If you make them a little thicker than what the directions say...not bad...esp. if you use them for a sheppards pie or filler , or potato cakes , put a little chesse on top...MMmmm
Could you tell us if you buy the Idahoan Real Premium Mashed Potatoes:
or the Potato Pearls Excel Potatoes:
A manager for Old Country Buffet told me about Idahoan Real 10 years ago after I asked him how I could make potatoes as good as they were serving at the time. I was buying them in supermarkets in a approx. one pound package, but they started to disappear from supermarket shelves. While I doctor them up with butter, sour cream and black pepper, they are closer to made-from-scratch than any other type I ever tried.
