REVIEW – Reser’s Main St. Bistro: Mashed Potatoes from Costco
We tried some of the Main St. Bistro Mashed Potatoes from Costco one time and have been buying them ever since. These potatoes are neither lumpy nor mushy, but they are nice and creamy. They are especially delicious with Parmesan cheese added in. We sometimes freeze a package so it lasts longer (even though it says keep refrigerated), and it still tastes just as good.
This is how we usually cook the refrigerated mashed potatoes (both 26 oz boxes):
Warm up one of the mashed potatoes boxes in the microwave for 3 minutes Put the mashed potatoes from first box into a bowl Fold in shredded Parmesan cheese to taste while it's still warm (we usually use enough Parmesan cheese so that it covers the top of the potatoes) Warm up the second box of mashed potatoes in microwave for 2 minutes Add the mashed potatoes from the second box into the bowl Fold in more shredded Parmesan cheese to taste Let the bowl of mashed potatoes sit in the refrigerator overnight The next day (or same day) -- put the bowl of mashed potatoes in the oven (325 degrees F) for 45 minutes to 1 hour... and enjoy!
As a side note the easiest way to make these mashed potatoes is just following the microwave instructions on the box. It takes less than 10 minutes, and they still taste good.Food: Reser's Main St. Bistro Mashed Potatoes
