These special, summer-themed mashed potatoes are made from a base of already-prepared, creamy mashed potatoes.  The mashed potatoes are combined with a few goodies to turn them into a little something special.  It’s such an easy fix to jazz up classic mashed potatoes!

I’ve partnered with Bob Evans Foods to create a few recipes showing you what you can do with their line of refrigerated side dishes.  Bob Evans’ sides are the #1 selling refrigerated side dish in the country.  They’re great on their own or as the basis for quick, easy and delicious recipes.

Bob Evans’ line of mashed potato refrigerated sides are what I’m focused on today.  I used their Garlic Mashed Potatoes for this recipe.  They’re made with real potatoes, real milk and real butter.  My family LOVES THESE POTATOES.  They are great for when you want to pick up a quick side to go with your main dish– so you don’t have to spend an hour peeling, boiling and mashing from scratch.  These are a great, quick option to pick up from the store (think of those busy weeknights when you don’t have time to make everything homemade!), and it’s a quality product that your whole family will enjoy.  And I love that these are already flavored with garlic!

I do use Bob Evans’ mashed potatoes on their own as a fabulous side dish, but today I’m showing you how to use them in a recipe to turn them into something else:  Two Cheese Garlic Zucchini Mashed Potatoes!

A quick heat under the broiler finished them off- all hot and bubbly and cheesy.  My family loves the zucchini/potato combination.  And they couldn’t be any easier to make.  These creamy mashed potatoes would be perfect with any summer grilling recipes you have going on.  And of course they’d be amazing with roast beef or ham too.
