Ghoulish Halloween Pot Luck Ideas?
I am looking for something that sounds gross, but is actually extremely tasty for my company's pot luck luncheon this Halloween. Last year, I made California rolls and called them "eyeballs"...the pickled ginger was "witch's skin" and the wasabi was "bat guts". Everyone loved it & I had nothing left over. I want to have the same effect this year, but am at a loss of what to make. Any great ideas that nobody else will have thought of?
Restrictions: It has to be easy to make ahead & transport. I have access to a microwave, toaster oven & refrigerator at the office...and can bring in a crock pot if necessary.
Cute. Few ideas:
"Dead Meat" -- chocolate pudding with gummy worms. Or a mixture of chocolate, strawberry and pistachio pudding with gummy worms to get the full necrotic effect".
"Vampire stew" -- Borcht (but people would need to be careful not to spill and stain their office whites).
"Rotten eggs" - Devilled eggs made with wasabe mayonaise -- and possible black fish-eggs for maggoty garnish if you feel ambitious.
"Poison Apples" -- mini-caramel apples -- cored for easier eating.
"Ladies fingers" -- cookies really shaped like cut off ladies fingers with jelly beans cut in half to look like fingernails.
re: bite bite
I LOVE these ideas! This is in line with what I was looking for. I was hoping to stick to a hot dish if possible. If I can't come up with something hot, then I think I'll do the apples. I like bite-size things for pot lucks.
One of my co-workers last year stuffed a shirt & jeans and placed a bowl of li'l smokie sausages in BBQ sauce in the middle to look like the guy's guts. It went over really well. I don't do repeats, but if someone else needs an easy ghoulish recipe idea, they can use that one.
"Ghoulish Goulash" don't have a recipe butit was the first thing I thought of when I saw the post. plus I think it would be a good crockpot recipe.
