This is basically how I fix my instant mashed potatoes except I will not use margarine since it is hydrogenated oil. I use Idahoan Mash Potato Flakes which is the best on the market. So how can you compare those nasty tasting KFC mash potatoes with these? If you ever tried that garbage that KFC puts out you would have never try to pass off good tasting mash potatoes for KFC mash potatoes. Taste like KFC puts canned evaporated milk in theirs and I know a woman who puts this product in hers. Hers taste just as nasty. So if you want mash potatoes that taste like KFC, don't use fresh milk but canned evaporated milk and you will have the awful taste of KFC mash potatoes. Don't get me wrong, I fix a lot of dishes using canned evaporated milk but mash potatoes isn't one of them.
If you are looking for KFC potatoes , these are not it...sorry to say. My 11 yo loves KFC, and I have tried different variations to replicate KFC. I have to agree with LawyerMom. Needed to add extra milk to get these from being stiff and clumped. Only difference is the copious amount of margerine & butter. I think potatoes may have tasted better with these 2 ingredients added after the formation of the potatoes and not boiled in the water. On continues the KFC potato search!
Consistency and texture was a lot like KFC's, though I had to add a lot of extra milk. However, I think the flavor fell short. I loved how easy the recipe was, but I don't think I'll be making it again.
So much like KFC's - thank you! I usually prefer homemade, but I tend to crave these when I'm not feeling well and it will be nice to be able to fix them at home instead of sending poor DH out late at night! :) Thank you!!
These were super-easy to make, and just like KFC! I made mine in the microwave, and they were done in just a couple of minutes. Best with KFC Gravy (#58944). Thank you so much for this recipe!
This was great. Thank you for sharing.
These mashed potatoes turned out real nice. I ended up adding a little extra milk for a nice creamy consistency. We had some left over KFC fried chicken, so this went perfectly with it! Thank you Otaktay!
Made this for supper last night and they turned out great...
