Mashed potatoes and gravy are a huge part of Thanksgiving Dinner, but mashed potatoes have the reputation of requiring a lot of work---These potatoes are a combination of the real deal (doctored up), and mixed with instant potatoes to make a huge batch. No one can tell that they are "gussied up". The secret to these mashed potatoes is to cook them with chicken broth, to make them extra yummy.

We sometimes make homemade gravy, but we found this mix that is scrumptious--and gluten free. These mashed potatoes are not just for Thanksgiving but are delicious year round.

Let's make some gluten free mashed potatoes with gluten free Turkey Gravy!!


Mashed potatoes:

  • 5 lbs. red potatoes, peeled and cut up into medium/small chunks
  • 4 cups instant mashed potato flakes, we used Hungry Jack they stipulate gf
  • 2 (12 oz) cans evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup milk, whole
  • 1 (14.5 oz) canned chicken broth, we used Swanson's they stipulate gf
  • enough water with salt to cover potatoes
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Turkey gravy:

  • 4 (.88 oz.) packets Gluten-Free Turkey Gravy mix (we used McCormick)
  • 4 cups water


  • In a large pot, place potatoes and cover with cold, salted water to cover potatoes. On medium to high, bring potatoes to boil and cook potatoes until they are tender, around 15 to 20 minutes. Drain potatoes in a colander.

  • While the potatoes are cooking, heat the chicken broth on low until warm.
  • In a large bowl, put the butter in the bottom, and pour hot potatoes on the top to melt.

  • Add milk and warmed chicken broth to the potatoes. Mash well.

  • Add instant potatoes. Mash well. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • **Use the 1/2 cup of milk to add more or less to make potatoes creamy, according to how dry or wet the potatoes turn out.



  • In a small pot, combine the water and the gravy mix. According to directions, heat the gravy mixture until it comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat.
