Mashed Potatoes Recipe full of BUTTER
I grew up in the South, but I wasn’t exposed to Southern cooking on a regular basis until I met my husband. If you’re at all familiar with Paula Deen, you already know everything is better with butter. Well… our mashed potatoes recipe is no different.
Hamburger gravy on the other hand was something I grew up eating on a regular basis. You won’t find a heartier, simpler meat and potatoes meal than Mashed Potatoes with Hamburger gravy. It’s simple and economic, and a great comfort food. I think the whole meal cost $4.00 to make, and there are sure to be leftovers.
Best Mashed Potato Recipe-
3 lbs potatoes, peeled and boiled
splash of milk
1/2 to 1 whole stick of butter
Salt and Pepper to taste (my husband likes a bunch mixed in, so that is how we do it)
With mixer set on a low speed, combine all ingredients together until smooth. This should just take a couple minutes. Easy peasy. Pair with gravy.
Hamburger Gravy Recipe-
1 pound hamburger, browned and drained
3 teaspoons beef bouillon
1/3 cup of butter or margarine
1/4 cup of flour
3-4 cups of water
Brown hamburger, drain, and return to burner. Over medium heat, add butter and bouillon. When the butter has melted, add flour and mix until blended. Slowly add water while stirring. Cook for a few more minutes, adding more water to reduce thickness as desired.
