Corn kernels, green onion curls, and other tidbits turn into wickedly funny faces on ready-made mashed potatoes.
Updated May 9, 2014

Ingredients

Ingredients for faces, as listed below

  • Eyes: peas, corn kernels, mushrooms, olive halves
  • Eyelashes: herbs
  • Eyebrows: ripe olive slices, zigzag-cut bell pepper
  • Nose: pickle, sliced radish
  • Teeth: carrot wedges
  • Mouth: red bell pepper slice
  • Ears: corn kernels, broccoli florets
  • Hair: shredded cheese, broccoli florets, shredded carrots, green onion curls

Steps

  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat milk, water and margarine to a rapid boil over medium-high heat (watch carefully to avoid boilover).
  • 2
    Remove from heat. Stir in potatoes just until well blended. Let stand 4 to 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, cut 4 pieces plastic wrap, about 9x12 inches each. Line insides of 4 (6-oz) custard cups with plastic wrap; spray with cooking spray. Divide potatoes evenly among custard cups. Press firmly; turn upside down onto individual serving plates.
  • 4
    Remove plastic wrap from each potato mound; choose from suggested ingredients above to make faces. Serve immediately.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you don’t have 6-oz custard cups, try shaping the mashed potato heads using a small bowl, or wet your hands and form them by hand.
  • tip 2
    Set out bowls of the ingredients for faces, and let your kids use whatever they like to create their own monsters.
