New Potatoes and Gravy

Southern Home Cooking Makes 8 servings
Prep Time: 20 min.
Cooking Time: 20 min.


  • 3 pounds new potatoes, washed, bad spots removed, and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • water to cover the potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  1. To a saucepan, add the potatoes and water to cover. Add the salt.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are almost tender.
  3. While potatoes are cooking, pour the flour into a medium-size bowl.
  4. Make a cold roux by slowly pouring the milk into the center of the flour and whisk together. You want a consistency of pancake batter.
  5. Now mix about half of the potato water into cold roux.
  6. While the potatoes still simmering, add the butter and pepper, and then slowly pour the roux into the pan. (Add just enough roux to thicken.) Again you want the gravy to have the consistency of pancake batter.
