Method

Place potatoes in a large pot, cover by 1 inch with water and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes.

Drain well and return potatoes to the pot.

Heat potatoes over medium-low heat, stirring often, until dried out and very little steam remains, about 5 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Add half-and-half, butter, nutmeg, salt and pepper to potatoes and mash with a potato masher until smooth.

Vigorously stir in yolks until well combined. Spoon potatoes into 12 (3-inch) mounds on the prepared baking sheet, swirling the tops with the back of the spoon.

Alternatively, transfer mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a large star or round tip and pipe potatoes.

Lightly spray tops with oil and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

(NOTE: To make ahead and freeze, form potatoes on the baking sheet as instructed and then freeze until firm. Transfer to a large, resealable freezer bag or airtight container and freeze up to 3 months. When ready to serve, place frozen potatoes on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet, spray with oil and bake at 400°F until golden brown, about 30 minutes.)
