If you are looking for some Halloween party recipes and ideas, we’ve got a few for you. Halloween is not just for kids. Adults have some pretty serious themed parties too.
I have a friend who uses her ghost and pumpkin shaped cookie cutters, on flour tortillas. Once the shapes are cut, she deep fries them to make her own goblin chips.
Seems like almost all food and beverages brands get in on the seasonal fun. Social media is teaming with great ideas to take your spread over the top. The folks at V8 and Campbells sent me some recipes this week that caught my eye.
Check out these cool Skull French Dip sandwiches
- 1 can Campbell’s® Condensed French Onion Soup
- 1 cup water
- 6 oz. thinly sliced deli style roast beef
- 1 package (16 oz.) refrigerated biscuit dough (jumbo-sized, 8 biscuits)
- 2 oz. sliced swiss cheese
Start by heating the oven to 375°F. Heat soup and water in medium saucepan to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and add the beef. Cook 2 minutes or until beef is hot. Remove beef from soup and cool slightly; keep soup warm.
Meanwhile, pat or roll the biscuit dough into 8 (5 ½ by 4”) ovals. Arrange 4 biscuit ovals on parchment- lined baking sheet. Divide the cheese evenly among the 4 biscuits, cutting to fit, leaving a 1/2 “border. Divide the beef evenly among the biscuits.
Place remaining biscuit ovals on top of beef. Press to seal edges. Using hands, push bottom of oval inward to form a “skull” shape. Using a sharp knife or scissors, cut eyes, nose, and mouth. (Brush with egg wash if desired).
Finally, bake 15 minutes or until golden-brown. Serve with the reserved soup mixture for dipping.
Until recently, when I hear about V8, I immediately thought about tomato juice, and well Bloody Marys which are perfect for a Halloween brunch. I had no idea they have a long lineup of flavored juices including some canned concoctions with bubbles. Now you have my attention.
