Betty Crocker Review and Giveaway

It's always nice to sit down to a dinner table filled with foods the whole family can enjoy, which is why the best kinds of side dishes are the ones that can be dressed up to satisfy everyone“s taste buds. For a quick and delicious side that will complete your favorite meals, stir up Betty Crocker® Potato Buds® mashed potatoes, made with 100% real potatoes.

I LOVE mashed potatoes.  I used to make them all the time... from scratch... with meatloaf or steak or chicken cutlets. Mmm, I'm getting hungry! But, the fact of the matter is that making mashed potatoes from scratch is time consuming. Ugh... how I used to hate to peel all of those potatoes! So, with a little one on the move mashed potatoes have not been made from scratch in a very long time. But that doesn't mean that they still can't be a part of our dinner menu!

My Blog Spark and Betty Crocker recently gave me the opportunity to review Betty Crocker's Potato Buds! These potatoes are super easy and quick to make. And they fluff up so nicely!

Some of the things that I love about Potato Buds is that you can always have them on hand for when you need them, you can make as much or as little as you need, and you can add all kinds of things to prepare your mashed potatoes they way you like them! I love to add sour cream and cheddar cheese into the mix! Betty Crocker also has tons of yummy recipes for you to look at on their website.

I like my mashed potatoes locked and loaded. This is everything I add to mine.

red onion (Chopped)
sharp cheddar cheese (grated)
Sour Cream
mashed roasted garlic
butter
bacon bits
chopped Cilantro (as a garnish)

I don't eat them often, but when I do they are loaded.

I like them plain with lots of butter and pepper. Or sometimes with cheddar, chives and bacon bits. :-)
