Mummified Mashed Idaho Potatoes


Mummified Mashed PotatoesThis recipe, courtesy of the Idaho Potato Commission, is too cute for words! Your favorite mashed potatoes can be used here instead of instant - leftover ones work expecially well.

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
- Corn kernels for ears
- Sliced radishes and olive halves for shoes

Additional suggestions:
- Red, yellow, green bell pepper slices
- Sugar snap peas
- Cucumbers
- Green beans
- Zucchini
- Eggplant
Directions:

After preparing instant mashed potatoes according to box directions, let potatoes cool to touch.
Place opened cornhusk on plate and put on large dollop (approximately 3/4 cup) of potatoes in center of husk. Gently mold potatoes into the oblong shape of a mummy.
Select vegetables to create mummy features and choose approximate location where to place. Carefully press the vegetables into potatoes.

*Note: Corn husks are used to enhance the visual appearance (they are not edible). Mummified Mashed Idaho Potatoes can be prepared without corn husks.

Makes 4 servings.
