I stumbled across this one while trying to think of something a) different to do with spuds, b) a little special, and c) which would not add to the burden of getting a Christmas lunch to the table. It ticked all the boxes, being easily prepped and fridge-kept the day before. Repetition last month wasn't as successful texture-wise, as I took my eye off the potatoes and they overcooked. What ended up as truffled mash still went down well, though.
