Snackin' Pumpkin Seeds
Every Halloween carved pumpkins appear. Now that you know what to do with the seeds, you can cut down on food waste! Pumpkin seeds are such a great Halloween party food idea for an easy get together or casual fall hangout. This recipe for pumpkin seeds is basic, so start here then flavor to fit your tastes. The seeds will keep in an airtight container for several days, so make a large batch. You can add them to fall-themed snack mixes, stir them into soups, or simply snack on them by the handful.
Halloween is dominated by sweets so go the savory route and make these Monster Eyes with simple sausage ball ingredients and green olives with pimentos.
Pork Dumplings with Chile-Sesame SauceThese wrinkly dumplings are filled with pork, shiitake mushrooms, bok choy, scallions and ginger. For Halloween, David Burtka soaks the brain-like dumplings in the dipping sauce, then serves them in science-lab beakers.
Sweet and Savory Tortilla Bats
Making a spooky snack for your Halloween table is as easy as cutting tortillas with a bat-shaped cookie cutter (R&M Flying Bat; amazon.com). We seasoned one panful with cinnamon and sugar and the other with chile salt, but you can go for all sweet or all savory if you prefer. These Halloween snacks can be served as appetizers alongside salsa for a savory bite or Greek yogurt swirled with honey for something sweet that goes beyond candy.
