Pommes Duchesse

Serving Size: 4
Preparation Time: 0:30

 
Ingredients
  • 1-1/4 lb potatoes Idaho—boil and peel, riced
  • 1 each egg yolk
  • 1 tbl butter—(1/2 oz)
  • salt and pepper—to taste
  • 1 tbl or so parmesan cheese—to taste
Preparation
  1. Boil 3 medium Idaho potatoes in lightly salted water until they are easily pierced by a knife. Peel them and rice them. If you do not have a potato ricer, mash them well or rub through a wire strainer. You want 1 lb riced potatoes, about 2-1/2 cups.
  2. Mix in the butter 1/2 oz=1 tbl. first and then the egg yolk. (Save the white for another use.) Season with salt and pepper to taste. Some people like a pinch of nutmeg, freshly ground.
  3. These can be put through a pastry bag with a star tube to use as a border, or can be piped onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet and baked in a 400 degrees F oven till nicely browned. If you are going to put them under the broiler and want them to brown quickly, beat an egg yolk with a pinch of salt and a tbl of water. Brush lightly with this egg wash.

Croquette Potatoes: The mix can be chilled and rolled into a broomstick shape (or balls, or pears, or what ever shape you like) on a floured board, and cut into 2 inch lengths, then dipped into beaten egg and then bread crumbs* or corn flakes or slivered almonds and deep fried at 350 degrees F till golden brown. Makes 12 pcs. (One of my favorite foods.)

*3 slices of very stale bread coarsely chopped
