Hi Guys! I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving! I’m sure everyone is stuffed and fridges are loaded up with leftovers. Last year we suggested you all make these with your leftover sweet potatoes or yams and this year we have the most simple and delicious after turkey day snack….using your leftover mashed potatoes (these will also work if you have mashed sweet potatoes)…they’re mashed potato chips! Okay, so they’re duchess potatoes (with a fun little name), but really what’s better than a little bite of star shaped potatoes that are crisp on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside? Not too much. So if you’re looking for something quick and easy to do with those leftover mashed spuds sitting in the fridge….maybe some mashed potato chips are calling your name. Enjoy! xx, Jenny
Mashed Potato Chips (aka Duchess potatoes)
Serves 4 to 6
3 cups leftover mashed potatoes, warmed
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 ounces crumbled goat cheese
2 teaspoons minced thyme
2 teaspoon thinly sliced chives
1 teaspoon minced rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 375˚F.
2. Place potatoes in a bowl and beat in egg and goat cheese until fully incorporated. Fold in herbs and season with salt and pepper.
3. Insert a star tip into a piping bag and fill with the potato mixture.
4. Pipe small stars onto a lightly greased baking sheet (by simply holding the tip against the surface and gently squeezing, without twisting your wrist). Season the center of each star with a small amount of cracked black pepper and lightly sprinkle all stars with salt.
5. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until mashed potato chips begin to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and allow chips to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
