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
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Sour cream
  • Scallions

How to make it

  1. Cut each potato lengthwise into 1/2-inch slabs. Cut the rounded tip off one end of each slab to create a ghost shape.

  2. 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.)

  3. Bake at 400º F for 30 minutes or until a fork pierces the potatoes easily.

  4. 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.
