in 1960 to be exact, a group of enterprising and energetic souls started a company named, appropriately, Idahoan® Foods, with the single-minded goal of producing the planet’s best tasting instant mashed potatoes from those famous Idaho russets. Only 50 people were on the payroll that first year, and yet more than five million pounds of dehydrated potatoes were processed and sold. From that auspicious beginning, Idahoan® has continued to grow and prosper. Today the company employs nearly 500 people during the production season and is one of the worlds leading producers of dehydrated potatoes. While all that success is pretty grand, the real story behind Idahoan® is the people who work here. They’ll tell you they only know one thing: potatoes.
When you try one of our quality products, whether it’s our famous original mashed potatoes or our new flavored mashed, we know you’re going to love them. Because back here in Lewisville, Idaho, some bull-headed Idahoan wouldn’t accept anything but the best. And they don’t want you to, either.
I received samples of all three of the new Idahoan Homestyle Casseroles – Au Gratin, . The casseroles were easy to make, they can be baked or made on the stove. Baking takes about 30 minutes. We made ours on the stove, which takes about 20 minutes. The package contains sliced potatoes and a packet of sauce mix. To make the casseroles you just add margarine or butter, water, and milk to the potatoes and cook according to the instructions.
We found all three of the casseroles to be really good. CJ absolutely loved them. RB and I found them to be as good as homemade, and agreed that the Au Gratin was our favorite.
ONE winner will receive a basket containing Idahoan Homestyle Casseroles, pot holders, a mini whisk and a bowl.
