A recipe for Whipped Potato Nests with Rosemary Creme Fraiche and Truffle Carpaccio

These whipped potato nests are an easy-to-make and impressive finger food that might soon become your favorite go-to appetizer recipe. Enjoy them hot or at room temperature. We made ours gluten free by using a gluten free panko and skipped a step by using leftover mashed potatoes, but that isn’t required.



  • 14 ounces seasoned mashed potatoes
  • ¼ cup rosemary leaves
  • 2 tablespoons lemon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon, fresh cracked black pepper
  • ¼ cup mascarpone cheese
  • 2 ounces grated, parmesan
  • 1 egg
  • oil for frying
  • 4-6 ounces panko bread crumbs or gluten free alternative
  • 1-2 ounces of truffle carpaccio in oil


  1. Crack an egg into a bowl with seasoned mashed potatoes and parmesan and mix together.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350℉
  3. Pour the panko bread crumbs into a shallow dish.
  4. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat.
  5. Use a 2 Tablespoon cookie scoop to drop a single mashed potato ball into the panko crumbs and gently turn it to cover all sides. Carefully form it into a ball and drop it into the oil to fry the bottom side. Use your thumb to make a well and form a “nest”. Once the bottom is golden brown, use a spatula to transfer it to a greased cookie sheet.
  6. Repeat until you’ve used all of the mashed potatoes.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes.
  8. While they are baking, blend the lemon juice, mascarpone, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  9. Remove the nests from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before adding the mascarpone mix.
  10. Top with truffle carpaccio and a drizzle of the truffle oil.
  11. Serve atop a microgreen salad as a side or alone as a poppable appetizer.
