Squashed Sunshine Potatoes

Get your kids to smash these veggies, and they’ll want to eat them too!

Give each child a heavy weight ziplock bag, quart size.  Distribute into each bag:

  • 2 medium-sized boiled potatoes in skins, still hot
  • 1 4 x 6″ piece of cooked squash, peel removed
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup dairy:  sour cream, cream cheese, yogurt or cream (in any combination)

To season, add to bag:

  • 1-2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of any seasoning mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley

Zip the bag tightly shut, and now the fun begins!  Smash and squash and squish the hot bag with your hands to mix the ingredients.  When all the colors are blended, and everything is mixed thoroughly, open a small section of the ziplock and squeeze the contents onto your plate.  Bag makes enough for a child to share some with a parent too.
