WHAT KIND OF POTATOES SHOULD I USE?

I recommend using russet, yellow, or Yukon golds.

CAN I USE ANOTHER STYLE OF GRAVY?

I prefer these with the gravy recipe as is, but you can replace the chicken bouillon cubes for beef ones if you would like a brown gravy instead.

SHOULD I PEEL THE POTATOES?

For a smooth and creamy texture peel your potatoes. If you prefer a little more texture keep the skins on a few potatoes.

    Hi Holly! I made these today for the second time, and they are so GOOD! Today was the first time making the gravy, however I did have trouble getting it to thicken, and ended up adding 2T. Cornstarch to it.
    Delicious food!
