Dressing Up Idaho® Potato Side Dishes


I have some great variations on potatoes including one with wild mushrooms, several with cheese mixed in and even one with colorful vegetables blended in to give the mashed a real brightness. How can I dress up my Idaho® potato side dishes when they are served to a guest?


I have seen low cost versions of these cast iron or ceramic pots at some of the discount merchandisers such as Marshall’s, TJ Maxx or the Burlington Coat Factory. They really do make a potato dish special and have the added benefit of keeping the potatoes very warm for service.
