I am impatient to handle tedious and time consuming recipes. My girls loves to eat mashed potatoes, the easiest, simplest and fastest way to prepare mashed potatoes that I discovered is to use the packet soup as base.
I have tried Vono brand Mushroom Cheese soup
and also Campbell's mushroom soup, both are well received by my girls
in a small pot, mix water (I never measure how much water, just agak-agak (own estimation), some milk powder dissolve in water, add in some butter. The milk and butter are optional.
bring the water mixture to boil, with small fire, add in the mashed potatoes flakes bit by bit, I have tried Western Family and Hungry Jack Brands, both are good.
stir with eggs stirrer or spatula till the mashed potatoes flakes are well mixed in to the desired consistency, if it is too runny just add more potatoes flakes bit by bit, add a bit of water if otherwise.
It is easy to prepare, usually I will let my girls to handle the cooking under my supervision
they like it plain
relaxing with a bowl of mashed potatoes. Ideal for weekend snacks.
