There was a CP recipe posted the other day and it called for potato flakes. Could someone please tell me what they are?

Hi Lisa,

I am assuming by potato flakes, they are meaning the Instant Mashed Potatoes you buy in a box? That's my guess anyway...hopefully someone else can tell you wether I am on the right or wrong track in my answer ;) lol

Always nice to see new faces, I hope you stay around and join us in the conversation corner as well!

Hi Lisa and welcome to Q&E!!!!

Yep, Chrissy is right, potato flakes are instant mashed potatos in the box.
