Mashed Potatoes and Gravy|This Is Why I’m Full
Below we have two recipes, one for the most amazing mashed potatoes you will ever have, and a fantastic gravy recipe! You will love these Mashed Potatoes and Gravy!
I was vegetarian for 3 years when I was a teenager. Well, when I say vegetarian what I mean is that I ate pretty much nothing except potatoes for three years. Potatoes are probably my favorite food! When you think about your favorite food you think of one specific dish or type of dish. Potatoes can be so many things! And what’s better than some homemade delicious and chunky mashed potatoes? As far as I’m concerned nothing! (The Hubby disagrees, he says bacon)
Anyway, if you like mashed potatoes you are going to love this recipe! Not to mention the super simple gravy recipe that goes along with it!
This gravy is great because you can make it with any type of drippings; meatloaf, pot roast, pan cooked hamburgers, etc.
