Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
- 24 small elongated potatoes (plump fingerlings work well)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 avocado, halved, pit removed and peeled
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 1 bunch chives, snipped
Here's how to make it:
- Use the end of a small, sharp knife to carefully carve faces into the potatoes by carefully digging the point of the knife 1/4 to 1/2 inch into the potato and carve out eyes, noses and mouths. Place the potatoes on a baking tray, drizzle with the oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Make sure all the faces are facing upwards. Roast in a preheated 400-degree F oven for 40 to 45 minutes until golden and crispy and, of course, shrunken and ghoulish.
- If making the avocado dip, mash the avocado in a bowl with a fork. Stir in the sour cream, garlic and season with salt and pepper. Add the lemon juice and whisk to combine. Top with the chives.
