Why not get creative this Halloween by making these quick and tasty recipes... perfect for making with your little ones.
Eye spy with my little eye, something beginning with.... P! If you are looking for a quick and simple Halloween tea, look no further. This easy pizza eye can help keep your little one's entertained and be the perfect party tea.
Here's what we used, however, you can always replace these with your favourite ingredients.
3 tbsp tomato puree
50g cheddar cheese
3 rashers of bacon (cooked to preference)
5 black olives (chopped)
Spread the pizza base with tomato puree before sprinkling with cheese
Chop the olives and place in a small circle in the middle of the pizza base
Chop the bacon and arrange these in a circle around the olives
Bake on 180C for 12-15minutes
Squeeze ketchup around the edge of the pizza (as shown in photo) to create a bloodshot appearance
This is a simple but exciting way of getting into the Halloween spirit, as well as getting vegetables into your children.
Have fun and make tea together by creating your own creepy characters!
Ingredients (Serves 6)
6 peppers (any colour preferred)
50g ham (chopped)
2 tbsp parmesan
30g spinach (chopped)
50g cheddar cheese (grated)
75g butter (softened)
1 tsp chilli (mild – hot depending on preference)
1 tsp mixed herbs
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut the tops of the peppers to make a little hat and deseed the centre. Cut any shape/face you like on the front. However, make sure it’s not too open as the filling may seep out during cooking (possibly carve after baking if preffered)
Mix the flour, ham, parmesan, spinach, cheese and seasoning together in a bowl
Add the butter to the mix and beat with a fork until combined before adding the eggs and combining further to make a stiff mixture (if it needs loosening add a splash of milk)
Fill the peppers with mixture and bake alongside the hats for 20-25 minutes (they may not stand up so just place on their sides)
Once removed from the oven, slice the bottom slightly to allow the pepper to stand up and place the hat back on.
Perfect finger food for your Halloween party or served up for a tasty tea, simple but effective!
