Something Special Mashed Potatoes

My son has CF, and mashed potatoes with brown gravy are one of his favorites. My mom used to make something similar, and I upped the calories by not using light sour cream or neufchatel cream cheese and gave it more flavor with the onion powder. It gives him the extra fat and calories he needs.
