I love Sunday Supper every week but this week, I am super excited. This is such a special event because the Sunday Supper Family is sharing their favorite Fun and Spooky Potato Recipes. We are thrilled to have Idaho® Potatoes join us around the family table to celebrate this fun event. We love their taters and this was a great opportunity to blend our creative and culinary talents to come up with a delicious Halloween recipe that would be fun for families to make.
My biggest challenge is getting the kids fed on Halloween night in time to go trick or treating. I wanted to create a dish that was fun and spooky but that would also be a great meal for the family. My kids love meatballs and mashed potatoes and these stuffed potato spiders were a huge hit when tested on them. I love that you can make large stuffed potato spiders as a meal or make little babies to take to a party as appetizers. These stuffed potato spiders can be made ahead of time and left in the fridge until you are ready to pop them in the oven. If you want to take them up to the next level, you can also fry them. But as a busy mom — ain’t nobody got time for that!
- 2 cups mashed Idaho® potatoes, hot
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 6 tablespoons butter, softened
- 4 teaspoons flour
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 pound ground beef
- 8 tablespoons tomato sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
- fried chow mein noodles
- 2 olives
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Mix together the mashed Idaho® potatoes, eggs, butter and 2 tablespoons flour.
- Set aside and let cool.
- In a frying pan, heat the olive oil and add the ground beef and cook until no longer pink.
- Stir with a wooden spoon to break up the meat.
- Add the tomato sauce, garlic, oregano and salt to the cooked ground beef. Mix thoroughly.
- Turn the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.
- Remove from heat and allow to cool.
- Spread a spoonful of the potato dough mix in the palm of your hand. Make an indentation in the middle and stuff it with one tablespoon of the meat mixture.
- Cover the filling with more potato dough and shape into a ball.
- Add the breadcrumbs to a large dish.
- Dust the ball lightly with the remaining flour and roll in the breadcrumbs, until evenly coated.
- Place the balls on a large baking sheet.
- Repeat until mix is used up.
- Melt the remaining 3 tablespoons butter.
- Brush all the stuffed potato balls with butter.
- Bake for approximately 20 - 25 minutes or until they are golden brown.
- Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
- Slice the olives into tiny squares or rectangles for the eyes.
- Carefully add the chow mein noodles as legs.
- Add the tiny olive pieces as eyes.
How fun are these recipes? I don’t know how we will be able to choose what to make this year for Halloween!
