    Queen Dragon Mom's Note:

    This is a make-do recipe that I came up with after finding my pastry tube mysteriously gone. Since I couldn't pipe the potatoes as usual, I had to do something else. Voila, a very attractive side dish and easy to make.They are cooked as for a custard to make sure they do not dry out and they will puff much nicer with the moisture in the oven. I would also put in onion puree and perhaps minced chives for more color and flavor. Using a food processor to mix everything makes the whole process much easier and I like the consistency of the taters better. Since this is so basic, almost any savory seasoning can be used, depending on what your main course will be.
