Quick and Easy Preparation Instructions

Stovetop Prep

  1. HEAT water, margarine and salt to rolling boil in saucepan.
  2. REMOVE from heat.
  3. STIR in milk and Classic Flakes with fork until potatoes are desired consistency. DO NOT WHIP. Refrigerate leftovers.

HIGH ALTITUDE (3500-6500 ft)

STOVE-TOP PREP: Because liquids may evaporate faster, increase water amount and cooking times if needed.

Microwave Prep

  1. COMBINE water, margarine, salt and milk in microwave-safe bowl according to chart below.
  2. STIR in Classic Flakes just until moistened; cover but allow steam to vent on one side.
  4. REMOVE carefully from microwave—bowl and potatoes will be hot; stir gently, do not whip. Refrigerate leftovers.


Increase microwave time by 30 seconds (potatoes will be hot but not bubbly).
