Review & Giveaway ♥ Betty Crocker

I LOVE Mashed Potatoes!!! They are one of my favorite comfort foods when I am feeling under the weather and a favorite side dish at our house. I am definitely a meat and potato kind of gal! But I will admit I hate to mash them. That is where hubby comes in!!!

I was contacted recently about a review for Betty Crocker® Potato Buds® mashed potatoes, made with 100% real potatoes. They were given to me from Betty Crocker through MyBlogSpark.

They are ready in just five minutes - great when you don't really like to cook or Mash real potatoes! And they taste so good! I am not kidding!

I made them the other night with these great chicken fried steak fingers I found at the store that comes with a packet of gravy mix ~ another great invention I love since I have NO ability to make gravy on my own :(

I usually ask hubby if the dinner is OK - to see if the meal is a "yes make this again" or "skip this next time" to see if he noticed anything different about the potatoes.
He said they were really creamy - of course I just smiled.
"Are these the box potatoes you got?" he asked.
"Yes," I answered sheepishly...
"Umm, they're pretty good. I couldn't tell the difference."

YES! I pulled it off! If my hubby can't tell the difference - then trust me - they are good!!

There are some great looking recipes that I want to still try - including Beef Pot Pie with Potato Biscuit Crust and Italian Hamburger Deep Dish.
Betty Crocker Potato Buds are also gluten-free, and they have a few recipes I wouldn't mind trying like Potato-Crusted Salmon and Cheesy Broccoli-Potato Soup.
Please visit http://www.bettycrocker.com/ and http://www.liveglutenfreely.com/ for full lists of recipes.
