Halloween - Booo - tatoes
Contributed by Horizon Organic

Super for a lowfat Halloween side dish. Makes about 10 ghosts. 

Ingredients:
2 cups chopped white potatoes, peeled

1/8 cup Horizon Organic(tm) 2% Reduced Fat milk

1/2 garlic clove, crushed

1 Tbs. Horizon Organic(tm) cream cheese 

1 Tbs. Horizon Organic(tm) shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 tsp. sal
t
1/8 tsp pepper

1/2 19oz. can black beans, drained


Directions:
Place potatoes in large sauce pan, cover with water, and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cook for about 15 minutes or until soft. Drain water and add milk, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher or beat with an electric mixer until creamy. 

Scoop potatoes into a pastry bag without a decorator's tip. Squeeze the ghosts onto a lightly buttered cookie sheet so they stand upright about 3 to 4 inches high. Press two similar sized black beans into each ghost's head to create eyes. 

Just before serving, warm the ghosts in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for about 5 min.
