Bob Evans Sweet Tater Twist Mashtini Recipe

Last month to kick off National Potato Day (August 19) Bob Evans created their Mad About Mashed campaign. They created six different mashed potato recipes and a site on how to hold your own Mashtini party. I decided to try the Sweet Tater Twist Mashtini at home. I thought I had all the ingredients I needed to make the recipe but I didn’t so I made some substitutions on mine. I didn’t have bacon, so I used bacon bits (I’d definitely stick with bacon.) I noticed that the picture that they use for their Sweet Tater Twist Mashtini had walnuts in it, but their recipe called for honey roasted pecans. The funny thing was that I didn’t have walnuts so I substituted with honey roasted pecans. Turned out I used the right ingredient after all. (Feedback given to me was that the walnuts would have been better because they would be softer and easier to chew.) I also think it would taste great if you could throw it under the broiler to toast up those marshmallows just a bit.
