Loud enough for the people in the back, “Being a parent is a full-time job!” Between trying to take care of yourself, your family, your work, and other responsibilities even simple tasks can seem so overwhelming. After a long day of juggling it all, the last thing you want to do is take out the pots, pans, ingredients, and spices. Then you’ll have to chop, slice, dice, and prep everything before you even get started cooking. Not to mention watching water boil! Who has time for that??

Say hello to your new favorite kitchen companion: Minute Mashers™. These real and fresh potatoes are grown by the trusted farmers from Green Giant™ Fresh, and this new product offers hot, delicious, and ready-to-eat mashed potatoes in just seven minutes! No pots or pans, no waiting for the water to boil, no slicing or dicing ingredients – just simplicity and fresh ingredients for your family.

Put your doubts aside – Minute Mashers™ aren’t made with flaked or powdered potatoes, or any other kind of weird “potato product.” Inside the bag are real, farm-fresh potatoes, real butter, real herbs, and real chef-inspired seasonings! Just take a look at those clean ingredients on the Buttery Sea Salt & Pepper package, for example: potatoes, clarified butter, sea salt, white pepper. Heaven!

Here’s how it works: just pop the whole package in the microwave and set the cook-time for seven minutes. No need to prep, puncture the package, stir half-way through cooking, add seasoning packets, or spend time with lengthy instructions. Pinch me! Just let the Minute Mashers™ work their magic in the microwave and grab your oven mitts when they’re done cooking.

Now, for the fun part!

Get the kiddos involved and let them help with dinner – because you deserve some help! Place the Minute Mashers™ package onto your counter or a dish towel, and with your oven mitts on, start mashing! You’ll feel the real potatoes in the package begin to crush and mash and mix together with the butter and seasonings. Keep mashing until potatoes have reached your desired consistency. That’s the beauty of this product! If you like lumpy mashed potatoes, do a light mash. But if you like creamier mashed potatoes, keep mashing a bit longer. And it’s FUN!

Once your Minute Mashers™ are mashed to your liking, just open the package and pour hot mashed potatoes into your serving dish. The mashed potatoes slide right out of the package and onto your plate and you don’t have to fumble with scraping or scooping them out of the package.

Yes, the product is super easy to use, quick, and made with real ingredients. But, let’s talk about flavor for a second! These potatoes are seasoned to perfection! You can choose from Buttery Chive & Dill, Buttery Sea Salt & Pepper, or Buttery Roasted Garlic. The kids will love digging in to these delicious and flavorful mashed potatoes.

From all of us trying to be more mindful about our health in these strange times, we’re grateful to Green Giant™ Fresh for creating a super easy product that takes the prep and work out of cooking healthy meals for you and your family.
