I love Duchess potatoes:

I have made the "mountains" with sac a poche and I have put them over a 
baking paper:

                       *Duchess cheese Potatoes*

Category: potatoes
Nb persons: 4

For 20  Duchess
                400g   potatoes - peeled
                70g    reggiano cheese
                 50g   butter - liquefied
                  1    egg - whole
                  1    egg yolk
             1/2 tsp   nutmeg
             1/2 tsp   white pepper - grated at the moment
               1 tsp   salt

Light the oven and bring it to 220°C - 425F (Healing up and down)-
Peel potatoes and cut them in 2 cm (3/4''). Put this pieces in boiling and 
salted water till they are soft. When potatoes are ready, drain in a 
colander. Then put them in a baking pan and put in the oven to dry for 2 -3 
minutes.
Mash potatoes and put the purč in a bowl. Add all the ingredients of the 
recipe (I haven't wrote, but if you want you can also put some minced 
parsley), and mix well. Let the dough rest for about 15 minutes (better in 
the fridge).
Cover a baking pan with oiled paper, then take a sac a poche (with curly 
top)  and put inside the dough. Make 20 little mountains of dough and put in 
the oven. Cook till Duchess are golden.
Serve as side dish (for example with zucchini filled with meat) or entrčč.
