What to Serve with Texas Roadhouse Mashed Potatoes:

Chicken – Chicken is the OG to serve with Texas Roadhouse mashed potatoes! My go to is an Easy Oven Roasted Barbecue Chicken, it is so cozy and simple to make. We also love our Blackened Chicken Tenders! Both are solid option, it just depends how much time your have to cook your chicken. If you forgot to thaw your chicken we have some tips for how to cook air fryer frozen chicken tenders here.

Pot Roast – I love a good Sunday pot roast, I love making them in the crockpot in the morning and coming home from church and the whole house smell amazing, makes the whole family hungry!

Steak – If red meat is your thing steak and potatoes are another classic that I grew up on and is a huge comfort food for me. I keep my very simple, I sear them in butter with salt and pepper and finish them off in the oven.

Side Dishes – Carrots, but not just any carrots my family loves our recipe for Italian Parmesan Roasted Carrots. This are so simple to make but have some unique flavors to mix up your dinner! Can we even talk about Texas Roadhouse mashed potatoes without recommending some warm dinner rolls! It’s a must for a cozy dinner.

How to Reheat Texas Roadhouse Mashed Potatoes:

One of the best ways to reheat mashed potatoes is actually in the oven, these potatoes have quite a bit of dairy in them, so being able to control the temp is key to having them taste like you just made them!

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
  2. Add your leftover potatoes to an oven safe dish and cover with a lid or foil.
  3. Place in the over for 20-35 minutes depending on how much potatoes you have to reheat.

If you are short on time, there is no shame in using the microwave. I just add a splash of milk and give it a good stir and microwave for a minute and stir and continue until the potatoes are warm. We recommend doing it this way to avoid drying out the potatoes, they need a bit of moisture for the microwave.

How to Store Texas Roadhouse Mashed Potatoes:

Storing these mashed potatoes is super easy, you just need an air tight container and they will keep in the fridge for about 3-5 days.

You can even freeze mashed potatoes! My mind was blown with I figured this out! Store them in an air tight freezer safe container and they are good for a month in the freezer. I use freezer ziplock bags, make the mashed potatoes flat and then I just add them to a casserole dish and reheat in the oven. I sometimes triple this batch so I can do them and have some for one of those busy weeknights.

FAQ:

Does Texas Roadhouse mashed potatoes have bacon?

If you get the loaded mashed potatoes it does have bacon, but regular does not.

Why do you throw peanuts on the floor at Texas Roadhouse?

Complimentary in-shell peanuts on every table are a signature part of their brand identity. But they also serve as a source of pride for the company, and a reflection of their humble values. “We’re known for what we call, ‘legendary food, legendary service,’ but you will always hear people say ‘oh, the peanut place!

Why are the Texas Roadhouse rolls so good?

The flour mix is a little sweeter than a typical dinner roll. Once baked, melted butter is brushed over the tops of the buns. The resulting soft dinner roll is sweet, a little doughy, and buttery, something fans of the restaurant have loved.
