We'll show you how to make both the KFC mashed potatoes as well as the KFC gravy separately. Skip down if you only want to know how to make the KFC gravy recipe.

KFC Mashed Potatoes and Gravy Recipe - Step 1

Wash and peel the potatoes. Cut into chunks and place into a saucepan. Cover in water and salt. Bring to the boil and boil for about 15 - 18 minutes. Don't place cold potatoes into boiling water as this will make the outside cook too quickly and leave the inside chalky.

To start the gravy, melt the butter in a pan on a low heat. Add the olive oil, but remember you can use vegetable oil if olive is unavailable.

When you have the flour and butter paste as combined as possible, slowly pour in water and combined as you do. Never stop stirring. About 3 cups of water should do for this recipe, but you can add a little more for a thinner gravy and a little less for a thicker one. If you are just starting out on making a roux, it's something you will easily get used to and you'll be able to judge for yourself. Season with the oregano, onion powder and pepper.
