How to Make Instant ?? Mashed Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. To serve four, in a saucepan, measure according to box measurements the butter, water and salt.
  2. Use the half and half to replace the milk, using about 1/4 cup less that it calls for. Pour into saucepan with butter, etc.
  3. Add 1/3 package of the cream cheese and heat mixture to almost boiling. Mix some to blend all together.
  4. Whip in the instant potatoe flakes well. You may need to thicken them up a bit with a few more potatoe flakes if they seem a little thin.
  5. I have used what real potatoes I had on hand but if it wasn't enough for the meal I made these to extend my potatoes.
