Mashed Potatoes Too Runny?

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?

I would try adding some instant potato flakes and see if that helps. You only want to add a few at a time.

I agree, adding more instant potato mix would be perfect.

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

I added more potatoes and it worked,

sometimes it better to rest them in the fridge for the night, it makes them harder,
then microwave a couple potatoes the next day.


they come out perfect

Very easy way out for fickle-minded people. Where has love, commitment, patience and perseverance gone?
