6-medum baking taters, washed & dried
¼-cup veggie oil
Taste to taste
2-cups packed fresh spinach leaves
2-tsp dried basil
½-tsp dried oregano
½-cup grated parmesan cheese
¼-cup sour cream
1-pack dry Italian dressing mix

· Preheat oven to 400°.
· Cut eyes, mouth and nose out of the taters, just like carving a punkin.
· Place on a baking sheet and drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt.
· Bake for 45 mins or until tender and you start to see browning around the carved out places.
· Place all dipping sauce ingredients into a food processor and pulse until combined, if you want it thinner add more sour cream or half & half.
Tip: You can also serve the taters with crispy bacon and shredded cheese.
