1. Spray a light coating of oil on a microwave safe, glass baking pan. Set
2. Prepare the mashed potatoes. Make four to eight cups, depending on the
appetites of those being served.
3. Add the cheese, butter, salt, and pepper to the potatoes and mix well.
The mixture will be just right when it sticks together. If it is too dry,
add the remaining milk; if too moist, add a little flour.

forms, shapes, and sculptures too, if desired.

scoop. Boo! Scary!=20

=80 Bake Potato Ghosts under the broiler on a cookie sheet. Brush with a
little melted butter first. Remove with a spatula.
