Comforting Chicken Fried Steak With Tators And Gravy....

Yes, you can have hearty comfort food year round! Everyone enjoys a classic family dish that instills the basic essentials with a modern day twists. As I frequently mention, I like to prep our dinner ahead of time as much as possible. That beginning said, I was astonished by the fact that I could make mashed potatoes ahead of time and they could keep their creamy form even after being baked in the oven. HH is a potato aristocrat! He adores his meat and potato meals, and is extremely particular about how his "Tators" are fixed. So to get the thumbs up on a make-ahead potato, I was estactic. The creamy smooth texture, with the richness of some thick dairy ingredients, made this side dish a pure treasure for this farm wife. As for the Chicken Fried Steak, well lets just say it takes no time at all to prep and fry and it is one of HH's all time favorites. I have made this numerous times now, and has always been a huge hit at the dinner table. One thing to always keep in mind with CFS is always purchase your meat tenderized. I repeat tenderization (word?) is a key component for orchestrating this dish properly. So go ahead impress your family with an ol' reliable family favorite meal. They will thank you for it.
