Mashtini- Fun Food from @BobEvansFarms GIVEAWAY

August 19th is National Potato Day, and our friends at Bob Evans have some fun recipes for you to try out. So cute- Martini’s with mashed potatoes instead of alcohol. We even did a “kiddie” version, my son loved it. Instead of the harsh alcohol with syrup-y sweet flavors why not try some awesome Bob Evans mashed potato recipes like, Sweet Swirl Mashtini, Mediterranean mashed, and the incredible Bob Evans Wildfire Mashtini (which is the one we did).

With the right ingredients and some Bob Evans mashed potatoes, anything is possible. Carbonara mashed potatoes, or a Club Mashtini both with crispy bacon- and what’s not better with bacon, I ask you?

Here are a few of the fun recipes:
