Pommes Duchesse, also known as Duchess potatoes, are basically some puréed potatoes that includ egg yolk, butter and seasonings. They can be simply shaped into a mound with a spoon or piped through a pastry bag into various shapes. The edges of the piped potatoes are crisp after baking, while the interior remains soft and creamy. Serve duchess potatoes as a side along with a good portion of meat.

  • 400 g Potatoes, peeled, roughly chopped
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 50 g butter, melted
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt and white pepper to taste
  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water. Bring it to the boil. Boil for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain. Transfer to a bowl. Mash with a potato ricer or using a large metal spoon, press potato through a fine sieve into a bowl. Add egg yolk and half the butter. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  2. Preheat oven to 220C/428F. Line a baking sheet with baking paper. Spoon the potato mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe swirled rosettes onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle remaining butter over potato. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned.

These are so pretty. I'll bet the crispy edges are a nice little surprise. I would never think to add nutmeg to potatoes but I'll bet it's delicious!

This looks so fun I may just have to make one of those homemade piping bags. It won't as cool as yours, but it's still a neat idea.

I never knew what these were called, but the crispy edges have me drooling. Who needs butter or sour cream with potatoes like these?

[Reply]
Elisabeth 30/10/11 00:29

Wow, Angie-these pommes Duchesse is such a simple little potato...but you've crowned it with "beauty"...and presented, as SUCH!
This is something they would serve at a wedding party, or an elite country club.
Hugs,
