These Potato Skin Ghosts, served for dinner or as part of a larger Halloween party, are the perfect energy food before an evening of collecting candy.
What you'll need
- Washed, unpeeled potatoes (depending on the size of your potatoes, expect about 3 ghosts per spud)
- Olive oil
- Seasoned salt
- Onion powder
- Garlic salt
- Sour cream
Cut each potato lengthwise into 1/2-inch slabs. Cut the rounded tip off one end of each slab to create a ghost shape.
Grease a baking sheet and lay the potato slabs on it (pieces with skin go skin-side down). Brush the top of each slab with olive oil and season with seasoned salt, onion powder, and garlic salt. (Suggestion: combine 1 teaspoon of each spice in a bowl, then sprinkle about 1/8 teaspoon of the mixture over each slab.)
Bake at 400º for 30 minutes or until a fork pierces the potatoes easily.
Remove the potatoes from the oven and cool for 10 minutes, then "ice" them with sour cream to create a tasty white ghost. Add slices of scallion for eyes and a mouth.
