For a long time I only used instant mashed potatoes when camping. 🏕
Turns out they’re a wonderful comfort food that can be prepared so quickly and easily that I can manage them even on my hardest days.
Bob’s Red Mill has a garlic-free version, and due to a sensitivity at my house I haven’t branched out. So I don’t know if they’re the best instant mashed potatoes, but they are perfect for my purposes.
(The price fluctuates, but I can usually get them for about $5/lb (25 servings) on Amazon—they’re cheaper if you can find them in a brick and mortar store) https://www.bobsredmill.com/store-finder.html?wbprod=8048
