For the potatoes

  • 3 lbs russet potatoes, about 5-6 medium potatoes
  • 1 cup Land O Lakes® Half and Half
  • 2 Half-Sticks (8 tbsp) Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tsp McCormick® Pure Ground Black Pepper
  • Fresh chopped chives for garnish, optional

For the gravy

  • 1 package McCormick® Turkey Gravy Seasoning Mix
  • 1 cup water


  • Cut potatoes into small, bite-sized pieces for quick cooking. Add potatoes to a large stockpot, then add water to cover potatoes. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat then simmer potatoes for 8-10 minutes until fork tender.
  • When potatoes are done, drain and return to pot. With a potato masher, mash potatoes for 2-3 minutes to release heat and steam.
  • Add half and half, butter, sour cream, seasoned salt and pepper. Continue mashing potatoes for another minute more until they reach desired consistency.
  • Transfer potatoes to a serving dish and keep warm, then make the gravy! In a small saucepan, combine McCormick Gravy Seasoning Mix with water. Over medium heat, whisk gravy mix and water until heated through and slightly thickened (about 1-2 minutes). Serve over mashed potatoes.
