How to Cook Instant Garlic Mashed Potatoes - cookingwithkimberly.comTypically, I use fresh potatoes for mashed potatoes. However, when you’re in a pinch without potatoes, you’re a newbie to cooking & mashed potatoes from scratch is a stretch for you, or you happen to have a box of this in your pantry, you need to know what to do with them.

Instant mashed potatoes as a side dish are great, but you can also make potato cakes, croquettes & such, as well as using them in breads for baking.

You will likely want to doctor them to your own taste or to liven things up, such as adding garlic, parsley or cheese.

The garlic option I’m speaking of is from a Drogheria Organic Garlic Grinder. I did not get this at my grocer. You can find it @ Qualifirst.com.
