Raised on Meat and McCain Potatoes

Ever since I was a little girl I can remember my dad insisting that our meals include both meat AND potatoes.  My mom would try to occasionally sneak in a meal with neither and although he would eat it, he would complain the entire time about not having meat and potatoes.  It is amazing how, as we grow up we carry on those traditions in our own lives.  Nearly every meal I make has meat and some sort of potato side dish and McCain brand potatoes have become our potato of choice.

McCain All Natural Potatoes

The main reason why McCain has become a staple in our home is because of their flavor.  Since their products are made from all natural potatoes there isn’t any chemical taste and the texture is that of REAL potatoes.  We always have a bag of Purely Potatoes®, Whole Baby Skin-On Potatoes in our freezer because they are so versatile.  Not only can we make a quick thing of mashed potatoes, but we can roast them with rosemary, garlic, and olive oil.  This year I’m even thinking of using them for Thanksgiving since I have so many other dishes that I need to make…

Real, all-natural potatoes, made real easy! Our whole baby potatoes, in their steamable microwaveable bag, are perfect to use in place of fresh produce potatoes for all your homemade potato recipes. Just steam, roast, mash, boil or bake them and season to taste. And best of all, there’s no prep work! NO washing, NO cutting, NO waste and NO effort!

The Whole Baby Skin-On Potatoes aren’t the only product that McCain makes that we enjoy.  Some of our other favorites include:

Tip: If you have small kids you have to treat them to the McCain Smiles!  What little one wouldn’t love sitting down to a plate full of smiles?  These are great to use for birthday parties and other special events.  Someone having a bad day?  Deep fry or bake (for healthier option) a batch of SMILES!

  3. I too was raised on meat and taters but I don’t think I’ve ever had this brand. I think my kids would like the Smiles.
