Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes with Turkey Pan Gravy

Homemade Mashed Potatoes

There’s nothing better than homemade mashed potatoes.  What’s even better is the fact you can make them ahead and warm on Thanksgiving Day.  I have a slow cooker duo where I can heat and keep warm mashed potatoes and gravy.

Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes


  1. Potatoes- 5-6 pounds (that’s 1/2 pound of raw potatoes per person, so 5-6 pounds will feed 10-12 people)
  2. Buttermilk- 2 cups
  3. Salt- 3 tablespoons


  1. Peel potatoes and slice into large chunks
  2. Boil potatoes until tender
  3. Drain water
  4. Add buttermilk and salt; mash with a potato masher or whip with electric mixer (if too dry, add more buttermilk)


Homemade Turkey Pan Gravy

You can make the gravy base ahead of time so that homemade turkey pan gravy is a cinch on Thanksgiving Day.

Toni’s “Make-Ahead” Gravy Base is Day 9 of Toni’s 12 Days of Thanksgiving

  1. butter- 1/2 cup (1 stick)
  2. flour- (or no-clump flour like Wondra)- 7 tablespoons
  3. chicken stock- 2 cups
