To use the homemade brown gravy mix:
Mix 4 tbsp of the mix with 1 cup of cold water. Whisk until smooth. Heat in a small saucepan over medium hit stirring constantly until it thickens.
Optional preparation with butter:
Heat 1 tbsp of butter in a pan. Add 4 tbsp of the gravy mix. Stir it around in the melted butter for a minute. Add 1 cup of water and whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil and cook for a minute or two. The gravy will start to thicken.
Gonna make some meatloaf burgers to go with it and a can of peas, yummo.
Will add mushrooms and onions to the gravy
Mashed tater recipe which I always keep in the freezer. Cheesy Onion Mashed Taters
These are great for when you are in a hurry plus I was throwing out way too many potatoes. You all know by now I like winging it, LOLOL These are great for potato pancakes too.
Cheesy Onion Mash Potatoes
5 lb russet taters
5 slices Velveeta cheese (Add more or less to taste)
1 small onion chopped up (Wing it)
Butter and milk
Wash taters and cut them in half and boil until done. I don't peel them because I have a ricer.
When taters done just mash everything together. I use a hand masher until they are the consistency that the electric hand mixer can handle, then mix with electric mixer until smooth.
Ok, mashed taters done, damn I love that ricer, will let them cool before I bag and freeze. I use the flimsy cheap fold over sandwich baggies then I put them in a freezer bag. I put the baggie in a short cup so I can spoon in the taters.
Just in case anybody is interested the ricer is a Browne potato ricer, it come with the 3 discs with different size holes. There are cheaper ones out there but I like this one because it is stainless steel.

I may add some garlic powder next time I make them.
To make fancy ones, put mashed taters in a casserole dish put strips of cheese on top and sprinkle with bacon bits, bake until cheese melts.
Oh, by the way, let them thaw about 20 minutes or so then get them out of the baggie otherwise they will all stick inside. Nuke them then stir and nuke some more and you'll have fresh homemade mashed taters.
