That's what I use too. I also never use milk for it. It really really doesn't need it! Sometimes they don't come out as white as they would with milk, but it's only a color thing, taste wise they taste just fine with out the milk I have found!
IT IS!! I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 casserole, and everyone who tried it RAVED about it. I also used the "Real Idaho" Idahoan potato BUDS, not the potato FLAKES. The topping came out so rich and buttery and thick, you would not know they were instant. I did not even need the powdered milk. (Got the large container at Sam's)
