7 Spooky Recipes: The Ultimate Halloween Dinner Spread


By Cooking Panda

The most wonderful day of the year is HERE!

Whether you are going trick-or-treating, partying, or just staying home because (sadly) nobody likes when Oct. 31 falls on a weeknight, we’re here to make sure that Fright Night is extra spooky for you. With minimal effort, you can whip up a savory spread that is delicious and eye-catching in equal measure. (Check here for cute Halloween desserts.)

Here are some of our favorite spooky dinner ideas:

1. Halloween Spaghetti

The key to these scary black noodles? Food paste colorant, which you can find in the baking aisle at craft stores and Wal-Mart. Genius!

2. Jack-O’-Lantern Stuffed Peppers

Feel free to adapt your favorite stuffed pepper recipe to this super easy and festive cutout. We like this one.

3. Guacamoldy Eyeballs

If you’ve never mixed avocado with your devilled eggs, you must! We understand that avocados are a little pricey at the moment, so you can totally just make this recipe with regular devilled eggs if you need to. Add a drop or two of blue or green food coloring if you want to replicate the moldy look.

4. Ghost Pizza Bagels

If you are not into bagels, you can swap them out for pita, actual pizza, toast — whatever you prefer. They will still be both spooky and delicious.

5. Eyeball Pasta

Who can resist these adorable cheese and olive eyeballs atop a bed of scary green spinach noodles and your favorite red pasta sauce?

6. Black Bean and Pumpkin Soup

Not only is the rich, smoky soup hearty and packed with flavor, but the gorgeous sour cream spider web topping is really easy to make! If you don’t have a condiment squeeze bottle, just use a sandwich bag with the corner snipped off. Practice a couple times on a small plate if you need to warm up!

7. Severed Toes in Bandages

These are obviously way cooler than pigs in a blanket, and they’re really easy to make too. Enjoy!
