A simple and quick recipe using instant mashed potatoes that tastes like the real thing. I will add a touch more liquid or cream cheese to these next time, as they were just a tad bit dry on the top. I got this recipe from a friend.

This is a delicious dish and great for a potluck. I doubled the amount and used 4 packages of Idahoan Parmesan and Garlic instant potatoes. I topped it with the butter and paprika as mentioned in the directions, then topped with mild cheddar. I baked it in a 9x11 pan and the entire thing was devoured by adults and kids alike. Definitely a repeat keeper!
