- Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
- Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Saute celery and onion for about 8 minutes, or until tender.
- To the cooked potatoes add the celery and onion, 2 tablespoons butter, 4 tablespoons cream, celery salt and ground black pepper. With an electric mixer on low, beat until desired consistency is reached.
- To make the gravy melt 2 teaspoons butter in a small saucepan. Add flour and cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Gradually whisk in chicken stock and cook over medium-high heat until thickened. Stir in remaining cream and onion powder; heat through.
Onion powder is available in Asian markets; in a pinch, try simply omitting it from the recipe.

Excellent recipe - the celery and onion added even more flavor than I thought they would (although I did make the recipe the night before and reheated it the next day while the turkey was resting, so that could account for the extra flavor throughout). The leftovers made superb potato cakes.-04 Dec 2004
I found this recipe looking for something to do with celery hearts. Very good vegetarian meal. I just ate a bigass heap of this with some corn on the cob. The gravy is delicious and creamy, and the celery and onions give the taters a great flavor. I added some garlic and pepper to the gravy. Zang!-02 Jul 2004
This was a really tasty recipe and a great change from the ordinary mashed potatoes. I served it with grilled pork chops (using my secret of marinating the chops in chinese oyster sauce for several hours) and my husband is still talking about it!!! Thanx!!!-13 Dec 2001
