3 lbs. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2" cubes

1 tbsp Kosher salt

4 cups whole milk, divided

6 tbsp unsalted butter

1 tbsp Urban Accents Rustic Garden Seasoning

1/2 cup sour cream

World Market® Brand Turkey Gravy Base


For the mashed potatoes:

1. Place potatoes in a large pot of salted water. Bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered for 10 to 12 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Drain the potatoes in a colander and then return them to the pot. Keep warm.

2. While potatoes are cooking, heat 2 cups of milk and butter in a small saucepan until butter is melted.

3. Using a potato masher, break the potatoes up and add the hot milk/butter mixture to make the potatoes very creamy. Add the sour cream, 2 teaspoons Urban Accents Rustic Garden Herb Seasoning and stir to combine. Keep hot.

For the gravy:

1. In a saucepan, combine remaining 2 cups milk with the jar of World Market® Brand Turkey Gravy Base.

2. Whisk over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a simmer and starts to thicken. If desired, whisk in warm stock. Serve warm with mashed potatoes.
