  • Baking sheet


  • 1 package any flavor Roast or Grill Ready Little Potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp butter or oil
  • 1 (8 oz) container spinach and artichoke dip
  • (To taste) toppings: olives, food coloring, carrots, snap peas, celery


  • Step 1

    If using Roast or Grill Ready Little Potatoes, follow the instructions listed on the box. If using another type of Little Potatoes, toss potatoes in melted butter or oil. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika if desired. Place onto baking sheet and roast at 450 °F for 30 minutes, or until tender. Allow to cool.

  • Step 2

    Slice a small portion from the bottom of each potato so they can stand upright on their own. Cut out a slit in each potato to represent a mouth (you can change the shape up however you see fit: round mouth, smiling mouth, sad mouth, etc.)

  • Step 3

    Arrange potatoes on plate and assemble with desired “monster-like” toppings! Olive slices, carrots cut thin, food coloured spinach dip, etc. You can get really creative here! To get the items to stick, slightly moisten the food with the spinach dip and stick onto potatoes. To attach the ears and hair, make tiny slits with a paring knife and wedge vegetables in place. Finish by placing a desired amount of dip in front of each potato (you can also colour the dip green or another colour to create a truer sense of “vomit.”

  • Step 4

    Serve as is or with toothpicks!
