  • 2 egg yolks
  • 50 g of Parmesan cheese
  • Nutmeg
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Peel and rinse the potatoes, then boil them in salted water (using just enough water to cover the potatoes) on low heat and with the lid on for 45 minutes.

Drain the water and mash the potatoes with a potato press or a fork.

Mix the mashed potatoes with one egg yolk, finely grated Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
