How to make this recipe with dehydrated potatoes: Replace step 1 in the recipe for the following and replace the ingredients with 4 cups of mashed potatoes made with dehydrated mashed potatoes. To make 6 cups of prepared mashed potatoes from dehydrated potatoes you will need the following: 3-1/3 cup water, 1-1/2 teaspoon salt, 1-1/2 cup cold milk, 3-1/3 cup potato flakes. Combine the water, and salt together in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the cold milk gently stir in the potato flakes. Allow the potatoes to stand for a few moments before fluffing with a fork. Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat; once melted, add 1 clove of garlic minced and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Once the garlic is soft about 45 seconds to a minute, stir the garlic and the butter into the potatoes. Proceed with the recipe starting with step 2 – but ignoring this sentence “Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or ricer until they reach the desired consistency”.
- Because the prepared mashed potatoes already have butter, milk, and garlic these steps do not need to be added. The recipe does need to be adjusted slightly for the cheese, rosemary and nonfat Greek yogurt. Only use 2/3 cup of cheddar cheese, 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt, and 2 teaspoons of chopped fresh rosemary.
