About potato flakesEdit
Dehydrated instant flaked potatoes are uncooked potatoes with most of the water removed.
Store potatoes at room temperature. After opening, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Uses & Tips Edit
For added convenience, cook potatoes the day before and refrigerate in a closed container overnight. Use within 3 days.
For a Tex-Mex flair, top mashed potatoes with a spoonful of zesty salsa.
In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups water and 3 tablespoons margarine or butter to a rolling boil. Remove from heat. Stir in ¾ cup milk and 2 cups potato flakes with fork until potatoes are of desired consistency. (Makes six ½-cup servings.)
