So, if you’re thinking, “I sure could go for some potatoes…” well, then, Casey’s Corner in Magic Kingdom has a little something (or two!) for you!
The Featured Hot Diggity Dog of the Month for October is the Loaded Mashed Potato Hot Dog! And when we heard about it, we knew we had to try it.
As with all the other hot dogs at Casey’s, you can order it in regular size or in a Foot-Long, which is what you see here.
Topping the all-beef hot dog are garlic mashed potatoes, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, bacon, scallions and sour cream, and green onions.
First of all, they don’t skimp on the toppings on these over-the-top dogs, and this month’s Featured Dog is no exception.
But wait… there’s more. For a while now, Casey’s has also been serving Monthly Special Loaded Fries. That means you can get the toppings of the Featured Hot Dog on top of French Fries instead. You can purchase them on their own, or upgrade your Hot Dog meal with them for an additional $2.20.
So that means that this month, you’ve got yourself a heaping helping of Loaded Mashed Potato French Fries!
Now, in both cases, the mashed potatoes themselves are quite tasty, with a really nice amount of garlic. And the flavors go well with the hot dog — it’s salty, for sure, but with just a hint of sweetness from the caramelized onions. I thought the texture would be super weird, and I also thought it looked off-putting at first.
But the mashed potatoes were so soft, it ended up working like a dip, of sorts. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it was pretty good!
Unfortunately, though, the garlic still didn’t lend enough flavor variety to the French Fries, which ended up being a case of potato overload. (And I love potatoes.)
