Suzette was a French housewife. She baked some potatoes for supper for her husband who was out working in the fields. He came home late......the potatoes were cold, so Suzette, being the ever resourceful French housewife.......cut them in half, scooped out the potato from the shell, mashed them with about 6 lbs. of French butter and as much cream, returned them to the shell and baked them under a blanket of gruyère cheese. But at the last minute she decided to make it really fancy-schmancy and pipe some potatoes into rosettes all along the sides. And voilà, the potato Suzette was born.
Suzette had a lot of time on her hands. Poor Suzette.
