Plan A Fun Meal October 31st with Potato Ghost

1 1/2 lbs russett potatoes, peeled and quartered length-wise
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tbsp heavy cream
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp reserved liquid from cooking potatoes
Salt and White Pepper (you want to keep them white for ghosts, no black flecks)
After mashing
1/4 c parmesan cheese
1 Large egg, beaten
Peppercorns or black sesame seeds

put potatoes in saucepan
add 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Add water until potatoes are covered.
Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes, or until done.
Melt butter and stir in cream.
Drain water from potatoes, reserving some.
Put hot potatoes into a bowl.
Add cream and melted butter, and 1 Tbs reserved liquid.
Use potato masher to mash potatoes until well mashed.
Use a spoon to continue stirring/mashing, adding more liquid until you get desired consistency.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Now stir in parmesan cheese and 1 already beaten egg.
Put potaotes in piping bag or ziploc with a corner cut off, and pipe your ghosts onto a lined baking sheet.
Put black peppercorns in for eyes (black sesame seeds work too)
Put in 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.

*** You can use instant mashed potatoes and achieve the same thing by piping the mashed potatoes out into ghost form!
