how cute are these potatos?


 no one will leave these cuties on their plate!

Potato Ghosts

Serves8

  • Active time:30 min
  • Start to finish:1 3/4 hr
You and your guests will be utterly charmed when you see how easily mashed potatoes can be transformed into a gaggle of ghosts. Simply form them into pointy mounds and then personify—no, make that “ghostify” —them with seed “eyes.” Don’t be surprised if these become a new family must-have for Halloweens to come.
  • 4 lb large boiling potatoes (preferably white-fleshed)
  • 3/4 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • Nigella seeds (sometimes mislabeled “black onion seeds”) or caraway seeds for garnish
  • Equipment:
    a potato ricer or a food mill fitted with medium disk; a pastry bag with 3/4-inch plain tip
  • Peel and quarter potatoes, then cover with water in a 4-qt pot and season well with salt. Simmer, partially covered, until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • While potatoes are simmering, heat butter and milk in a small saucepan until butter is melted. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.

  • Preheat oven to 400°F with rack in middle.

  • Drain potatoes and force through ricer into a large bowl (or mixer bowl if using stand mixer). Beat in milk mixture, yolks, and 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper with an electric mixer at low speed until combined.

  • Spread about one-third of potatoes in a buttered 1 1/2-qt shallow ovenproof dish. Transfer remaining potatoes to pastry bag. Pipe potatoes close together into 2 1/2- to 3-inch-high pointed mounds to form “ghosts” and garnish each mound with 2 seeds for “eyes.”

  • Bake until tips of ghosts are golden and potatoes are firm, 20 to 25 minutes.
     
  • Cooks’ note:

  • Potatoes can be piped into dish 1 day ahead and chilled, loosely covered with plastic wrap.

The Buffalo Bills wholesale nfl jerseys placed Watkins on injured reserve Friday, cheap nfl jerseys the team announced. The Bills also announced they filled Nike Roshe Run Watkins' roster spot by claiming wide receiver Justin Hunter.

Watkins' move to IR puts him on the Nike Free Run shelf for at least eight weeks, and brings a temporary nfl jerseys store end to the weekly question of "will Sammy Nike Air Max 2015 Shoes Watkins play Sunday?" It's been an inquiry since Watkins complained of discomfort in his foot -- which was surgically repaired in the offseason -- after the Bills' Week NFL Jerseys 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
