Alexia Red Potatoes with Garlic & Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

Author: Healthnuttxo

I went grocery shopping yesterday, and was looking at the frozen food aisle for something to make for dinner. Then I spotted it, mashed potatoes! I definitely wanted mashed potatoes for dinner. And how easy were these? All I had to do was cook them in the microwave, give em a stir and transfer to a bowl. I put them in my grocery cart, paid, and went home to cook.

I put them in the microwave for about 10 1/2 minutes, let them sit for a minute, and then put them in a bowl. I will admit it was a bit annoying to get all the mashed potatoes off of the bag once cooked, but I really couldn’t complain. I mean, I didn’t have to wash the potatoes, peel the potatoes, boil the potatoes, cook the potatoes, mash the potatoes, or even SEASON the potatoes. All I had to do was put them in the microwave. So, instead of complaining, I just transferred them to a bowl.

Here’s how it looked, straight from the bag!

one word. yummmmmy.

I served them up with my dinner. ย They were smooth and thick, with visible black pepper and red potato skins that added a little texture. I noticed they were a tad on the pasty side, which made them super thick, but still good, and hardly any bumps.

They had a garlic and cheesy flavor, with a noticeable black pepper flavor.They were just a tad on the salty side, but really quite good, and had a very rich flavor. They were really quite delicious, and I loved the natural ingredients.

I actually think the black pepper flavor was a bit too strong, but that certainly did not stop me from eating 2 servings of these mashed potatoes (; I also loved the convenience of these, I would certainly buy them again!ย 4 stars

Whats your favorite way to make homemade mashed potatoes? I like good ol’ butter and milk!

And as requested, here’s ย a pic of the nutritional facts

    Butter and milk is the only way to go! ๐Ÿ˜€ Most of the time I like to just mash the potato up and just add a bit of butter and nothing else because I like it clumpy rather than smooth.

    yea, i actually dont mind the bumps. I have friends, on the other hand, who will NOT eat mashed potatoes if they are bumpy! hahah so funny ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am a huge health nut and very conscious eater. I hate to buy potato products that are not organic. Potatoes are actually one of the most contaminated vegetables. To safely consume a traditional potato, you would need to thoroughly wash, peel, and boil them. I can’t bring myself to purchase items like this. I’d rather know my health is secure by taking the time to make my own. I even make my own “Miracle Whip”.

    Wow- props to you! Homemade is always better ๐Ÿ™‚

    I won’t eat mashed potatoes if they DON’T have lumps in them! So weird.
    This look good, but the red in there…is that your dinner? Because I see Macaroni, but if that red came with the potatoes…yikes ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    haha yep, the red is the skins from the red potatoes! and that’s not all of my dinner, it was just the bowl of mashed potatoes ๐Ÿ™‚
