Yield: 6 Servings
Estimated Cost per Serving*: 1.00

  • 3 cups prepared mashed Idaho® potatoes
  • (made from Idaho® potato flakes or from fresh potatoes)

  • 6 links (about 18 ounces) cooked turkey bratwurst

Place one bratwurst across the 4-inch side of the potato rectangle so that the ends hang over the edge of the potatoes.
