October 28, 2020

The team at CHEF'STORE thanks Idahoan® for their sponsorship and for sharing this delicious recipe with us.

Creamy, savory mashed potatoes without having to take all the time to peel, chop, and mash? Idahoan® knows you have better things to do with your time, especially when it comes to holiday cooking! 

Idahoan® was born in 1951 when a local group of Idaho potato growers came together and started a potato dehydration plant. 

In 1990 the company developed their innovative proprietary dehydration process that preserves the homegrown taste of potatoes as well as their texture. 

Their wide variety of products are known for their quality ingredients and homemade taste.

If you’re ready to step up your mashed potato game for your holiday meal, this recipe is for you! 

Not only does it include red potatoes, bacon, and blue cheese, you can cook it all in one pot!
