Better Mashed Potatoes


This will liven up the flavor of instant mashed potatoes, which tend to be a bit bland when you make them without salt. Be careful to check the label of the potatoes, some have significant amounts of sodium, particularly the "complete" mixes where you only add water.

1 1/2 c Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1/2 c Skim Milk
2 T Unsalted Margarine
1/2 t Onion Powder
1/4 t Garlic Powder
1 1/2 c Instant Mashed Potatoes

Combine all ingredients except potatoes in a saucepan. Bring to boiling. Remove from heat and stir in potatoes. Let stand five minutes. FLuff before serving.
