Mashed Potatoes And Gravy (Mashed And Gravy)


Mashed Potatoes And Gravy (Mashed & Gravy)

Ingredients

900 g (2 lbs) Yukon or Russet Potatoes, peeled and quartered
4 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
5 to 6 Tbsp Cream or Milk
¼ tsp Sea Salt, or to taste

Gravy
6 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
6 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
¼ tsp Onion Powder
3 Cups Chicken Stock
2 Tbsp Beef Gravy or Drippings, or ½” of Beef Cubed
2 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Sea Salt to taste

4 to 6 small or medium ramekins or baking dish, lightly butter
1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter (topping)

Method

Put the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil, and cook potatoes for about 30 minutes, until cooked through and drain. Quickly mash the potatoes, and whisk in the warm cream or milk and butter. Whip the potatoes until fluffy. Set aside.

Meanwhile, make the gravy. In a medium saucepan over moderate heat, melt the butter. Then stir in the flour, stirring constantly to remove the raw taste of the flour and stir until it’s golden in color. Add stock, beef dripping or cubed, and pepper. Continue to whisk or stir, until the gravy is thickened to desired consistency. Season the gravy with salt, if necessary.

Preheat the broiler.

Pour the gravy equally into the ramekins or baking dish. Then pipe or spoon the potatoes on top of the gravy and top with few dots of butter. Place the ramekins or baking dish in a baking pan and broil for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until the top is golden in color and the edges are bubbling. Serve immediately or warm.

Serves 4

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
