Wonderful! Here's how I adjusted it. I prefer not to use powdered milk as it is a source of glutamate (MSG), which my husband and one son are sensitive to. So, I left that out, and replaced the instant mashed potatoes with the same measurement of freshly ground whole wheat flour. I store the mix in the freezer to ensure the flour doesn't go rancid. When preparing, use half water and half milk for the liquid, or even all milk for a richer taste. I also add a couple of Tbsps of butter to the liquid and prepare it on the stovetop rather than in the microwave.

I love this recipe!! I use it all the time. I originally found it in that same magazine. I'm so glad you posted it now I can save it to my zaar cookbook and not have to search my magazines for it.

I made this yesterday and then tried it out for supper. LOVED IT!! I usually can't cook unless I have a "cream of" something close by. Thanks for a great recipe. The taste was amazing!
