Who's with me when I say, "I'm pretty tired of cooking!" The problem is that I still crave some of the more time-consuming comforting foods – like mashed potatoes! However, pulling out pots and waiting on boiling water, or softened potatoes, and adding all of the different ingredients milk and butter and cream and spices and everything that goes along with it can be quite time-consuming, if not overwhelming ... until now!

Say hello to your new favorite, comforting and delicious side-dish: Minute Mashers™. These real, 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, no waiting for the water to boil, nothin' but simplicity and real deliciousness!

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!

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.

Once your Minute Mashers™ are mashed to your liking, just open the package and pour hot mashed potatoes into your serving dish. I was surprised at how easily the mashed potatoes slid right out of the package and onto my plate – I didn'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, you want to 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. I'm a big fan of the Sea Salt & Pepper and love to serve these with a piece of grilled salmon or chicken!

From all of us trying to be more mindful about our health in these strange times, I'm giving a warm THANK YOU to Green Giant™ Fresh for creating a super easy product that takes the prep and work out of cooking healthy meals, and one that makes me just feel more comforted.

Happy cooking - or should I say mashing, y'all!

  1. My bag is split between two sections with a resealable zipper between the potatoes and the seasoning and no where on the bag does it mention what to do with the seasoning. What do you suggest??

    • Hi Spencer! No need to open the package at all before cooking. Just follow the instructions on the package and place the whole bag in the microwave.

  2. I was wondering if you could tell me where to find Minute mashers in Reno, Nevada. I really want to try them and I cannot find them.

  3. […] The Minute Mashers™ flavors are Buttery Roasted Garlic, Buttery Sea Salt & Pepper or Buttery. The beauty about Minute Mashers is that this is a no-fuss, easy to prepare, and yet real and mouth-watering mashed potatoes! It’s simple. Put the bag in for seven minutes, and then mash or smash (with mitts!) to the texture that you desire. I love the skin on them, the buttery richness and the flavor of these potatoes. Perfect comfort food or delicious side dish! […]

  4. Baby!! These potatoes are delicious!! You guys have really done it this time. I love that the potatoes are so easy to prepare 7 minutes! exactly. I have used them for dinner and breakfast like my own personal twist on potatoes OBrian. I hope you add more different flavors and combo possibly cheese and bacon? The only thing I would recommend is making bigger bags. Maybe like a family size or deluxe size and maybe even personal size for people to take to work?? Just wanted to let you guys know these potatoes are awesome and I will be buying more!!

  5. My bag doesn’t look like what they have in the YouTube video nor they add. The seasoning and butter is separate. Directions do not say what do do with them. Should it be added before steaming. Directions totally disregards separate seasoning packet.

    • Ho Shantelle! Just follow the directions and place the entire package in the microwave! When you smash and mash, the butter and seasonings are mixed into the potatoes. 🙂 No need to remove to separate anything! It’s all done right in the bag.

    • Hi, Lana! Store Minute Mashers the exact same way you would with a regular bag of fresh potatoes – in a cool, dark place like your pantry is perfect!

    • Uh-Oh! Since these are fresh potatoes, we can’t promise whether or not these will reheat the same after being placed in the freezer. Our suggestion is to allow the potatoes to fully thaw and give it a try. Hope it works out and keep us posted!

  6. OMG! Thank you green giant. I used to buy Oreda Steam snd mash. I loved them till the stores stopped carrying them.
    Yours are even better! Thank you once again for making cooking potatoes a pleasure,

  7. Do seasoning and potatoes need to be separated? Having trouble figuring out the two separate sections on the bag. ??

    • Hi, Jodi! You don’t need to separate anything, add seasoning packets, etc. Everything (including the seasoning) is included in the bag…just put the whole package in the microwave and mash in the bag. The mashing will help to distribute seasoning. It’s super easy!

      • My bag does not look the same as those in your blog and on videos. There is a hard plastic zipper, inside the bag, between the seasoning section and the fresh potato section and the zipper is closed. Are you suggesting that the zipper will open while the potatoes are steaming and essentially combine the two sections together? If so, that’s great, but I want be sure the bag won’t bust in my microwave.

        • Hi, DJ! Please follow the directions exactly that are on the package. The package is meant to be microwaved. 🙂
