Campus dining operators continuously seek to provide a wide variety of options to fuel their students and satisfy their needs. While this can be a challenge, substituting select ingredients can be helpful for chefs and operators to reduce labor and increase efficiency. Fresh-Dried™ Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes are a perfect solution – with options ranging from simply seasoned to deliciously flavored, smooth and creamy to lumps and peels. Idahoan® products maintain the quality and taste of scratch-made mashed potatoes with added convenience. There are many dishes that can be made with Fresh-Dried™ potatoes – they’re the perfect blank canvas to build upon as they can be paired with just about anything. Build your dish with fish, meat, poultry, tofu, vegetables or any ingredients you have on hand for delicious meals across all day-parts and cuisines.
Another pantry hero is Idahoan’s Fresh-Dried™ Hash Browns, a delicious labor saver – simply rehydrate and grill them to golden perfection. Idahoan Hash Browns are just one example of an otherwise traditionally labor intensive breakfast side, made much easier.
Another way to use Fresh-Dried™ potatoes is by using Idahoan® SLICES Scalloped Potatoes to whip up perfect casseroles in an instant! These creamy and cheesy potatoes are the ideal elevated side to any meat or vegetable main course.
Idahoan’s Fresh-Dried™ potatoes can be used in global cuisines, which is ideal for campus dining. A Technomic report dictates that 43% of students say that they would like their school to offer more ethnic foods and beverages1. Whether it’s in American, European, or Asian cuisines, these speed-scratch potatoes can be immensely helpful in limiting labor and time while maintaining the taste and quality of a scratch-made recipe.
Looking for a convenient on-the-go item? Idahoan® Single-Serve Mashed Potato Cups are the ideal grab-and-go item for students and faculty alike. Simply fill the cup with water, stir, and microwave for 1½ minutes for the perfect snack. Offer them across campus at coffee shops and markets to provide a delicious and comforting meal for students on the go. These can also be easily stored in student housing for a late night study snack.
Idahoan offers many different Fresh-Dried™ potato options that give operator’s a win-win: limiting labor, maintaining quality and taste, and providing convenience for students with grab-and-go options.
