Came out great! Can I suggest that you add just a little more potato flakes to make a quicker. You can fine tune it to your preference. ????

Very easy and quick recipe. I followed the directions exactly and also doubled the recipe. I used 1 tsp garlic powder and it was a subtle garlic flavor, not overbearing. Glad I found this recipe for instant potatoes. Keeper!
