Marquis Potatoes:

  • 1 ½ pounds russet potatoes
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter softened at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • Salt, pepper, and freshly grated nutmeg to taste

Tomato Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small shallot peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 6 roma tomatoes diced
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Additional fresh parsley for garnish


To make the Marquis Potatoes:

  • Preheat oven to 400˚F. Line two baking sheets with parchment or a silicone liner.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut into 1 inch pieces. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and transfer the potatoes to a large bowl.
  • Mash the potatoes until completely smooth using a potato ricer or masher. Fold in the egg yolks, one at a time, while the potatoes are still warm. Fold in the softened butter and cream. Season to taste with about ¾ teaspoon salt and pinches of freshly ground black pepper and nutmeg.
  • Transfer the creamy potatoes to a large piping bag fitted with a ½ inch star tip. Pipe a small round, enclosed circle of potato about 2 inches wide on the prepared baking sheet. Around the edge of the circle, pipe 3 layers tall, leaving a cavity in the center. Repeat with the remaining potato mixture to make about 20 Marquis Potatoes.
  • Bake the potatoes in the preheated oven until the tops are golden, about 20 minutes, rotating the baking sheets around the 10 minute mark.
  • Once golden, transfer the baked Marquis Potatoes to a serving platter using a spatula. Serve immediately with desired sauce.

To make the tomato sauce:

  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Add the sliced shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened. Stir in the garlic and cook just until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Add the chopped roma tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are starting to break down to create a sauce, but still holding some of their shape, 20-30 minutes. Stir in the chopped parsley and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon the sauce into the cavities of the cooked Marquis Potatoes and serve immediately.



  • Make sure to mash the tender potatoes until completely smooth. Any lumps will get stuck in the tip during piping.
  • I used a silicone macaron baking mat with its circular guidelines perfect for consistent piping.
  • If you do not have a piping bag or a star tip, you can make your own using a plastic bag. To make your own piping bag, cut one corner of a large plastic bag into a "W" shape. This will give the Marquis Potatoes a similar appearance to piping with a star tip.
