4 gory-licious Halloween party dinner recipes

Halloween is the only acceptable time of year to host a dinner party and make your dishes look as scary as possible. But on the flipside, hosting a dinner party means you’ll have to feed a lot of hungry guests.

To make things easier for you, here are 4 Halloween party dinner recipes that burst with flavour to compensate for the fright you’ll give your guests. 

While you may think that Halloween-themed dishes don’t work unless they are complex, we are here to tell you that you don’t have to follow complicated recipes.

If you follow these 4 simple and delicious Halloween party dinner recipes, you’re bound to send chills—the good kind—down the spines of your guests.

           1. Anti-vampire butternut squash and garlic soup

Cook onions and garlic in butter until tender for about 3 to 4 minutes. Then add in cinnamon and nutmeg and cook for another 2 minutes.

Stir in your squash and vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes until the squash is tender.

Use an immersion blender or a food processor and blend it in batches until smooth. Return this to the pot, add cooking cream and season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately with bacon bits and crumbled cheese.

          2. Spaghetti with eyeballs

Cook the spaghetti, meatballs, and canned spaghetti sauce as instructed on the packaging, and combine the spaghetti and sauce. Twirl the spaghetti in a ladle using a fork to form ‘nests’ and place it in a serving dish.

Once the meatballs are cooled, cut out circles of mozzarella and place one circle on each meatball. Place a slice of black olive on the cheese.

Gently place the meatballs over the spaghetti at random to mimic eyeballs in the spaghetti.

          3. Graveyard chicken enchiladas

In a bowl, combine pepper jack cheese, enchilada sauce, rotisserie chicken, cream cheese, green chillies, and taco seasoning.

Transfer the dip to an iron skillet and bake at 176℃ until bubbly for about 20 to 25 minutes. While this bakes, you can go ahead and make the tortilla gravestones by cutting tortillas into the shape of gravestones. Proceed to bake them for 5 to 7 minutes.

Once the dip is out of the oven, top it with the shredded lettuce and the tortilla gravestones. Serve with a side of tortilla chips.

          4. Jack-o’-lantern quesadillas

In a large bowl, add chicken and toss with lime juice, garlic powder, and chilli powder.

Assemble the tortillas by cutting a jack-o’-lantern pattern into 4 flour tortillas. Sprinkle the chicken mixture onto 4 uncut tortillas and top it with the Jack-o’-lantern tortillas.

Place the quesadillas on a baking tray, brush with oil, and bake at 218℃ till the tortillas are golden brown and the cheese has melted. Serve your quesadillas with hot sauce.
