Mashed Idaho® Potato Ghost

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds Idaho® potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons lightly salted butter
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • black olive slices
Other Materials for Creating the Ghosts:
  • wax paper
  • pen
  • scissors

Directions:

  1. Cook potatoes in large pot of boiling water until tender.
  2. Drain, transfer to a mixing bowl and mash with the butter. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Using the pen, draw different shaped ghosts on the wax paper. Use your imagination - make them tall, short, fat and skinny!
  4. Cut out each ghost and place the cut out on a plate. Using the wax paper as your guide, spoon the mashed potatoes onto the cut-out ghost. Use the black olive slices for eyes or decorate as you wish.
Time-saving Tip: Use instant mashed Idaho® potato flakes instead of fresh potatoes. Both taste great!
