Lunchtime? PotatOH Time!

The biggest problem with lunchtime is that it happens right in the middle of the day. When we’re usually pretty busy, and hungry. Right?! That’s why we want something fast, fuss-free, and filling enough to keep us out of the candy bowl. Well, PotatOHs are the perfect answer. They’re:


1) Fast and Easy

All you need is a microwave and in less than 7 minutes you’re tucking in to wholesome, healthy, hot lunch. Just pack some of this-and-that from your fridge (think broccoli, cheddar cheese, peppers, salsa, sour cream or non-fat yogurt, butter, asparagus, lemon, steak sauce, ham or turkey or anything else that sounds tempting). Top your cooked PotatOH treasure with whatever you’ve got and you’re good to go. 


2) Convenient and Cost-Effective

You can take a PotatOH anywhere. It doesn’t cost very much. It won’t spill. And it won’t spoil in a single day, either. So it’s not surprising we know some penny-smart people who stash PotatOHs at work, then pair them up or top them off with less expensive stuff from the to-go menu, like chili or clam chowder, a side salad or a baked chicken breast. The PotatOH helps fill you up healthfully and save some cash, too.


3) Healthy

Don’t forget, potatoes are always naturally cholesterol, fat, gluten and sodium-free. Whew! Also, with just 110 calories, they have 45% of your Daily Value of vitamin C, and lots of potassium and fiber. Just pay attention to what you pile on top!

Perfect Potato Recipes for Memorial Day Celebrations

Memorial Day Cookout

On Memorial Day, we take time to honor the brave men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. We also welcome warm weather as the summer season begins, and for those us lucky enough to have the day off from work, it’s a perfect day to get together with family and friends and enjoy a good meal or two.

Whether you’re going to a park for a barbecue or a picnic, heading outdoors and camping, or staying indoors, here are great potato recipes perfect for your Memorial Day celebrations, including potato meals, potato pairings, side dishes and potato salads.

BBQ At The Park or Camping

What better way to bring in summertime than with a BBQ at the park? You can throw some potatoes on the grill for a delicious toasted and smokey flavor, bake them in foil, or bring along a potato salad as a side dish to meat and chicken. And if you’re going camping, just because you’re roughin’ it doesn’t mean you have to eat rough. Cook some of these at home and bring them with you, or pack up the ingredients and heat them up on a campfire.

There’s something for everyone, including vegetable and meat dishes, a fun and spicy twist on mashed potatoes, and a pesto salad with plenty of zing.
