Dehydrated instant flaked potatoes are uncooked potatoes with most of the water removed.


Store potatoes at room temperature. After opening, store in airtight container in the refrigerator.

Uses & Tips

For a special touch, stir in any of these ingredients after cooking: grated Parmesan cheese; shredded Cheddar cheese; or corn.

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 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.)
