When thinking about Halloween special food, the easiest thing is to resort to cookies and sweets decorated with this theme, but we have already seen many recipes for regular salty dishes that can also be adapted, such as this recipe for monstrous stuffed potatoes. You’ll need an oven to cook, so pay attention to the presto pizza oven reviews.
The good thing that they have ideas like this is that it is not necessary to be very handy to prepare them if we are left a little deformed more “monstrous” will be. I got the idea from this blog, and although I have only used peppers and olives for decoration, you can be as creative as you want.

Preheat the oven to 200ºC, wash and dry the potatoes well. Wrap each one in foil and bake them for about 40-45 minutes. They have to be tender but firm. Unwrap and let cool.
Cut each potato in half and empty with the help of a spoon or a punch, taking care not to overdo it and not break the skin. It is better to leave about 5 millimeters thick potato. Save the meat for another recipe.
Fill each potato with Bolognese sauce or tomato sauce, cover with cheese and add the decorations to taste. It is very easy to cut with monstrous faces a pepper or use olives for eyes and spiders. Gratin in the oven until the cheese is melted.
With what to accompany the monstrous potatoes
The monstrous stuffed potatoes can be shared at dinner, served as a first course or as part of a Halloween menu with other dishes to go pecking. Depending on how generous we are with the filling and sizes, they will be more or less satiating.
