Gloria's Homestyle-Like Mashed Potatoes


(1 vote) 5 1

These do not taste like instant potatoes. My husband is very picky eater, and he loves these. Ready in 5 minutes. I have been making these for about 15 years, a lot of people ask me why is it so good.

  • 2 C. Idaho instant potatoes
  • 2 1/3 C. water at room temperature
  • 2/3 C. evaporated milk
  • 1/4 C. butter or margarine
  • Salt and pepper


In a 2 quart microwave container, first put in the 2 C. of instant real Idaho potatoes. Add water and stir, it will thicken, then add butter or margarine. Put in microwave on high for 5 minutes. Take out and let set for 5 minutes. Then salt and pepper to your liking. I usually sprinkle paprika on top to make it look pretty.
