Instant Mashed Potatoes

December is already a HUGE whirlwind for me!! I meant to do a photo tip yesterday, but I had so many other deadlines, I had to let the blog post go!  So watch for it this week…maybe later today.

I got to test out these Betty Crocker Instant Mashed Potatoes, and I wanted to share.  I LOOOOOOVE mashed potatoes, and just last week I stood with my sister in law at a sink peeling a huge bag of whole potatoes. It took a long time. That’s ok everyone once in a while, but call me lazy, that’s like a once a year thing. I remember my mom used to cook with potato flakes, and let me say that these instant potatoes that I made in the microwave were FAST, EASY, and DELICIOUS!!

I went for the microwave method, which was to put a little water, milk, butter, and the flakes inside the pouch in a glass dish with saran wrap on the top, with a vented corner. It took about 2 minutes–my kind of cooking to accompany the weeknight meal, as a perfect pairing to our main dish. I also roasted some brussels sprouts to eat with it!

I sprinkled a little seasoning on top, and voila!

There are quite a few other options that Betty Crocker offers (such as scalloped), check them out next time at the grocery store!  Here is what at the box looks like (even has a box top!)

  2. These do look good! We haven’t tried these, but we love the instant potatoes in the little bags. I wish I could remember the brand name, but the bags are a navy blue color and they have lots of different flavors. You just add boiling water to them and stir, and they are SO good. Food Lion has them on sale for around $1 each a lot, and we always stock up. Cause I’m with you, ain’t nobody got time to peel potatoes all the time! ( :
