I searched the internet for a recipe to use up some left over mashed potatoes.
This is what I found and made. It's simple, easy, and a great way to use up left over mashed potatoes. This is one recipe that I always come to when I have leftover mashed potatoes. I once made these and I wasn't serving them right away, so I let them cool down then I froze them. A few weeks later I removed them from the freezer let them defrost and they were just as good. I have even added leftover chicken pieces and leftover meatloaf to this and it was yummy.
I don't know where this recipe originated, but it has been an old stand by on my mom's dinner party tables for years. It actually bakes up to look quite impressive. Please don't try to substitute fresh mashed potatoes (believe me I have tried) the instant box stuff provides the perfect texture.
These are the best Duchess potatoes you will ever have, I developed this recipe, you will love these! They are a must with prime rib roast or roast pork dinner! Use only russet potatoes for this, and only butter not margarine! If you do not have a pastry bag, just drop 12 mounds onto baking sheet and swirl with a spoon to create a desired pattern.
One summer our nephew, Edward, lived with us and worked on fences. He is an excellent home chef and has always been interested in cooking. One night that summer we took him to dinner at K-Paul's in New Orleans, Paul Prudhomme's restaurant. Edward loved the mashed potatoes so much he asked our waitress what the secret was and she said evaporated milk and a bit of the cooking water. Well, ever since then I have made my mashed potatoes with evaporated milk and the flavor cannot be beat.
