Bob Evans Side Dishes Review & Giveaway

Just in time to make your holiday cooking easier, Publix is now carrying Bob Evans side dishes! I was sent the macaroni and cheese, original mashed potatoes and garlic mashed potatoes to try out. What a great timesaver these are! I served the mashed potatoes with meatloaf and it made my meal prep a snap! I love macaroni and cheese with tuna fish (not together but as a side dish) and so I prepared the mac and cheese then and loved the flavor!I loved the original mashed potatoes - they were creamy and smooth and very tasty. The macaroni and cheese was very cheesy but had a nice homemade flavor. My least favorite was the garlic mashed potatoes, there was something I couldn't put my finger on that made them my least favorite. You can find these great side dishes at many supermarkets around the country. I wanted to let Florida readers know that Publix has just started to carry these and you can find them in the refrigerator section of your grocery store.

You can make these in the microwave and they take minutes! Besides the varieties I tried, they are available in other traditional favorites such as green bean casserole, homestyle stuffing, and glazed apples. Bob Evans also has coupons on their website - currently there is a coupon for $.50 off any side dish!

The folks over at Bob Evans have graciously decided to give one (1) of my lucky readers five (5) coupons for FREE Bob Evans products!
