What's your idea of the ultimate comfort food? Grilled cheese sandwich. Chicken and dumplings. Chicken soup. Creamy potato soup. Maybe a loaded hot dog or hamburger. Hey, a big plate of crispy salty french fries? Ice cream. Pizza. Chocolate. Yeah, for sure, the list can go on and on. Definitely on most of these comfort food lists are mashed potatoes! And, this new version of mashed potatoes will blow your socks off!

What we have here are not only creamy buttery velvety mash potatoes, but crispy bacon bits, and something you'd never expect. Pineapple tidbits! Adding these grilled pineapple tidbits takes mashers to a new level. You've got all the cylinders poppin' with textures and flavors. The subtle hints of sweet from the natural pineapples, only the best from Dole Packaged Foods, will certainly surprise and titillate palates around the table.

Dole Sunshine is certainly know to be the 'king' of pineapple. And, besides just drinking the juice and eating the delicious pineapple, there are so many other things can you do with the different cuts of pineapple. Sweet and savory, pineapple is an ultimate versatile ingredient. I love to take pineapple chunks or tidbits, pan sear in a hot cast iron skillet in some butter and just add a spicy seasoning mixture, like Cajun seasoning or Trader Joe's Chili Lime seasoning.

There are some pretty impressive health benefits of pineapple like being loaded with healthy anti-oxidants, having bountiful nutrients, and a group of enzymes, known as bromelain, that ease indigestion. Dig into the research more on your own, so you know. There's plenty of information out there in cyberspace! Just knowing that by adding pineapple you can boost your nutrients in a wonderful comfort food like mashed potatoes makes me smile! xoxo ~ally
