The new Mad About Mashtini holiday recipe collection offers the same great taste found in all of your holiday favorites, yet adds sophistication and glam to your meal that the whole family will enjoy.

Made with Bob Evans’ tasty refrigerated sides, sausage, and America’s #1 selling refrigerated mashed potatoes*, the Thankstini™, Mac ‘n Mashtini™, Roastini™, Autumn Mashtini™, and the Sweet Tater Twist Mashtini™ combine layers of classic ingredients like sweet potatoes, cranberry stuffing and seasonal vegetables into a martini glass for a dramatic side dish, an appetizer or even a simple dessert. The new mashtini recipe collection means less time in the kitchen this holiday season and more time with family and friends. All of Bob Evans delicious food products featured in these new recipes can be found in your grocer’s refrigerated section.

“Our Bob Evans family is built on tradition, so we are excited to combine staple holiday ingredients into our holiday mashtini recipes for an updated look to your supper table,” says Chef David Eisel, Bob Evans Executive Development Chef. “We have even expanded our original Mad About Mashtini collection to include more festive ingredients for the foodie in your family, such as those found in the Roastini and the Autumn Mashtini.”

If you are more of a traditionalist, but are looking for a creative way to serve up your Thanksgiving fixings in style this year, try our Thankstini. Layered with Bob Evans Original Mashed Potatoes, turkey, Bob Evans Homestyle Stuffing and Bob Evans Savory Sage Roll Sausage, our Thankstini gives a trendy twist to your Thanksgiving meal. Looking to satisfy your family’s sweet (potato) tooth? In only eight minutes, you can prepare our Sweet Tater Twist Mashtinis made with Bob Evans Original and Sweet Mashed Potatoes, mini marshmallows, honey roasted pecans, and crispy bacon crumbles drizzled with warm maple syrup. To watch Chef Eisel prepare the Thankstini and the Sweet Tater Twist Mashtini, visit Bob Evans’ YouTube channel.

The Roastini tops Bob Evans Original Mashed Potatoes – made with real butter, fresh milk and home-style lumps – with warm au jus, juicy roast beef, a hint of horseradish, and crumbled goat cheese for a tantalizing twist on your holiday roast. Roasted squash, Kalamata olives, capers and shredded Parmesan cheese top off Bob Evans Original Mashed Potatoes and Original Roll Sausage for an Autumn Mashtini that will make your family “fall” in love with Mashtinis!
