Papas Instantas!

For those times when regular mashed potatoes aren't going to cut it...

  • Instant Potato Powder
  • Instant Polenta or Gnocchi Flour
  • Milk Powder
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder or pieces
  • Parmesan. Lots of it.
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Bacon Bits or Salami pieces
  • Sundried Tomatoes
  • Olive Oil, to taste

Use your pre-made freeze dried meal the first night, then keep the foil pouch and it becomes your all-purpose dish for the remaining meals. Papas Instantas doesn't even require truly boiling water, and is a super-quick and simple dinner after a long day. Having the zip-lock-top lets you make hot food, close it up, and stash it inside your jacket for a "pouch o' heat" while you pack, unpack, and let your food cook.


  1. Thanks, shows that I still have a long ways to go in my Espanol. Pero me gusta mas la palabra 'instanta' porque es un poco mas rapidamente para decir, y escribir, como estas papas! Por supuesto solo es una palabra de gringos.
