This is my second time cooking a meal with mashed potatoes and gravy. It's a delicious and quick meal to prepare. I had mashed potatoes with brown gravy, spinach, and baked chicken thighs.
First, I cleaned the potatoes with something abrasive.
I prefer to peel the potatoes, so I peeled the potatoes and placed them in a bowl of cold water to remove some of the starch.
I chopped the potatoes into small pieces and placed them into another bowl of cold water to continue removing the starch.
I put the potato pieces into 2 pots filled with cold water and added a pinch of salt into each pot.
I brought the water, with the potato pieces, to boil until the potatoes were soft enough to easily cut in half.
I drained the water from the potatoes.
I mashed the potatoes until the mix was smooth.
I melted some butter and mixed it with the mashed potatoes.
I added warm milk and mixed it into the mashed potatoes.
I mixed the mashed potatoes until there are no lumps, while adding salt in the process. I didn't add any extra seasoning, since I was going to add brown gravy, but feel free to add any seasoning you want at this point.
I brought a cup of water, along with gravy mix, to boil and stirred it occasionally to keep lumps from forming. Then, let the gravy simmer and continue to stir it.
I boiled some spinach with a little bit of water, olive oil, some garlic powder, and a pinch of salt.
I baked some chicken thighs with Italian dressing and hot sauce.
I put everything together onto a plate and poured some gravy over the mashed potatoes.
Cooking mashed potatoes is a simple but delicious recipe.
