Mummified Mashed Idaho® Potatoes

Frighteningly fun, making Mummified Mashed Idaho® Potatoes is a great activity for the kids at a Halloween party. It's a guarantee they'll gobble up these mashed potatoes!

Ingredients:

  • ½ box (4 cups) instant mashed Idaho® potatoes
  • corn husk* (fresh or packaged)
  • assorted vegetables
Recommended vegetables:
  • peas and carrots for eyes
  • herbs for eyelashes
  • black olive slices for eyebrows

  • sliced radishes and olive halves for shoes
  • additional suggestions:
  • red, yellow, green bell pepper slices
  • sugar snap peas
  • cucumbers
  • green beans
  • zucchini
  • eggplant

Directions:

  1. After preparing instant mashed potatoes according to box directions, let potatoes cool to touch.
  2. Place opened cornhusk on plate and put on large dollop (approximately ¾ cup) of potatoes in center of husk. Gently mold potatoes into the oblong shape of a mummy.
  3. Select vegetables to create mummy features and choose approximate location where to place. Carefully press the vegetables into potatoes.
