A recent Bob Evans survey confirmed that mashed potatoes are one of the top three favorite side dishes of parents, single adults, and children alike.

67% of respondents said they serve or eat mashed potatoes at least once a month, and 41% said they would be more likely to serve mashed potatoes if they did not have to make the dish from scratch. Bob Evans provides mashed potato side dishes that taste homemade but only take six minutes in the microwave and can be used to create other recipes.

BobEvansGrocery.com has a variety of recipes consumers can make with the help of Bob Evans Farms' mashed potato products, that are ideal to celebrate National Potato Lovers Month. The favorites are Baked Potato Pizza, Chicken Shepherd’s Pie and Crunchy Jalapeno Potato Poppers.

Here are additional findings from the Bob Evans survey:

  • 67% of the respondents serve/eat mashed potatoes at least once a month.
  • 71% of respondents with children serve/eat mashed at least once a month.
  • 46% of respondents with kids are likely to serve mashed more frequently if they don't have to make them from scratch, than respondents without kids (39%).
  • 45% of Millennials and 42% of Gen X are likely to serve mashed more frequently if they don't have to make them from scratch, than Baby Boomers (37%).

Bob Evans Farms is celebrating National Potato Lovers Month this February with their traditional side dishes and special recipes.

According to the National Potato Commission, Americans eat an average of 117 pounds of potato products annually.
