Halloween Finger Foods
There’s no better time than All Hallow’s Eve to have a little fun with your food. Whether you’re entertaining while handing out candy to the neighborhood boys and ghouls or hosting an adults-only haunted cocktail party, everyone loves a festive snack. Check out our spooky selection of easy, oven-ready appetizers that should hold the hungry zombies at bay for the evening.
Filet Mignon Pastry Bites From the depths of the Amazon jungle, may we present these creepy shrunken heads… complete with tender steak brains! Each buttery pastry bakes to a golden brown and is filled with Omaha Steaks Filet Mignon pieces and savory mushrooms. These two-bite treats are always a crowd pleaser, especially with a backstory.
New England Clam Chowder Fill a big bowl – or, better yet, a cast iron cauldron – up with this satisfying soup and start coming up with a list of witchy ingredients. We left out the Eye of Newt, but we put in plenty of New England Sea Clams, potatoes, onions and real cream. It’s hearty, it’s hot, and it’s a perfect way to warm up on a creepy Halloween night.
Freaky Fried Fingers
Coconut Shrimp Creepy… weird… and delicious! Arrange our super-popular Coconut Shrimp like a monster’s hand and invite your guests to feast on his phalanges! Each succulent shrimp has been butterflied with the tail on and fried to crispy perfection in a sweet, crunchy coconut breading. Just pop them in the oven and serve with blood (or cocktail sauce).
All-Beef Meatballs Meatballs are monstrously popular at parties, and our new all-beef meatballs are our best ever. Lightly seasoned and easy to cook to perfection in the oven, each perfectly formed meatball is ready to be skewered (preferably by a spooky sword or other themed toothpick). For extra gore, spread a layer of your favorite marinara sauce on a platter and arrange the meatballs on top. Top each one with a round slice from a mozzarella ball to complete the eye. Bwa ha ha ha!
Bat Out Of Hell Wings
Bull Wings “I’ve never seen hot wings like these,” says your Halloween party guest. “Oh, these?” you reply, coyly. “They’re bat wings. These fanged little devils flew out of a haunted cave, but I shot them with my crossbow. The spiciness is because they flew straight out of hell.” They’ll never guess that they’re actually bite-sized pieces of Omaha Steaks Top Sirloin seasoned with a buffalo-style marinade and dashed with a hint of bleu cheese. A real conversation starter!
