Party Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Joanne 6

This is yet another version of make ahead mashed potatoes. This one uses instant potatoes and is very good. I like to put the cream cheese in the microwave on defrost to get it nice and warm so it dissolves quickly in the water mixture.

I thought these were okay, great flavour but I just can't get over the texture of the instant potato...sorry!
