How about a classic Shepherd's Pie? This recipe claims to be a great "one-pan meal" but let's not forget the extra pots and pans that goes into cooking the meat, and boiling the potatoes. Instead of dirtying another dish, use Minute Mashers™ for the mashed potatoes and make your Shepherd's Pie in a fraction of the time.

Have you ever had pierogies? They're basically a mashed potato dumpling and they are a serious mouth-party! To make easy pierogis at home you'll only need three ingredients: wonton wrappers, egg, and Minute Mashers™. Make the Minute Mashers™ according to directions (to reiterate, it's only seven minutes) then beat one egg in a small bowl. Brush the edges of the wonton wrappers lightly with the egg wash and add mashed potatoes to center of wonton wrappers – about 1-2 tablespoons. Gently fold the wrapper in half and press edges to seal. In an oiled pan on medium heat, add pierogies and cook until golden-brown and crispy. Drain cooked pierogies on a paper towel. VOILA! You can also add ingredients like bacon, cheese, or onions for a mix of flavors.

Onto one our favorite ways to use Minute Mashers™Mashed Potato Cakes! These are the perfect side-dish to eggs for breakfast or alongside meatloaf for dinner. Cook Minute Mashers™ and mash well until they are super soft and creamy. Add Minute Mashers™ to a bowl and mix with parmesan cheese, flour, and one egg until mashed potatoes are quite thick. Heat an oiled skillet on medium then add about a 1/4 cup of mashed potato mixture then pat with a spatula into a patty. Cook each mashed potato patty until golden brown and crispy on both sides. Serve them with ketchup, sour cream, or hot sauce. YUM!

All three flavors of Minute Mashers™ would be perfect for any of these recipe: Buttery Chive & Dill, Buttery Sea Salt & Pepper, or Buttery Roasted Garlic. Which one will you choose?

  1. ☆The Mashed Potato Cakes & Pierogies sound divine☆. Always wanted to try a Shepherd Pie, but will need to look up a vegetarian version. Hungry just thinking about it♡.

  2. I just bought a bag and I’m super confused. I’ve read the directions and watched you tube videos and nothing says anything about the top part of the bag. There’s obviously something in it. I assume it’s the seasonings. On YT, all of the videos show only the bottom part of the bag. There’s no explanation anywhere. What are you supposed to do with the top part?

    • Hi Becky! We know it’s easy to overthink it because we’re so used to complicated recipes, but it’s really as simple as placing the ENTIRE bag in the microwave and then mashing together! No need to separate the top or bottom of the bag – it’s all part of the ease of this product. 🙂 Just follow the directions on the bag and that’s it!

  3. My boyfriend was confused about the separation in the bag (the lower part contains potatoes and the upper part holds the seasonings), so he cut the top part off before microwaving. The bag opened when in the microwave and made a bit of a mess. We were still able to mash the potatoes and after that we added the seasonings. They were very good, but the mess in the microwave was a hassle. I looked at the bag after and saw that it didn’t mention anything about the two part bag. Possibly add that to the directions so it is clearer to people how it works. Just a suggestion!

    • Oh no! Sorry to hear you had trouble. The beauty of this product is that you don’t have to cut, vent, or do anything prior to microwaving. Just follow the easy directions and put the whole bag in the microwave. No mess and no fuss!

  4. I don’t even think I have seen these in stores yet! I definitely love this idea and want to try this for me and the family!! But i’ll just tell them that I made it LOL.
