Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! Happy Festivus! Happy Bah, Humbug day! Should we celebrate with some Mashed Potato Snowmen? I think these are a bit cuter than my first ever mashed potato snowmen that I made in 2008. Those had black olive smiles and hats though, and these have no smiles or hats, so maybe the older ones were cuter?
Mr. Wing-It said they looked like chubby little birds! I kind of see it! Anyway, these guys have peppercorn eyes, tiny baby carrot noses, steamed green bean scarves, peppercorn buttons, and parsley arms. Do I really need to tell you what that little muffin-shaped meatless meatloaf is? It's The PPK's beet burger recipe baked in muffin tins at 375 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Me? Obsessed with a recipe? Never.
Pea buttons are also cute!
Black eyed pea buttons!
They can also have pea eyes instead of peppercorn eyes, if you fear an unsuspecting toddler might eat them and consequently develop a lifelong fear of hot, spicy snowmen! This video shows two ways to make a snowman: one using cookie scoops to pile up the mashed potatoes, and another way using spoons. I hope you enjoy watching it, and building them, if you decide to make your own Mashed Potato Snowmen! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season, or a wonderful regular season if you are not much of a holiday person like myself! :)
