Making Weeknight Dinners Easy with Betty Crocker Sides


Dinner time has become a big problem in our house. With the sun setting so early, and the kids going to bed early for school the next day; we often find ourselves scrambling to make something for dinner.

I can’t even begin to tell you how often we have been eating out, it’s embarrassing. So we have been working hard to plan our dinners, easy dinners, and know what each night is going to entail.

My requirement for easy weeknight dinners are delicious sides that aren’t difficult to make, don’t take a lot of time and they have to be something that my husband can help out with.

Some of our favorite sides include:

  • Steamed Vegetables
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Rice
  • Pastas
  • Fruit
  • Salad

Making Weeknight Dinners Easier with Betty Crocker Sides 

During tonight’s dinner, we choose a side of salad and incorporated it in with Betty Crocker Ultimate Au Gratin potatoes. While I would love to make a fresh side of home made potatoes, it’s so helpful on busy work nights to throw some Betty Crocker Au Gratin potatoes in the oven and be done.

The specialty line of potato’s from Betty Crocker can make any meal complete, with six varieties to choose from there is always a perfect pairing.

  • Ultimates Loaded Mashed
  • Ultimates Au Gratin
  • Mashed Homestyle Creamy Butter
  • Mashed Roasted Garlic
  • Scalloped Potatoes
  • Au Gratin Potatoes

I haven’t tried the Ultimate Loaded Mashed potato or the Scalloped potatoes, but they are next on my list. Which variety would your family most enjoy?
