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.
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! :)
