Simply Potatoes Review & Giveaway (#simplyfied)


We received two Simply Potatoes coupons in order to try two of their products for review.  I have purchased the hash brown potatoes several years ago and while I enjoyed them, I wanted to try something new and different this time around.  Before heading to the grocery store, I checked out to familiarize myself with some of the product choices and look for recipe ideas.  I was VERY excited to see an appealing recipe for Shephard’s Pie.
 I have recently started making this dish at home and thought the Simply Potatoes version would definitely simplify the recipe and reduce the prep time for the recipe.  Sadly, when I got to the grocery store, I found that they do not carry that particular type of mashed potatoes.  I tried not to let that dishearten me too much and chose to pick up a package of the Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of the Diced Potatoes with Onion.  Yum!
 Upon reexamining the website, I discovered a couple of delicious sounding recipes for the Diced Potatoes with Onion.  The Bacon and Potato Chowder sounded like a really good cold day recipe.  Ironically, the week that I was making these recipes was unseasonably warm with temperatures reaching the mid-70’s, so chowder wasn’t what I was looking for.  I’ll keep that recipe in mind for a cold day.  Being as I live in upstate New York, I know there will be many more to come.
Using the Classic Potato Salad recipe as inspiration.  I prepared the potatoes according to that recipe and then added my favorite potato salad dressing and fixings.  The salad was really tasty!  I LOVE potatoes, but really despise cutting and peeling them.  Making potato salad is one of my least favorites… or I should say it WAS.  I will use the Simply Potatoes in the future to make potato salad.  While they are pricey compared to a full bag of potatoes, I would happily use those for the occasional potato salad.
Rather than using the Steakhouse Potatoes in a recipe, I decided to try them on their own as part of a breakfast.  They are extremely easy to prepare and very delicious.  They have a bit of a kick to them, but definitely not overpowering.  I can definitely see me using these potatoes in the future in order to make the ‘diner breakfast’ at home.  Yum!
