If you have decided to spend Halloween at home, you might want to plan a fun and special dinner for the family. You can have a delicious and filling dinner that also has a Halloween theme. Here are some different ideas to consider.
Dinner Salad with Pumpkin Carrot Slices
There is a technique for cutting a carrot into small pumpkin-shaped slices, which is perfect for topping your dinner salad.
- You want to take the carrot and wash it as you normally would and shave it if you prefer.
- You will then cut into the top of the carrot on two sides of where the stem will be, moving down the carrot longwise, but not going down too far. Remember this is going to become the stem.
- Once that area is done, you cut the carrot into slices, and you have yourself pumpkin-shaped carrot pieces.
Eyeball Pasta Halloween Dinner
If you want to have pasta for dinner, it ‘s easy to make it Halloween-themed by making some food eyeballs.
To make the eyeballs:
- Take a couple of hardboiled eggs and remove the yolk.
- Now slice up the white parts of the egg into round circles.
- Cut up some black olives into round circles as well, but a little smaller than the white circles.
- Cut a slit into the white pieces so you can fit the black olives in there, and you have yourself some eyeballs to top your pasta.
Halloween Pumpkin Cheeseburgers
For cheeseburgers, it’s very simple to turn this dish into a Halloween meal.
- Make your hamburger like normal.
- However, the cheese slices will be made into Jack-O-Lanterns. You can do this by cutting the face into your cheese slices freehand or using a cookie cutter.
- Put the cheese slices on the burgers and leave them open-faced when serving them to your kids for dinner.
Mummy Hot Dogs
Mummy hot dogs can be a lot of fun for dinner, as well as for parties on Halloween.
- Take hot dogs and cut them in half.
- Now wrap a crescent roll around each hot dog piece, then bake them until the crescent rolls are cooked through.
It creates a fun little mummy dinner. You can serve this with your pumpkin salad or eyeball pasta for a full, well-balanced meal that is healthy and fun to enjoy on Halloween night.
Don’t forget dinner doesn’t have to be ‘Halloween Themed’. Other options include a nice pot of chili or some pumpkin or butternut squash soup.
