Homemade is not bad, of course there's a good amount of butter involved.

I've had riced cauliflower and found it quite good. But then, I like cauliflower, so...there's that. And yeah...mucho butter required.

While I really like home made mashed potatoes, no question that cauliflower is great too. And FWIW there's spaghetti squash that can be used a whole bunch of ways. Love the stuff!

Agreed! The problem with spaghetti squash is that they are like zucchini. Only plant one of them unless you want the whole neighborhood to have a supply. Wink Big Grin

Hard to believe one plant could put out that many squash. Sheesh!

Yep. Wife bought them once, out of the refrigerated case, and now that is all we ever have and I am not complaining. The only time we have home made mashed potatoes is Christmas.

Back in the mid 70s I moved out after I bought my own house. I made myself mashed potatoes from the box and yes the boxed stuff is much better now than back then.

For us mashed potatoes lovers, we live in good times. Smile

Mash potato's are cheap, easy to make and taste good. Potatoes have a shelf life of only @2-4 weeks (depending, you can get more if you are a root celler owner).

Box potato's are cheap, easy to make and taste good. Potatoes have a shelf life of @12-24 months but I bet they'd be good 10 years later.

Also, the boxed hash browns are also excellent emergency food. They store at room temp for years and taste great.

I am considering starting a business: Three Grandmothers and a Senior Van, who will come to your home and cook mashed potatoes.

Yea, just on a whim and partly to stock some emergency food supplies, I suggested the wife try some instant mashed potatoes. You know, for emergencies and the occasional quick easy meal.

She picked up some "Idahoan Mashed Potatoes" at Walmart. They were actually OK, very edible at least. I guess instant potatoes have come a long way and I made the mistake of telling the wife that.

Now, we have always often had mashed potatoes... but I haven't seen a real one at home in a year!

Cheap... ~99 cent for a package that is rated for 4 servings.
Several flavors to choose from.
Easy... just add water.
Fast... microwave, 3-4 min.

Guess I can't blame her, but she even served them Thanksgiving to our 17 guest!

Oh well, I have self inflicted, again. Roll Eyes
We tried that same brand the other day . My wife added just a little milk and some butter and they were pretty damn good . Supper quick .

You might want to include Betty Crocker mashed potatoes along with he Idahoan brand. They are actually a little better, in fact, as they call for milk and butter and don't take any longer to prepare.

wife brought that crap home a week or so ago,

I'm a mashed potato purist myself of course.
But...we have a little farm to table cafe close by that recently served cauliflower mashed potatoes (think it was a hybrid/combo with part real potatoes).
They were freakin awesome!
