The potato flakes get even more rich and cream with some extra ingredients added in. Now don’t just use any type of instant potatoes for this, it needs to be the flake kind to get the right results.
You can top these with gravy or try some herbed butter. I combined a stick of butter with a tsp parsley and a tsp oregano to go on top of these creamy potatoes.
- 3 3/4 cups boiling water
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 (8 oz) light cream cheese, cut into cubes
- 1/2 cup butter, cubed
- 1/2 cup light sour cream
- 4 cups mashed potato flakes
- 1 tsp garlic salt
