Will be trying some instant spuds when camping in the summer. You guys have convinced me to at least TRY 'em.


We eat potatoes in a wide variety of ways (used to grow acres of them to sell at Farmers Markets and to regular customers all winter (big root cellars for them and carrots, cabbage, turnips, parsnips etc!).


Dudley said I should invite you up to see the outstanding beauty of northern Saskatchewan - so consider this an invite! Actually the southern part is quite outstanding too - prairie in all its glory.

I'd like to say, I was not trying to convince you to eat instant potatoes. I was trying to explain the folly of making your own instant potatoes - the work involved and the cost of electricity.
I think the passion now is for fresh, locally grown produce - gluten free.

I bought a box of Idahoan Instant Potatoes. Served them while camping with three teenage grandsons at Prince Albert National Park and they loved them. One said he is going to make his mum buy them because they are better than her regular mashed potatoes! ¥

Happy to hear they liked he Idahoans. I get the packages rather than the box but a package wouldn't feed three teenagers so you probably did right. I get them at Giant Tiger and they carry about 5 different flavours. They are small and light, easy to carry in our boler without taking up much room and don't grow stuff in the hot humid weather.
Also, I've used them for a mashed potatoe salad when it's too hot to cook potatoes. I made potatoe latkes (pancakes) and I have also used them for a cream cheese and sour cream potato "bake" by simply replacing the boiled and mashed potatoes the recipe calls for.
I have family in both Sask, and Manitoba and yes it is beautiful out there. That big sky is simply amazing.
happy camping

Well now there you go! I read through the conversation and thought...man...what a lot of work for potatoes!

The wife and I do it a little differently. We never "boondock" (I have but not her) so most of the time, we'll travel VERY light (can goods etc) and go to a local grocery store somewhere upon arrival. I'd MUCH rather do this than haul 100lbs + worth of groceries!!

I also use the packaged Idahoans when it's way too hot to turn the stove on (like right now in Southern Ontario) - to make creamy mashed potatoe Salad. We like the mashed potatoes in a salad rather than the chunky and if you do too, I'll gladly share if you want the recipe.

Inviting the posting of recipes using instant mashed potatoes. I've never even heard of a salad with mashed ones. Wondering how they'd work for potato soup?

My family always preferred creamy potato salad, rather than chunky. Matter of taste for everyone, but here's the recipe using the Idahoans. I may try making potato soup with them now that you have suggested it. I'll let you know if I do. Bon Appetit.

Salad: Instant Idahoan Potato Salad

1- 113g Pkg Buttery Herb Idahoan Instant potatoes made with 2 cups boiling water as per instructions. (or measure out 113g from boxed Idahoans. I haven’t tried the other flavours of this product yet)

1 cup Hellman’s Mayo or Mayo lite
1 Tbsp prepared yellow mustard
1 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
1 Tbsp splenda or white sugar
¼ cup sweet relish
Pepper to taste (there’s enough salt in the packaged potatoes)

Whip everything together and let set in refrigerator until cold.
Option: top with sliced boiled eggs, lemon slices, mint leaves etc. as preferred.

Funnnnnnnnnnnnyy! Different strokes for different folks. I already know what you think about "living with chemistry". But it works for me.

Actually, I keep several cans of small white cooked potatoes on hand. They come whole or sliced. Drain the can, pat dry the potatoes, wrap in foil with garlic cloves and salt and pepper and place on the BBQ ( medium ) for 20 to 30 minutes.
Also great for pan fry using bacon grease, salt and pepper, red and yellow pepper.
