Just put about 1 cup water, 1 tbsp butter and a little salt into a saucepan. Get this hot (you don’t need to boil it) and then add about 1/2 cup milk. Stir in potato flakes to the desired mashed potato consistency. Voila! 🙂

it probably depends on the brand she bought–

I’d say heat up some milk or water with some butter in a pot and bring it just to a boil, then add the instant mashed potatoes while mixing until you get the right consistency.

@mcnetn3: Yup, that’s basically it! You really don’t need directions for instant mashed taters after you’ve made them a few times. 🙂

Haha.  I would probably have had questions even if I still had the box.  I’m a crappy cook.  I prefer recipes with less than 5 ingredients.

We like to make them the day before (or at least the morning before) and heat them up when we’re ready to eat.  We find they reconsitute better that way.  I also like to add cheese or garlic.  If they’re a little runny when you make them, they’ll thicken up before you reheat them.

Depends on the brand. We just add water and put it in the microwave for 3 minutes.
