Garlic & Margarine Mashed Potato Mix

  • 2 cups dry instant potato flakes
  • 1/3 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • good pinch of black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Measure all of the ingredients into a resealable plastic container. I prefer to use plastic quart sized zipper bags. Seal and label the container, and store on the pantry shelf until needed. It’s a good idea to make up several of these at a time for convenience sake.

To Prepare:

  • 1 package of Garlic & Margarine Mashed Potato Mix
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 3 cups boiling water (use 3-1/4 cups if you prefer your potatoes thinner)

Empty the mashed potato mix into a large bowl. Add the margarine. Pour in the boiling water. Let it sit a moment to melt the margarine. Stir the mixture with a fork until it is smooth and thick. Serve hot, straight from the bowl.
I prefer mine made with 3-1/4 cups of boiling water, but this is a personal decision. Makes 4 large servings.
