Duchesse Potato Recipe

Duchesse Potatoes

This Duchesse potato recipe is a wonderful way to use leftover mashed potatoes. It’s an easy potato casserole recipe and great make ahead party potatoes recipe.

Tip

If you want to go all out and make this recipe look amazing, use a wide cake decorating tip to make pretty fluted piles of the potatoes before baking (as in the photo above).

If you are more like me, baking it in the casserole dish is just fine.

Either way it is a great way to prepare mashed potatoes to look a bit “grander” for entertaining.

  1. Here is a quick recipe using mashed potatoes from a visitor to the older version of the site:

    Hamburg Gravy over Mashed Potatoes.

    (Ontario, Canada)

    It’s an upside down shephards pie…

    Pan fry the hamburger in a drizzle of oil breaking it up in small bits- add shaved onion if you choose) when all the pink in the meat is gone – add a tin of mushroom OR onion gravy..

    Cook and mash potatoes.

    place a scoop of potatoes on each plate and make a well in the center, pour the gravy over…

    A pound of Hamburger and 4 medium potatoes will serve 4-6 persons…
