Back to School Basics

Whether you’re dreading the first day of school or counting the hours til the school bus rounds the corner, it’s an extremely busy time of year!

One way to stay ahead of the curve is by meal-planning. And you guessed it, the Idaho Potato Commission has an awesome collection of recipes that are kid-friendly and sophisticated enough for adults – let’s face it, we need to eat healthy to keep up with the kids!

Potatoes are one of the most versatile vegetables in the produce department so no matter what you’re in the mood for, potatoes will probably star as a main ingredient. Bowls are one of the trendiest foods right now, and here’s one the kids will love, Smashed Idaho Potato Barbecue Chicken Bowl – buttery smashed potatoes topped with tender chunks of chicken coated in a sweet and subtly spicy barbecue sauce. Yum!

Below are a few of our other favorites. Enjoy!
