From Betty Crocker. Should work with any 4.7/4.9 oz boxed Au Gratin Potato Mix. Kroger is STUPID and only put the Oven directions on their box.
- Microwave: Quick and easy. 1. Stir potatoes with sauce mix, 2-1/2 cups hot water, 1/2 cup milk and 2 tablespoon margarine or butter in 2-quart round microwavable casserole or bowl. 2. Microwave uncovered on High 10 to 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, just until tender (sauce will thicken as it stands). Dish will be hot.
- Oven directions: 1. Heat oven to 450°F. Stir potatoes, sauce mix, boiling water, milk and margarine in 1-1/2 quart casserole. 2. Bake uncovered about 20 minutes or until tender (sauce will thicken as it stands).
- Baking tips: For easy cleanup, spray casserole with cooking spray. Use boiling water for best potato texture and sauce appearance. For 1 package, double all ingredients and bake in 3-quart casserole about 25 minutes. You can bake 1 or 1 package potatoes and roast meat in the same oven: 325°F about 55 minutes; 350°F about 45 minutes; 375°F about 40 minutes.
- Stovetop directions: Ready in minutes. 1. Heat potatoes, sauce mix, 2 cups hot water, 1/2 cup milk and 2 tablespoons margarine or butter to boiling water in 2-quart saucepan. 2. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender (sauce will also thicken slightly as it stands).
