Halloween Dinner Ideas to Spook Your Guests 

It’s getting kinda spooky around here! Now that all the Halloween decorations are up and the goody bags are packed full of freaky treats for trick-or-treaters, it’s time to start thinking about some Halloween dinner ideas to spook your family and friends.

What are you going to serve? Do you usually make a creepy Halloween dinner or do you stick with a traditional meal?

Why Make Spooky a Halloween Dinner

Because it’s so much fun to watch your guests creep out when you serve them intestines and eyeballs, of course!

Back when the girls were little (and still into Halloween), I would always make some creepy meal to make them giggle and laugh. We’ve had Jack O’ Lantern burgers, eyeballs in witches hair (Spaghetti and Meatballs) and even severed fingers (Hot Dogs).

This year, my oldest daughter won’t be able to come home from college for Halloween and my youngest is going to a friend’s house to watch horror movies. So, unfortunately, we won’t be having a spooky meal.

Unless maybe, I decide to freak out the husband. Mmmmwaaaahahahahaa…
