Eagle, Idaho (January 7, 2016) -- The Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is ringing in the new year with three new recipes that use frozen Idaho® potatoes to put a time-saving and tasty spin on classic winter favorites. With frozen Idaho® potatoes, anyone can prepare delicious and hearty dinners in no time.
“The recipes were created to help home cooks find new uses for frozen Idaho® potatoes that help reduce time in the kitchen without sacrificing flavor,” explained Frank Muir, President and CEO, IPC. “There are literally dozens of frozen Idaho® potato products that can be incorporated into any meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner. The key is to look for the famous ‘Grown in Idaho’ seal on the packaging.”
Each new recipe uses a different frozen Idaho® potato product:
Rustic Idaho® Potato-Onion Soup is a mouth-watering recipe that combines frozen hash browns, which cook right in the soup, and a savory onion-broth.
Below is the recipe for Rustic Idaho® Potato-Onion Soup, which can be found on the IPC website along with Perky Idaho® Potato Meatloaf and Filipino Beef Estofado.

Cook’s Tip: For Variation, lightly toast the bread in the broiler (being careful not to burn), then top each piece with cheese and run under broiler again until slightly melted before placing on top of soup.
