  • 3
    Into large bowl, pass potatoes through ricer, or mash very well until smooth. Stir in 4 tablespoons of the butter until melted. Stir in whipping cream, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, the pepper and nutmeg until combined. Stir in egg yolks, one at a time, until combined. Transfer potato mixture to large decorating bag fitted with large star tip.

    Pipe potatoes on cookie sheets in mounds, 3 inches wide and 2 inches tall, spaced 2 inches apart. Freeze uncovered about 15 minutes or until firm.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 3 tablespoons butter uncovered on High 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in remaining 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese. Gently brush mixture over potato mounds.

Expert Tips

It’s best to grate the Parmesan cheese from a block for this recipe, instead of using pregrated cheese, for optimum flavor and freshness.

Potato mounds can be covered and refrigerated up to 1 day in advance of baking. Let stand 15 minutes at room temperature before brushing with butter-cheese mixture and baking.
