Sometimes a meal calls for a little something extra, and these Duchess Sweet Potatoes are perfect for a special occasion or holiday, or when you’re just looking to give an everyday meal a special touch.
Duchess potatoes are an elegantly displayed, rich and delicious mashed potato dish. Once they are formed, they are baked to create a light and crispy outside, and a soft and creamy inside.
Traditionally, duchess potatoes are made with white potatoes, but our version incorporates a mix of both Yukon gold and sweet potatoes for added flavor, as well as added color. We use a touch of nutmeg along with some salt and pepper to season the potatoes in our recipe, but you can vary the flavors and seasonings based on your own preferences.
While these duchess sweet potatoes look very fancy, they are actually quite simple to make – use a pastry bag and a large star tip to pipe the potato swirls on a baking sheet, and then bake them to crispy perfection after a light brushing of an egg wash. Your dinner guests will surely be impressed by this elegant and delicious side dish!
