As part of the holiday meal planning and entertaining portion of our holiday guide, today we’re featuring Simply Potatoes. These are perfect for those busy hectic meals during the holiday season, as well as for your traditional holiday meals, because they eliminate the hassle of peeling, boiling, slicing and dicing.

I was able to “Simply-fy” a favorite holiday dish, Potato Pancakes, by using a couple of varieties of Simply Potatoes and their website recipe (which I altered a bit for our family). I had the batter whipped up in no time, and we have a new recipe to enjoy a family tradition with now.


4 slices of pre-cooked bacon, cut into small pieces
2 cups Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns
2 cups Simply Potatoes Mashed Potatoes
1 cup all-purpose baking mix
1 cup shredded cheese
1 cup milk
2 eggs


In a large bowl stir together Simply Potatoes, baking mix, cheese and bacon. Stir in milk and egg just until moistened.

Heat margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Spoon generous amount of the batter into the skillet. Flatten slightly into pancakes. Cook each pancake until golden brown on each side.

This recipe made 12 large sized pancakes for us.

Simply Potatoes is available in a number of mashed and cut varieties, delicious right out of the microwave or added to your family’s favorite holiday dish.

  1. When did those steamables become available—I haven't seen them in the store yet and want to try those garlic ones.

  2. I would love to try any of the sweet potatoes. I've been on a sweet potato kick lately!
