Simply Potatoes Review and Giveaway

Simply Potatoes

This giveaway is now closed

Make Life Special is all about recipes that are quick and simple to make with ingredients that are readily available.  I was asked to review “Simply Potatoes”  and I can wholeheartedly recommend this product.  Simply Potatoes can “Simply-fy” potato dishes by eliminating the hassle of peeling, boiling, slicing and dicing, while still giving you the potato dishes you love!  Simply Potatoes are made from fresh, never frozen potatoes.  So, that means you also don’t have the extra step of thawing them when using them in a recipe such as Vickie’s Hearty Breakfast Skillet.

I used the Simply Potatoes O’Brien Hash Browns in my  Hearty Breakfast Skillet.

Vickie's Hearty Breakfast Skillet 2

Simply Potatoes has a great website with lots of recipes….and they have a contest going on right now for a year’s supply of Simply Potatoes.  Simply Potatoes Website.
