I had my cheesy mashed potatoes for lunch today and think I did something wrong. I heated the water in the microwave and then poured it in to the cup, about 1 inch from the top as they instruct. I covered the container and left it sit for 10 minutes but when I came back I had potato soup. It tasted good, but I was hoping for actual potato texture. Any idea what I did wrong? Thanks!..

Your question was: What did I do wrong with the Nutrisystem Cheesy Potato?.

I just made these today for the first time, really yummy..

I filled the container with boiling water, stirred and let it sit 3 minutes, then stirred it up again and it was the perfect consistency. I'm not sure why yours came out soupy, maybe it just needed stirred a little more after adding the water?..

I don't ever let mine sit. I add boiling or very hot water to about the fill-line (I don't really pay much attention to the line), stir it up well, and eat immediately. Sometimes mine's so thick I have to add a little more water. They are never soupy or "potato mortar" (LOL)..

Has anything ever escaped? I figured shaking the container killed anything left alive in there.

PS: Neat signature..

As with a lot of the food you add water to one of the main things to remember is to make sure the water is extremely hot & especially in the case of the potatoes it should be boiling. When I first started Nutrisystem I thought I was heating the water in the microwave long enough to boil, but I actually wasn't. So just keep that in mind. Also, like others have said make sure you stir it up really well b/c it can stick to the bottom. I love the cheesy mashed potatoes!!!..

Maybe just too much water unless you didn't stir up all the powder from the bottom. I usually give the container a good shake before opening. Then I add water from the kettle and stir very well. Don't really pay any attention to the mark on the container (if they still add one). When the water goes in it sits on top of the powder and is much closer to the rim than the specified inch. After a good stir the level drops and typically I find the resulting mix is stiff rather than soupy...

I usually put tap water in, (less that to the line) stir well on the bottom and microwave for one minute. Stir and if too thick add a little more water. I like mine thick. Enjoy!..

Comment #6

Okay, thanks. I'll try doing it that way next time! :-)..

Comment #7

Oh, that sounds good too! I wanted to microwave them but it didn't have micro directions so I didn't dare. I'll have to try it both ways when I get my new order and see which works better. Thanks!..

Never had a problem with the potatoes (okay, just once when I got distracted and let it sit for about 30 minutes and then had potato mortar). Shake container, add boiling water, stir, stir, stir, stir making sure to get the powder from the bottom (it likes to stick in the crevices), put lid back on and cover with something heavy for 10 minutes...

Comment #9

I do not think it tells you to let it sit for 10 minutes - you fix this the same as you do instant potatoes. (i will have to read container again)..

Comment #10

Oh and anything I microwave from Nutrisystem has a paper towel covering it so it doesn't explode or spit in the microwave...
