Instant mashed potatoes... any help?

Anybody know of anything I can do with instant mashed potatoes to spice them up? We have an over abundance of them and I am trying to find different things to add to them to make them different. Any help?

We've added sour cream, bacon and cheese, and sometimes green onion to make like a "loaded baked potato" flavor, It's a simple way to change the taste. Other than that, I'm not much help!

Jodi, that's what we always do with them. Wink

I also know you can use them in place of real mashed taters in just about any recipe like a Shepherd's Pie (for example).

We also use instant mashed taters to make potato salad in a pinch - since the taters in my potato salad usually end up half-mashed anyways this works well.

What me and my husband do is we add Chives and sour cream to them...other times we just add lots and lots of butter, pepper and salt.
Other than that, thats all I can think of!

I also use them to thicken up potato soup.

My favorite way to spice them up...
Cheddar Cheese and a little garlic!
