"This is so easy. My husband hates instant potatoes so I have to hide them when making this. Once this is ready to be cooked he never knows! He loves pork chops this way. I even use this recipe for company. Always raves."

"391 mg of salt per chop is too much for a salt free diet/low salt diet. Fat is high. Not healthy, but taste is great! Cannot make again."

"Jill, that's the type of instant mashed potatoes. They are Butter and Herb flavored instant mashed potatoes. Hope that helps."

"I guess I don't understand the recipe. What does 2/3 cup butter and herb-flavored mashed potatoes mean? Does one prepare herb-flavored mashed potatoes and add 2/3 cup butter ? Does this recipe really mean to use 1 full cup of butter?"
