Cheezy Bacon Mashed Potatoes
In a quart freezer bag:
1 1/2 cups instant mashed potatoes
1/4 tsp salt, if desired
1/3 cup instant milk
3 Tbsp cheese sauce powder
Shelf stable bacon, to taste (2-3 Tbsp or more), leave in package.
Add the bacon to the dry ingredients.
Add 2 1/4 cups near boiling water. Stir well, let cool a bit and eat.
Serves 1 - 2, depending on how hungry. 1 for logger sized appetite, 2 smaller or if other food is present.
Notes: Shelf stable bacon is found in the meat department as well as near the salad dressings. Hormel is one brand and there are others. You can find it at Target as well. Most bags are around 3 ounces. If you divide a bag between 2 meals that works well. Once you open the bags, use them up within a day if outside.
As for cheese sauce powder? You can get it in bulk bins and online. You can also use cheddar cheese. If you look in the cheese aisle they sell cheddar cheese in packs like string cheese. Use 1-2 per bag. Dice it up and fold in with water.
