Today, everyone has their own opinion about what is the right and wrong things to eat. There is a big push to eat clean and to cut processed foods out of your lives. I try but i’m not perfect. I can say while my kids have not eaten a box of macaroni and cheese since 2010. At the same time there are a handful of products we still keep on hand. Moderation is key. Plus  there is the fact I need to keep things around that my husband can easily make. Ore Ida potatoes are one of the things I keep around.  They are a quick and easy side for sandwiches and burgers and their hash browns are perfect when you don’t have the time to grate I huge pile of potatoes or you husband has a fear of you grating potatoes. Yes, my husband cannot be around when I use my mandolin. Ore Ida Hash Browns give my husband that little bit of piece of mind that i’m not chopping my hands off while making him things like Green Chile Hash Brown Casserole.

How do you use your Ore Ida potatoes? Here are a few way I have used Ore Ida while feeding my family:

Sweet Potato Fries were the perfect side for these sliders made with Johnsonville sausage.
