Duchesse Potato Mixture (Pommes Duchesse)

ingredients

serves 10
1 kg potatoes
75 g butter
3 egg yolks
salt and pepper
50 g melted butter

method

1. Boil the potatoes in salted water for 20 - 25 minutes until cooked.

2. Drain and place the pan on the stove to dry out any surplus water.

3. Pass the potatoes through a sieve and return to a clean saucepan. Add the butter, egg yolks and seasoning and stir with a wooden spatule over heat until the potato mixture is well bound but not overmixed.

Note
If the mixture is to be piped through a piping tube it needs to be a little softer than for its other use; to soften it a little more butter should be used. Hand-moulded Duchesse Mixture needs to be on the firm side as there is a tendency for the moulded potato to disintegrate when fried. To adjust it potato flour or powder may be added as necessary.
