Contest Now Closed / Another Give-Away!

Recently I was contacted by MyBlogSpark to see if I would like to try out Betty Crocker Loaded Mashed Potatoes and offer the same for one of my readers. I will admit, I am normally a "make it from scratch kinda girl", but I thought I would give these a try.

I will say that I was quite pleased at a few things:

  • These are so easy to prepare, just boil some water, milk and butter, and whip the potato flakes in.
  • They are pretty tasty, because they have goodies like, bacon, chives, cheese and sour cream already in them.
  • The package contains two pouches, which is enough for husband and I to have for two meals.
Now, I will tell you that I added a bit more butter, and then put some shredded cheese on top, which I thought was pretty good, but husband wishes I had left them alone.

I was pleased to know that they are made with 100% real russet potatoes!

In addition to the Loaded Mashed Potatoes, I also received all of the items pictured, which include a very nice selection of kitchen items.

I was provided all of these items and information about the product from Betty Crocker through MyBlogSpark, as well as an identical package to give away.

So, here's the deal-

If you would like to win a package which includes the Betty Crocker Loaded Mashed Potatoes, mixing bowl, measuring cup, magnetic pot holder and a silicone spoonula, then I need you to do the following:

Post a comment to this blog telling me what meal you love to eat mashed potatoes with!

I MUST have your email address in your entry, any entries without an email address will be dis-qualified.

The contest ends on Friday night April 15.

Good luck!

In my house mashed potatoes go with pretty much everything. They go really well with pork chops, corn, and applesauce.

I love them with so many things, but one of the best has to have been my mom's meat loaf with her homemade mashed potatoes and gravy. She's not able to make them any more and boy, do I ever miss them!

I have to be honest I've never found mashed potatoes that I like. They have to have a lot of flavor and a good texture or I won't eat them. I'm not sure why because like Jess I'm a carb addict myself! I love potatoes sliced, baked, fried, even hash browns and tater tots but there's just something about mashed that I get picky about. Maybe these would change my mind?

I love to eat mashed potatoes with either a turkey or with poppyseed chicken, or a good steak off the grill. Couldn't choose just one =)
