Instructions

Mashed Potatoes

  1. Place diced Yukon Gold potatoes in a large pot with 1 tablespoon of Kosher salt and enough cold water to cover them by 1 inch. Boil and simmer until fork-tender. Drain and return to the pot.

  2. Add 4 tablespoons of diced butter to the hot potatoes. Stir until melted and combined. Incorporate sour cream, hot milk, Dijon mustard (or horseradish), remaining 1/2 tablespoon salt, and black pepper. Mash until desired consistency.

  3. Transfer hot mashed potatoes to a serving bowl and top with remaining two slabs of butter and finely chopped parsley for Freshness.

Savory Gravy Magic:

  1. If you have pan drippings from a roast, use them for added flavor. In a saucepan, heat the pan drippings.

  2. Sprinkle in 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, stirring continuously to create a smooth roux.

  3. Gradually add 2 cups of beef or chicken broth, whisking to prevent lumps.

  4. Simmer the mixture until it thickens. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
