Country Crock Au Gratin Potatoes, Yuck
Posted by on 08/11/2011
I decided to pick up country crock au gratin potatoes, the other day. I have never had this dish before. And, I wasn't expecting much from a frozen dinner. I decided to try it out.

I nuked them, then took a bite. Now, I don't know how this dish is supposed to taste, never had it before. but, I would think the potatoes would be fully cooked, not with this one. The potatoes were completely undercooked I mean raw even the bacon and cheesy goodness that accompanied them could not mask the taste of raw taters. I ended up throwing it away yuck.

Why didn't you just cook them a little bit longer, since you say the food was raw and uncooked?

I did I cooked it for another minute and half the taters still tasted undercooked.

I don't know Wally, I've never bought these before. Are these supposed to be previously cooked by them, and you then just heat and eat them?

Better safe then sorry since you say they tasted weird. But you should still contact them and let them know about your bad experience.

It's HORMEL!!!!!! Man-O-Man, when will you people EVER learn to listen to me?

And as Gordon Ramsey would say as he slaps his hand down on the table...'IT'S RAAAAAWWWWWWWW!!!'

I have no idea but if I cooked them any longer they would prob have burned. I even gave some to my mom she agreed they tasted way undercooked.

They are made from russet potatoes never had these type of taters before I dunno.

LOL DB! Don't start throwing country crock at us!~

Wally, I'm glad you didn't eat them. The last thing you need is a dose of food poisoning! Take it from me, been there, and suffered.

Those were probably not bacon bits in there...being Hormel, they were probably goat boogers.

Like I said maybe they might taste fine to someone else but my taste buds differ. I didn't enjoy em.

And I already fired of a email to Hormel they responded quickly and said they would send me a certificate out.

Tell them to send you a certificate out for Betty Crocker instead of Hormel.

Country crock butter rocks, so I thought why not try something else from them.

What a bunch of crocks!
Posted by madconsumer on 2011-08-11:
i wonder if you could have cooked it longer?

Mad, I did cook it longer, tasted the same. It even says on the box they are 100 percent fully cooked already. So I'm guessing these ones were bad.

Maybe it's a trick meal, like candles that don't blow out!.. haha

I'm really disappointed because I heard au gratin taters taste awesome. Guess its better to have em home made or at a restaurant.

Microwaved frozen taters - I honestly don't know if such a thing can come out well (I'm thinking of frozen dinners with taters).

So, I ask the community - do you know of a similar product that IS good?

The kind from the box is good. Au Gratin potatoes always makes a good side dish

I like to toast tater tots in a toaster oven, it makes them nice and crispy on the outside but still soft in the center. I preger the toaster oven over a microwave anytime.

Wally, these were frozen potatoes? The package clearly says "keep refrigerated". I've only seen country crock potatoes in this kind of container in the refrigeration section of the grocery store.

Wally, ever hear of potato's Obrien? They are really good. You buy them in the frozen food section. A little oil in a frying pan and 10 minutes later you have hot potato's Obrien. You can add more seasonings, peppers, onions etc all to your heart's content. Most people think of them as purely a breakfast treat. I cook them up for lunch and dinner sometimes with a couple of eggs and/or a small steak or ground hamburger.

Quick, and very good.

Good review, Wally! We do the frozen potatoes O'Brien or Hash Browns on Sundays sometimes. Like OT says, they're quick and you control the cooking and the seasonings.

Anna Molly, yes I know they are refrigerated. But, I call every dinner that needs to be microwaved a frozen dinner, tv dinner etc kinda my lingo.
