Back for a Thanksgiving cameo, the Kirkland Signature deli pre-made real mashed potatoes at Costco are now in stores. These are extra large sized to feed a crowd – or see below for some serving ideas to use all of these up! A fall favorite, and holiday meal essential…these are REAL mashed potatoes without all the peeling, and boiling and mashing and seasoning…you just heat and serve!

I remove them from the packaging and microwave them. You can also move them into a baking dish and bake them to warm them up. They are fully cooked though, so do what is easy for you on the big day!

Why I like the Costco Mashed Potatoes

I’ve said it before and I”ll say it again…when hosting a large meal we all have to outsource some. In my opinion, peeling, boiling and mashing potatoes is pretty basic stuff. I can always add a little dash of this or that to these, but by shortcutting the whole process I save a lot of time and mess in my kitchen on a busy day.

I honestly can’t say that if I made mine homemade they’d taste any different. These are good, and I definitely recommend these as an item to outsource and just buy pre-made!

Costco Price & Item Number

Yukon Gold mashed potatoes are Costco item number 14265 and cost  $1.99 per pound. It’ll cost around $10 per package, give or take a buck or two.

Where to Find Mashed Potatoes at Costco
