Crispy on the outside fluffy in the middle. What's not to like?!
Duchess potatoes are a 1970's classic that classed up any roast. Mixing mashed potatoes, egg yolk and nutmeg, they were then piped onto a baking sheet and put into the oven until golden.
One savvy contributor to the Facebook group Share Kmart Air Fryer Recipes Australia has come up with a fast and easy updated version of the retro French side dish - and it only requires one ingredient!
The clever home cook, Chloe, shared how it's done, along with pictures of her mouthwatering results. She piped the "left over mash from last night's dinner" on "baking paper in my 5.3L air-fryer" at "180 [degrees] for 15 minutes".
The post immediately blew up, gathering 500 comments and 2000 likes in under 12 hours. People commented about how they also make air-fryer potato swirls and suggested various flavouring additions that they like to incorporate:
"We did this too but put panko crumb on the outside and added a bit of garlic and bacon," wrote one group member. Another asked, "Wonder if we could do this with cauliflower mash?"
While many others joked, "Who even has leftover mashed potato?"
