Is there any better, more versatile comfort food than the humble potato? Whether baked, fried, mashed or any of the other infinite ways to prepare it – potatoes are to me like the warm embrace of a favorite childhood blanket – and even better, they clean up nice enough to take to a fancy party! Take the classic French gougère, a marvelous, delicate pastry with a crispy shell and an airy interior – and stuff it with a comforting blend of mashed potato, sour cream, bacon bits and chives. Your friends will love you for it – if you can make it to their door without having them all to yourself.
