I see that at least one reviewer couldn't find Bob Evans brand mashed potatoes so tried to substitute dry potato flakes. The Bob Evans potatoes are already prepared, all you have to do is heat them up, so of course the recipe won't turn out if you just use potato flakes. You could either substitute 24 ounces of homemade mashed potatoes, or 24 ounces of another brand of pre-made mashed potatoes (I know Country Crock sells them in a little tub where the rest of the refrigerated foods are). Or you could try to cook up 24 ounces of potato flakes (so that the flakes plus milk, water and butter equal 24 ounces- not just 24 ounces of flakes, that would be way too much), then proceed with this recipe by adding the small amount of milk, egg and other ingredients. I hope this helps someone.
