Amazing Instant Mashed Potatoes

Mashed Potatoes With Butter And Parsley Photo
This summer I attended a dinner and had the most delicious mashed potatoes. I asked how they were made and to my surprise it was instant! However, they also added garlic powder, parsley and chicken broth! Ah-ha!  I discovered a similar recipe on Pinterest, so that's were I started. I bumped the recipe up by one quarter. You've just got to try these next time!

Serves 4-6

2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 1/2 cups potato flakes
4 TBSP butter
Pinch of dried parsley
Pinch of garlic powder
Pinch of onion powder
Pinch of pepper
Pinch of love

Heat the chicken broth, whipping cream and butter in a sauce pan. Do NOT bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
Add potato flakes, stirring constantly until smooth. Add all seasonings. Stir until well blended. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. You can add to the amount of seasonings but you really should use all 4. This has no chicken, garlic or onion taste. Just an amazing flavor. Enjoy!
