Duchess Baked Potatoes2018-01-05
Place potatoes in a large pot and pour in water to cover by 2″; season with salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high. Reduce heat and simmer until a paring knife very easily slides through potatoes, 2535 minutes. Drain and let cool slightly. Preheat oven to 425°F. Whisk egg yolks, garlic, cream, sour cream, butter, and peppercorns in a large bowl; season generously with salt. Peel potatoes and pass flesh through a ricer or a food mill (or mash them by hand if you dont mind a few lumps) directly into bowl with egg mixture. Fold in gently (be careful not to overmix). Transfer to a 3-quart baking dish and decoratively shingle or swirl surface. Bake, rotating once, until golden brown and slightly puffed, 3040 minutes. Dish can be assembled 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Increase bake time by 510 minutes.
