  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour or gluten free flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions for the Mash Potatoes 

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the potatoes, 1 teaspoon salt, and cold water to cover.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Lower the heat to maintain a simmer and cook until fork tender, about 10 minutes.
  4. Drain the potatoes, reserving a 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.
  5. Return potatoes to the pan.
  6. Shake the pan over medium heat for about a minute to dry the potatoes.
  7. Transfer the potatoes to a food mill, ricer, or bowl. (Use a plastic masher to reduce nickel intake) 
  8. Add the oil and reserved cooking liquid to the saucepan, and warm over medium heat.
  9. Remove pan from the heat.
  10. Mash the potatoes through the food mill, ricer, or by hand into the pan.
  11. Add the herbs and stir to combine.
  12. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
Directions for the Gravy 

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Whisk in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth.  (Use a nylon or rubber coated whisk to reduce nickel intake) 
  3. Cook and stir over medium heat until browned, about 10 minutes.
  4. Gradually stir in milk so that no lumps form, and continue cooking and stirring until thickened.
  5. If the gravy becomes too thick, you may thin it with a little more milk.
