New Halloween Recipes Featured on

EAGLE, ID, October 26, 2011 – It’s a's a's an Idaho® potato? The Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) has recently enriched its website with a selection of new Halloween recipes. From Creepy Crawly Idaho® Potatoes to Spooktacular Idaho® Potato Soup, these hauntingly delicious dishes are certain to put any trick-or-treater in the Halloween spirit.

“These Halloween recipes perfectly showcase the versatility of the Idaho® potato. How many other vegetables can be ‘disguised’ as a purple vampire bat, a ghost or even a green coiled snake?” said Frank Muir, President/CEO, IPC. “No matter how you prepare your Idaho® potato though, you can’t disguise its great flavor and nutritional profile.”
