S.O.S. Mashed Potato Delight


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 gold potatoes
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • Optional: Peas or your favorite veggies for added flair


  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Wash the gold potatoes thoroughly and pierce them with a fork.
    • Microwave the potatoes in a grocery sack for about 10 minutes or until they are tender. This steaming method retains the potato’s natural moisture.
    • Once cooked, carefully peel the potatoes and place them in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Brown the Ground Beef:
    • In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until it’s fully browned and cooked through.
    • Drain any excess grease from the beef and return it to the skillet.
  3. Create the Gravy:
    • Sprinkle 1/4 cup of flour over the browned beef, stirring continuously to create a roux.
    • Gradually pour in the milk while stirring to prevent lumps from forming.
    • Continue stirring until the mixture thickens to your desired consistency.
  4. Season the Gravy:
    • Add Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper to the gravy. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste preferences.
  5. Mash the Potatoes:
    • Add the unsalted butter to the cooked and peeled potatoes in the mixing bowl.
    • Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or fork until smooth and creamy.
  6. Combine and Serve:
    • Pour the savory beef gravy over the mashed potatoes, ensuring an even distribution.
    • Optionally, toss in peas or your favorite veggies into the gravy mixture for added color and nutrition.
  7. Enjoy your S.O.S. Mashed Potato Delight!
    • Serve hot and savor the comforting flavors of the creamy mashed potatoes smothered in a rich, seasoned beef gravy.

This budget-friendly meal is a delightful twist on the classic S.O.S., bringing together the heartiness of mashed potatoes with the savory goodness of ground beef gravy. Feel free to customize the recipe with your favorite vegetables or additional seasonings for a personalized touch
