Instant Potatoes Make Really Great Gnocchi (And Other Truths)

So here are my feelings about instant mashed potato flakes: When made simply into mashed potatoes, they’re not great. This may sound dramatic, but it’s true: Instant potato flakes have the potential to save holidays. Reason 1: Instant potatoes may not make the best mashed potatoes, but anything that you can do with leftover mashed potatoes, you can also do with instant—and much faster. Reason 5: All right, I know I’ve bashed instant mashed potatoes enough, so I will concede on one point. If you ever—say, in the heat of Thanksgiving prep—add too much milk or butter to your carefully cooked and mashed potatoes (or maybe found that your potatoes weren’t drained properly), instant potatoes can be your savior.
