Gravy in a Can works for ME!

Nothing says Comfort Food like Porkchops in Gravy with Mashed Potatoes! BUT making gravy from scratch can be pretty time-consuming. I was hesitant to try canned gravy but when you add in some mushrooms and onions, it tastes just like home-made! Well, maybe not EXACTLY like home-made but close enough and VERY yummy! This is also the first time I've ever made mashed potatoes and they turned out great as well. I used those cute Petite Potatoes and mashed them with the skin. Doesn't this look like Comfort on a Plate???

Ingredients: (4 servings)

1 lbs petite potatoes, cut in half

½ c buttermilk
¼ c (½ stick) butter, cut into chunks
¼ c sour cream
1 c sliced fresh mushrooms
1 small onion, chopped
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
4 boneless pork chops
1 (12-oz) jar gravy
Salt and pepper


1. Put potatoes into a large pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain and return potatoes to pot. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mash with potato masher, gradually adding buttermilk, then butter, then sour cream.

2. Meanwhile, in large skillet, cook mushrooms and onion in oil until tender; remove from skillet.

3. In same skillet, cook pork chops until browned on both sides; season with salt and pepper. Stir in gravy.

4. Return mushroom mixture to skillet. Cover and simmer 10 to 15 minutes or until pork chops are done.

5. Place mashed potatoes and pork chops on a serving platter. Pour gravy mixture on top.
