For Easter this year, my kids have their hearts set on going to the zoo, playing outside and hunting for Easter eggs (of course) – all as a family.  With fun family time a priority, I was looking to make changes to simplify our Easter menu with delicious results made easy. Fortunately, I discovered mashed potatoes made in minutes with a tasty twist with this Broccoli Cheddar Mashed Potatoes recipe.

Mashed potatoes are an essential for our holiday menus (and special Sunday dinners too!)  Since they are best enjoyed fresh, mashed potatoes end up being a labor of love saved for special occasions. Until now! I was recently introduced to Idahoan® Signature™ Russets Mashed Potatoes. Perfect mashed potatoes every time that take only minutes to make – yes please!

Idahoan®  Signature™ Russets Mashed Potatoes taste delicious cooked simply according to package directions. They have the smooth taste like original homemade mashed potatoes with just a hint of cream. The secret to their great taste are the six pounds of world-famous Idaho® potatoes found in every 16 oz. pouch! Since Idahoan® Signature™ Russets Mashed Potatoes are sold in a resealable pouch, which keeps the product fresh, you can create a Sunday mashed potato experience any day of the week!

They are delicious as-is, however I also found Idahoan®  Signature™ Russets Mashed Potatoes to serve as the perfect blank canvas for creative mashed potatoes, like this recipe for Broccoli Cheddar Mashed Potatoes.  It takes only an extra minute or so to add the mix-ins (in the case of this recipe, simply chopped broccoli and shredded cheddar cheese) to create a whole new side dish. Enjoy!
