upside down egg shape. With a straw, punch out the eyes and mouth and use a skewer for the nose holes. (refer to video). In the end you should have nice screaming faces.

-Heat oil to 350• f

-Drop in 3 potato faces at a time in the oil. Cook for 1 minute each side for a total of 2 minutes.

-Bake at 400• f for 5 minutes for an extra crispy exterior.

-Serve Immediately and Enjoy with you favorite dipping sauce.


*Refer to the video for how to make the face shape. You can always get creative and put your own spin on the faces.

*If the straw gets clogged up by the dough, clear it out with a skewer.

*When draining the boiled potatoes, make sure all the water has dripped out.

* make sure to place on a rack after frying to let the oil drip off. This helps them stay crispy.
