Potato Marraine

Yield 2 dozen


  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup hot milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Fresh parsley sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Place potatoes in saucepan; add 1/2 teaspoon salt and water to cover. Set aside for 1 hour.

  2. Cook potatoes over medium heat for 30 minutes or until tender. Remove from pan; mash, and beat well with electric mixer until potatoes are smooth.

  3. Combine butter, milk, remaining salt, and pepper; add to potatoes, stirring well. While mixture is warm, shape into 24 oval potato puffs, using about 1/4 cup of mixture for each puff. Place on a greased cookie sheet, and brush each potato puff with egg. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Garnish with parsley.
