  • Mac O'Lantern (from my favorite recipe site,


    1 (8 ounce) can pizza sauce, divided
    * (7 1/4 ounce) package macaroni and cheese mix
    * 1 lb 93% lean ground beef, cooked, drained, and divided
    * 1 egg, lightly beaten
    * 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
    * 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    * 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Remove and set aside 1/4 cup pizza sauce. Combine prepared macaroni, half the ground beef, remaining pizza sauce, garlic powder, egg, and basil. Spoon evenly into a 9 inch pie plate. Sprinkle with cheese. Combine remaining meat with the reserved pizza sauce. Use to create a jack-o'-lantern face on top of the casserole. Bake 15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

  • Spooky Eyeball Eggs

    * 12 hard boiled eggs
    * 1 jar green pimento stuffed olives
    * red food coloring

    Make your favorite deviled eggs recipe with the hard boiled eggs. Slice the olives in half short ways. Place one slice on each deviled egg yolk. Using a toothpick dipped in red food coloring, draw squiggles from the olive to the outer portion of the egg yolk filling.

  • Mummy Dogs

    1 pkg. hot dogs
    1 pkg. breadstick dough (or make your own)
    Separate breadstick dough and roll into long 1/4 " thin sticks. Wrap each hotdog with a "stick" of dough, leaving an opening near one end of the hot dog. Bake according to package directions. When done, dot mustard in the opening for eyes. Serve with choice of condiments.

  • I didn't know about all of this stuff when I did my husbands b-day (his is Halloween day), I used Halloween cookies cutters and made peek a boo burgers and buns cut into the shape of ghost. Although I like the hot dog and spaghetti ideas as well.
