It just so happened I had chicken with a mushroom sauce planned for dinner that week and I was running behind on getting it ready so an easy-peasy, last second side dish came in handy... and there it was, right in my pantry!
One of the things I look for on the labels of our food is the sugar content. I was happy to see the Idahoan Signature Russet Mashed Potatoes had just 1 gram of sugar.
The instructions are quick and easy and the ingredients you need to add are just water, butter and milk. In the time it takes to bring it to a boil on the stove or microwave and let it set for 1 minute more, you can have hot, filling and tasty 'taters' on the table.
Flavor was great - not a traditional homemade from scratch taste, but still very yummy. And we do butter in our house; real butter - so some butter, salt and pepper is all we used to season and was all it needed to pair perfectly with the chicken and mushroom sauce being served along side.
Instructions were easy:
- Heat 1 2/3 cups water and 2 Tablespoons of butter to a boil (I did this in the microwave)
- Remove from heat, stir in 1/3 cup cold milk, then stir in potatoes. Let stand one minute.
- Mix with fork or wire whip and serve.
