If your mashed potatoes are too soupy, put them over medium/low heat with the top off and let them cook for about 10 minutes. Stir potatoes often so the bottom doesn't burn.

Husband whipped up 5 lbs. of taters while I added 1 stick or 1/2 cup of butter resulting in yummy runny mashed potatoes.

Our question is how to stiffen them back up?

If you don't have instant potatoes on hand, tapioca makes a good thickener.
