Don't worry, it's all perfectly edible. This creepy delight actually consists of a potato and pumpkin mash, which ditches the butter for a lower fat alternative. And the "fingers" are just chipolata sausages - complete with mustard "fingernails".
- 300g white potatoes
- 300g sweet potatoes
- 300g pumpkin flesh
- 100g Lake District Dairy Co. Original Quark
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 3 tablespoons snipped fresh chives (optional)
- 3 chipolata sausages per person
Method1 Preheat the oven to 190ºC / Fan 170ºC / Gas Mark 5.
2 Peel all the potatoes, cut into even sized chunks and place in a large pan. Add just enough cold water to cover and a pinch of salt, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins.
3 In the meantime, place the sausages on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 20 mins, turning halfway so they are brown on all sides.
4 Add the pumpkin flesh to the pan, cover, return to the boil and cook for a further 5 mins until all vegetables are tender. Drain well in a colander.
5 Return the vegetables to the pan, add the quark and use a potato masher to create a smooth mash. Season to taste and add the chives if using.
6 Use a fork to fluff up the potatoes. Make a witch’s hand by sticking the sausages into the mash to look like fingers, placing a dab of mustard on the end of each sausage to look like fingernails.
