I learned the hard way that INSTANT MASHED POTATOES DO NOT WORK for this recipe--what I ended up with was a bowl of extremely tasty potato goo. Once I figured out (thanks to my helpful mom) that I had to use ACTUAL potatoes, this recipe was indeed quite simple and very yummy. I think next time I will add some garlic powder to the potatoes after mashing them to give the patties a little extra kick.
