Mama Mia Potatoes

Recipe by ckmclements

Taken from some cookbook I had several years ago. I don't have the cookbook anymore, but I kept this recipe. (The next bit was added 10-16-06) The recipe calls for instant mashed potatoes because it was one of those "homemade from a box" type of cookbooks where the primary ingredients of the dishes came from a can, a box, a see where that's going. In response to a spot-on review, I'm going to say if you can't find garlic or roasted garlic instant mashed potatoes, ADD THE GARLIC POWDER YOURSELF! It's too bland otherwise.

These were fairly bland, but I think maybe adding garlic (or using the garlic potatoes that I couldn't find), more salt--something--would have helped. I'm not an instant potato fan, so if you like instant potatoes, you'd probably rate this higher.
