Yummy Mummy Potato Heads

A Halloween recipe full of spooky fun for kids to make and eat. Courtesy of Idaho Potato Commission


4 medium Idaho® Russet or Idaho® Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed (about 2-lb. total)
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
Salt and pepper, to taste
3/4 c. pizza sauce
16 slices turkey pepperoni, coarsely chopped
32 pitted ripe olives
8 mozzarella string cheese, unwrapped, room temperature
16 capers
1/4 of a red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-in. cubes


1Preheat oven to 400°F.
2Slightly trim opposite sides of potatoes; cut each potato lengthwise into fourths, creating four flat ovals or "planks."
3Place the potatoes on a large foil-lined baking sheet. Brush both sides of the potatoes with the oil, sprinkle evenly with the oregano, salt and black pepper.
4Bake 8 min., turn and bake 7 min. or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and turn potatoes again.
5Spoon equal amounts of the pizza sauce over each, (about 2 tsp. per slice). Sprinkle evenly with the pepperoni.
6Place an olive near the center of each potato slice to form a "nose." Pull off thin strips of the cheese and lay across the potato to form the "bandages." (Note: the cheese may hang over the edges of the potato slightly. They will form the shape of the potato when melted.) Cut the remaining olives in half lengthwise and place two halves above the "nose" to form the "eye sockets."
7Place capers and bell pepper cubes in the center of each olive half to form the "eyeballs."
8Bake 3-4 min. or until cheese has melted slightly. Remove with a flat spatula and place on a large serving platter. Serve hot or room temperature.
