- 1 cup Land O Lakes® Half and Half
- 2 Half-Sticks (8 tbsp) Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sour cream

For the gravy

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.
