Mashed Potato Ghosts

October 31: Halloween

Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! What you gonna eat? Ghost taters! We usually serve these quick mashed potato ghosts to go with our Halloween ribs. They are a quick and cute side dish to make when the night gets frenzied with frightfully fun festivities. So get into the “spirit” and serve up some easy mashed potato ghosts on Halloween!



  • Mashed potatoes (homemade or store-bought)
  • Black peppercorns (or black icing gel in a tube)


Stir warm mashed potatoes until creamy. Place in a piping bag using a large round tip. Squeeze out a large base and build to a top point. Place two black peppercorns for the eyes. May heat up in the microwave for a few seconds until hot. Serve immediately.


  • Remind people to take out the black peppercorn eyes before eating the mashed potato ghosts.
