|Eww. That's all that needs to be said.|
|A huge time saver.|
I would like to provide you guys with a great, set recipe from start to finish, but I don't really have one. I throw in a ton of stuff and keep tasting and throwing in more stuff until I make those dry flakes palatable.
The absolutely essential wet ingredients I always use are: real butter, milk, half & half, cheese, sour cream, and even a shot or two of ranch dressing. Now, let's talk about dry ingredients. I don't go cheap on the seasonings because potato flakes need all the help they can get :) Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion flakes, parsley, and a mixture of different ground peppercorn are a must. There are many other things I can throw in with these potatoes to help fix them up, but these are my favorite.
What do you throw in with your mashed potatoes? Are you an instant mashed potato hater or fan? Who makes the best mashed potatoes in your family?
