At least now I have a visual. Thanks!

Well, at first this home made mashed potato girl didn't know what to think about this product. However, if it's frozen potatoes in a bag...that's really pretty smart. Save time peeling potatoes (which I detest doing) and get what seems to be the real deal in the end. Also, this will hopefully deter those who insist on using those nasty potato flaky things from trying to pass them off as good and real. Cause they're not.

My only issue is the microwaving them in the bag (cause of all the cancer causing reports) could you put them in the PC Micro-steamer instead??? I might try them then... but the whole plastic bag thing freaks me out.
