How to Make Farm-Style Potato Swirl

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cut potatoes into cubes. Place in a large saucepan. Cover with water. Add a dash of salt.
  • 2Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes, until potatoes are just tender. Drain.
  • 3Mash potatoes. Add green onion and garlic; mix to blend.
  • 4Add butter, hot milk, egg yolks, pepper, and nutmeg. Whip until light and fluffy. Add parsley.
  • 5Reserve 12 perfect slices of sausage. Heat the rest of the sausage in the microwave for a minute or two (just enough so that it is hot). Add mozzarella cheese, the hot sausage slices, and Parmesan cheese to the mashed potatoes.
  • 6Spoon mixture into a buttered ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with herbs. Arrange reserved sausage slices on top like a clock face.
  • 7Heat under the broiler until lightly browned and hot, 5 to 7 minutes.
