Spooky Stuffed Peppers
6 bell peppers, any color
1 pound ground beef
4 slices whole wheat bread, cubed
1 small onion, chopped
1 small tomato, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup prepared yellow mustard
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish.
- Lightly mix together the ground beef, egg, bread cubes, onion, tomato, garlic, chili sauce, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
- Wash the peppers, and cut jack-o'-lantern faces into the peppers with a sharp paring knife, making triangle eyes and noses, and pointy-teeth smiles. Slice off the tops of the peppers, and scoop out the seeds and cores. Stuff the peppers lightly with the beef stuffing, and place them into the prepared baking dish so they lean against each other.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the peppers are tender and the stuffing is cooked through and juicy, about 1 hour.
Vampires: Cellophane, twist ties, and googly eyes
Ghosts: tissue paper, crepe paper, cloth, or actual Kleenex tissues and ribbon
Other ideas: Orange paper to make Jack O' Lantern pops, green paper to make witch pops or Frankenstein's monster, and black paper to make cat or bat pops. Add embellishments like ribbon, ears, eyes, and even hats, capes, and outfits.
Just fill a clear glove with popcorn and redhots to make this creepy hand!
You can manipulate the dough for this festive shape and then use toppings to create a fun face!
These are a fun twist on pigs in a blanket. You just wrap the hot dogs in strips of crescent rolls, bake, and enjoy! I would suggest sticking diced red onions (or some other topping you enjoy) on them with a dab of mustard for eyes.
