Favorite Halloween Dinners

Bringing the family together for a special dinner is my favorite part about the holidays. With our busy lives, it’s fun to take the time to reconnect, tell stories, and just spend some quality time together. Halloween is no different. Even though most of us just plan for Halloween parties and trick or treating, it’s a great idea to have a spooky, Halloween-themed dinner for the whole family. There are some really fun recipes out there that are kid-friendly, easy to make, and convey the spirit of the season. If you are considering having a Halloween feast, or attending a potluck, here are some of my favorite dishes to make:

Jack-O-Lantern Quesadillas

Jack-O-Lantern Quesadillas

If you’re busy like me, any recipe that is easy, quick, and delicious will jump to the front of the line. These jack-o-lantern quesadillas are probably the simplest recipe you can make for a fun Halloween dinner. Simply make a quesadilla with your favorite ingredients, then cut a jack-o-lantern face into the tortilla. You’ll have Halloween dinner ready in minutes.

Chicken Boo-Dle Soup

Chicken Boo-Dle Soup

Chicken boo-dle soup is the perfect dish to keep your family warm on a chilly Fall night. Made like any traditional chicken noodle soup, just with a little extra prep time to make it spooky.

You’ll cut the carrots to look like pumpkins when you slice them and die farfalle noodles black to look like bats. Then just put it all together the way you’d normally make chicken noodle soup and you’ll have a delightful, but delicious Halloween dinner entree.

Spaghetti And Oozing Eyeballs

I love making spaghetti for my family, it’s a quick and easy dinner that always satisfies. Spaghetti and oozing eyeballs give this time-tested dish a spooky spin by turning your meatballs into creepy monster eyes with string cheese and black olives. Make your favorite spaghetti recipe and surprise your kids with a dish that stares back at them.

Halloween Pizza

Halloween Pizza

My favorite thing about making Halloween pizzas is that the whole family can get involved in the decorating process. You start by making small single serving pizzas and then using cheese, olives, and any of your other favorite toppings to make creepy designs. You can make monsters, werewolves, witches, mummies, spiders, and more. You’re only limited by your ghoulish imagination.

Spooky Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Spooky Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Served as either a main dish or a side, spooky loaded mashed potatoes. You simply pile layers of your favorite baked potato toppings in a casserole dish and bake it.

Then comes the fun part. With sour cream, you draw a spooky spider web on the top! Then simply place a creepy spider and voila, a delicious but scary Halloween dish.

Monster Feet Meatloaf

Meatloaf is a family dinner mainstay, but for Halloween meatloaf is transformed into something otherworldly.

Taking your favorite meatloaf then shaping it into huge ugly monster feet, then make hideous toenails out of pieces of onion and use ketchup and onions to make bloody stumps at the ankle.

This year I’m serving monster feet with spooky loaded mashed potatoes, I can’t wait to see how the elves react!

Mummy Calzones

Mummy Calzones

These calzones are a little more work than some of my other favorite Halloween recipes, don’t worry they are still easy to make.

You start by preparing your favorite calzone filling, then instead of simply wrapping the dough around, you cut the edges into strips.

Once cut, you’ll fold the strips one at a time in a cross hatch pattern. Then at the top, leave a little space for olive eyes and your family will delight over the scary mummies on their plate.

Spooky Eyeball Tacos

Spooky Eyeball Tacos

Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year and you know what that means?

It’s Halloween Taco Tuesday! Take all of your favorite taco night toppings and layer them in a hard shell taco Then in the center take black olives and fill them with just a little sour cream and there you have it, a taco monster.

You can also serve these with the jack-o-lantern quesadillas for a Mexican-themed Halloween feast.

Toxic Waste Mac And Cheese

Toxic Waste Mac And Cheese

Toxic waste mac and cheese is disgusting, but healthy Halloween spin on mac and cheese.

You simply add shredded spinach (and a little food coloring if you wish) to the homemade cheese sauce, then stir in cooked pasta.

If you want to make it extra special serve it in little black cauldrons you can pick up at any Halloween store. It’s delicious, nutritious, and superstitious.

These recipes will be sure to please your family this Halloween. Once Halloween dinner is served, you can get a jump on your next big holidays. I’ll be back with some great Thanksgiving recipes soon, but I want you to also start thinking about Christmas since it always sneaks up on us. One easy thing you can do that will make the holiday special is to set up a free personalized phone call from Santa Claus. My husband loves calling all the little children around the globe during the holidays. So once you are done planning Halloween dinner, start thinking about your Christmas plans. Staying ahead of the game will give you more time to spend with your family this holiday season!
