I didn't think it could get any easier than using prepared instant potatoes for Party Potatoes but with this one I just added the potato flakes dry to the rest of the ingredients and it worked great! I did add a topping from my old recipe made up of 1T melted butter, 1/4C bread crumbs, crumbled bacon and 1/2C shredded cheese then lightly covered with foil and baked for about 30 minutes on 350 then uncovered and baked for another 20 minutes or so. Very easy and tasty dish!!

I loved the simplicity of this recipe, but the potatoes came out extremely thick. I did follow the recipe exactly and measured everything out, I didn't "eyeball" anything. I had to add more milk and butter to reach a creamy consistency. I will make this again for sure but will adjust the amount of milk and water when I do. Thanks for the recipe.

We really liked this recipe. It's really nice when you don't have real potatoes on hand, and my grown sons liked them and asked me if I was going to make them again when they were here next. No one knew they were from instant. I made for 12 servings, and used 1 c. Smart Balance instead of butter, and 1 T. garlic salt instead of salt, and added 1 T. garlic from a jar. Very creamy too!

I was on potato-duty for two Thanksgiving dinners, so this quick recipe was perfect for me. For the first dinner I made the recipe exactly as stated, except I used 1 tbsp green onions instead of onion flakes. It was good, but not great and the consistency wasn't like real potatoes. For the second dinner, I used 1 tbsp of garlic salt and omitted the garlic powder and salt. I also added pepper. I used green onions again and added an extra cup of potato flakes. It was delicious! Lots of great flavour and the consistency was perfect!

A nice way to make instant potatoes taste more creamy. We didn't think these had much flavor, but, the texture was good. I think I'd add some cheese, onions, or minced garlic rather than powder. I served these with Swiss Steak Del Rio #23314.
