I’m reorganizing my kitchen cabinets now that I finally have more than one. Unlike regular households, my pantry foodstuffs aren’t entirely organized by food types. Most cabinets are, but then there’s the “in season” Lazy Susan, which holds food that can be quickly prepared in lieu of fast food. College baseball practice begins in January and play starts four weeks later. Night comes early and regular meals are hard to come by. Or, at least the time to prepare regular meals is hard to come by.
That’s where Kroger 3 Cheese Potatoes With Cheese Sauce Mix comes in. This boxed set of dehydrated potatoes and sauce needs only a pat of butter, a wee bit of milk and a couple cups of boiling water. The dish can be prepared in the oven, the microwave or even the stove-top in about 20 minutes for any of the three methods.
The box indicates that this product is a good source of Vitamin C and Gluten-Free. What’s important to me is that it’s quick, flavorful, and frequently on sale for less than $1. Kroger makes a scalloped potato version, a sour cream type, and an au gratin version. Even at their regular price, these Kroger spuds are a great deal compared to the national brand. On sale, it’s time to fill up a cart.
