8ouncesinstant mashed potatoes*(We used 2 4-ounce packages)
In a medium saucepan bring the milk and broth to a gentle boil and stir continuously while the mixture boils for two minutes.
Remove the liquids from heat and pour into a large mixing bowl.
Add potato flakes and stir well with a whisk to make sure all flakes are moistened. Let sit for five minutes.
Use a hand mixer to mix and fluff potatoes on medium speed for one minute.
Add remaining ingredients and mix on medium to medium high until all ingredients are well combined. You can have small lumps, but should not have very many.They should be slightly fluffy and smooth.
Garnish with parsley, bacon, cheese, gravy...whatever you choose!
*We prefer the Idahoan brand of instant potatoes. Go by ounces rather than cups to measure the potato flakes.The calories shown are based on the recipe serving 8, with 1 serving being 1/8 of the recipe. Since different brands of ingredients have different nutritional information, the calories shown are just an estimate. **We are not dietitians and recommend you seek a nutritionist for exact nutritional information.**
