Mashed Potatoes and Gravy


A little calorie overload from one of the family's favorite comfort foods. =D







Mashed Potato
Ingredients:
6 potatoes
water
half cup milk
4 tablespoons butter
salt/pepper

How to:

Peel, wash and cut the potatoes. Put them in a small pot with just enough water to cover them. Boil until tender, around 20 minutes or so. Drain the water off the pot.

Lower the heat and put back the pot, add milk and butter while mashing the potato. Use a potato masher or fork (don't put them in a blender). Mash until free of lumps, afterwards put them in a bowl and whip with a fork, season with salt and pepper. Serve.




Gravy

4 tbsps butter
3 tbsps flour
half of beef cubewater
pepper



In a small pan, melt butter on low heat. Add crushed beef cube and stir. Slowly put in the flour stirring constantly. Turn off stove then add pepper and a little water. Adjust the texture by adding water. You can also add a little of the mashed potato to make it thicker.

Best served with burger patties.

Hi doc! 1st time ko post ng may kasamang portions ang ingredients lol.

Adjust mo na lang kasi it really depends on your preferences, gusto ng mga bata yung mejo malagkit kaya ganun niluluto ko...

Uy, I did that before. I used the hand held mixer instead of using the potato masher. Ayun, naging super thick potato soup siya XD
