How to Make Creamy Riced Potatoes


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup crème fraîche
  • 6 ounces (1 cup) smoked cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced thyme
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3/4 pounds green tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 chilled puff pastry shells

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place puff pastry shells on sheet tray and pierce centers with a fork. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until light golden brown. If the centers of the pastries rise, pierce shells a few more times to deflate. Decrease oven temperature to 350°.

  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks, crème fraîche, cheddar, thyme, nutmeg, and season with salt and pepper. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the mixture into each of the shells, top with a few tomato quarters. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and tomatoes are lightly roasted and serve.
