The 2020 Holidays Recipe Collection
How you doin’? Are you trying to get everything cooked for the holidays? If you have a lot of people coming over (wait… what am I saying??) and you don’t have two ovens, you’re going to be in a world of hurt. This recipe is for my do-ahead mashed potatoes that are stuffed back in their skins. The texture is like that of mashed potatoes, only better, and can be made ahead of time for the holiday meal.
These potatoes are Joan’s favorite! You can see why with the amount of dairy in these spuds. (Oh… Joan is from Wisconsin—the dairy state—this recipe will keep both the farmers and the cows contented—and you, too!).
Prep time: 40 minutes
Bake time: 1 hour
Re-bake time: 30 to 40 minutes
Yield: 8 Servings
5 to 6 large Russet potatoes, scrubbed clean (5 pounds)
2 tablespoons Kosher salt, divided
3 large egg yolks
4 tablespoon finely grated garlic
1-1/4 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup sour cream
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon finely ground black peppercorns,
1 cup finely-shredded Cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon chopped chives (optional)
2 tablespoons crisp bacon, finely chopped (optional)
ChefSecret: If you’ve done the math then you know you should only need 4 potatoes to make 8 servings. I don’t like the way they look using just the right number of potatoes—they are flat and even with the skin—so I bake a couple of extra potatoes and use the extra meat to overfill the skins; I toss away the extra skins. It is also an insurance policy to have extra skins in case you break one (that happens to me all the time).
Baked & Stuffed Duchess Potatoes can be assembled a day ahead. Cover with food film and refrigerate. Increase re-bake time by 5–10 minutes.
Covid-19 Quip of the Day: I don't know why my fishing buddy is worried about Coronavirus, he never catches anything.
