The Cutest Halloween Ideas!

I came across this website and she has the coolest Halloween meal ideas ever! I had to share them with you!

Mini Pizza Mummies

• English Muffins Halves

• Mozzarella Cheese Slices Cut into strips

• Pizza Sauce

• Pepperoni or other pizza topping

• Sliced black olives


Add sauce and topping to muffin, olives for eyes and lay strips of cheese over the top to create your mummy. Let the kids build their own for some fun family cooking! Bake for about 10 minutes at 350°.

Apple Bites

Aren’t these hilarious? Just cut your apple and add some almond slivers for teeth!

Sausage Potato Soup

• 5-6 medium sized potatoes, cut into 1″ cubes

• 1 lb. bulk pork sausage

• 1 medium onion, chopped

• 1 cup light cream

• 1/4 cup butter

• 6 cups chicken stock

• 1 1/2 Tbsp. vanilla extract

• 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

• freshly ground black pepper


Bring chicken stock to a boil in a large pan. Add potatoes and onions. Cook until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, brown sausage in a separate pan. Add the cooked sausage to the potatoes and stock. Add the cream and butter. Stir until butter is melted. Add the vanilla and balsamic vinegar right before serving.

This recipe is so good! You’ll be munching on it for a few days:-)

Eat with Creepy Lady Fingers below

Recipe by: Cafe Johnsonia

Creepy Lady Fingers

Use Pillsbury bread stick dough. Cut them in half, roll into finger shapes. Add almonds for the fingernails. (I painted mine with red food coloring). Use a knife to make knuckle markings and bake.

Mummy Hot Dogs

• Pillsbury dough or crescent rolls

• hot dogs

• mustard or ketchup for eyes

Cut the dough into strips and wrap the hot dogs into mummies. Bake for 15 minutes at 400° Add mustard or ketchup dots for eyes. You could cut the hot dogs in half for mini mummies.

Mummy Meat Loaf

• 1 pound ground meat

• 1/2 package of breakfast sausage

• 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

• 1 large egg

• BBQ sauce or Ketchup (I like BBQ sauce best)

• 6-8 lasagna noodles, cooked

• 2 slices of cheese

• 2 black or green olives for eyes


1. Preheat oven to 350°

2. Combine meat, sausage, breadcrumbs and egg in a bowl.

3. Coat a round glass bowl with cooking spray. This will go in the oven, so make sure it is oven safe.

4. Shape mixture inside the bowl.

5. Bake for 45-55 minutes until done.

6. While it’s baking cook some lasagna noodles for the mummy wrap. (slice off the curly edges after they are cooked.)

7. Cover meatloaf with BBQ sauce or Ketchup.

8. Add cheese and olives for eyes, then wrap with lasagna.

I found this adorable idea and photo on FamilyCorner.com. I might make a few mini mummies to try something different. My kids will have a blast wrapping the mummy up… I doubt they will eat it, but at least it will be fun!

Ghost Grilled Cheese Sandwiches/Bloody Vampire Sandwiches

We have ghost cookie cutters and will cut ghosts out for some spooky fun!

Try this sandwich for something different if plain grilled cheese is too boring. You could call it “Bloody Vampire Sandwiches”.

• Provolone Cheese

• Grilled Chicken

• Pasta Sauce
