If people are avers to garlic, horseradish is a tasty addition.

Just don't say the name, kids may not eat it. I know as a kid I really thought it had something to do with horses and wouldn't touch it! My 2 granddaughters LOVE my deviled eggs with just a touch of horseradish to give it a little "bite". Of course I explained to them what it was and my story (above), they like hearing my stories as I relate them to the experiences they are currently going through.

I'm a purist when it comes to butter, I can taste when foods have that "trans fat taste" and I am always revolted.

Earth Balance has an innocuous slightly buttery taste and it's fine in cooked foors.

However, on a piece of good bread, I'll stick with Real Butter.
Oh yeah! I had some good onion rye from a vendor at a farmer's market. Toasted with real butter was the best way to eat it.

Isn't it illegal to make mashed potatoes without milk and butter?!!!

Although, sometimes if we're out of milk and butter, I've been known to use either olive oil or vegetable oil with a bit of sesame oil added in. Pure sesame oil has a bit too much flavor. Not sure how to add in for the texture, though. Only oil gets a touch greasy. Good enough for just me, not sure I'd want to serve them to other folks.

We used to have about thirty folks over for Turkey day and there'd be all sorts of eats and can't or won't eats on their dietary lists. I finally gave up and had everyone bring their favorite dish. That way everyone has at least something they liked and with enough people, there'd be plenty for everyone. I never knew there were so many different types of vegetarians, though.

So how are you going to make gravy without milk? Does almond milk made gravy? Does it make good gravy? Maybe some sort of au jus instead of gravy?

Maybe I've always made gravy 'wrong' but have never used milk nor has anyone I know.
White sauce but not 'brown' meat gravy.

I've made mashed potatoes with just Yukon potatoes, white beans, garlic, vegetable broth, and salt and pepper.

I am lactose intolerant so at Thanksgiving time, I make "milk" for the mashed potatoes by reconstituting coffee mate creamer with water. Heat a cup of water in the microwave to boiling and add the coffee mate to your consistency of "half and half", "whole milk" or one of the lower fat versions. I use margarine for the butter. The coffee mate flavored mashed potatoes taste amazing - much richer than that made with regular milk and no strange flavors.
