Stage 1 - 10 min.

Prepare the sliced duchess potatoes:

Put 300 g potato purée in a bowl with 3 egg yolks, salt and pepper.

Mix with a whisk or wooden spatula until thoroughly mixed.

Stage 2 - 5 min.

Place a little of the mixture in a sausage shape on a piece of cooking film, then roll up like a big boiled sweet or cracker (whatever image best suits you...).

Stage 3 - 20 min.

Tie one end of the roll then squeeze the mixture up to this end by pressing on the open end. Tie the second end and roll the package on the work surface until it is nice and round.

The aim is to produce a roll of about the same diameter as the sausage you have chosen, but don't worry if you don't manage this.

Continue making rolls like this until you have used up all the mixture.

Stage 4 - 40 min.

To serve, arrange alternate slices of duchess potatoes and sausage, then coat with Mont d'Or fondue.

Serve immediately.

Remarks

The potatoes can be prepared and poached beforehand, even a few days bafore, then kept in their plastic film in the fridge.

I have a preference for Morteau sausage and Mont d'Or cheese, but if you don't have any, you can use another sausage (smoked if possible) and another cheese, preferably one that is fairly soft.

this is a real winter recipe with plenty of calories, as you will have noticed...
