Really Gross Halloween Recipes & Videos

gross-halloween-recipes-by-JAGwired.jpg Following are step-by-step instructions for making some of the most gruesome looking Halloween foods that I’ve ever seen.

(And I’ve seen a lot of scary Halloween foods!)

The best part…

As gross as these foods look, they’re all 100% edible!


Gross Halloween Recipes

First, here are a few of my favorite gross Halloween recipes to try:

  • Brain Drain - combine sour apple martini mix with one part vodka. Add a fake plastic brain for the gruesome effect.
    Here’s the Brain Drain recipe.
  • Meat Feet or Meat Hand - meatloaf shaped like a large monster foot with odd-shaped nuts for the toenails and ketchup for blood. be sure to add a knife (or cleaver!) half-way sticking into the “foot” for added effect. It’s truly disgusting looking!
    Here’s the Meat Feet recipe and the Meat Hand recipe.
  • Bugs In A Blanket – breadstick dough, mini sausages, shoestring potatoes, and ketchup.
    Here’s the Bugs In A Blanket recipe.
  • Meat Head On A Platter – use ham and cream cheese (or prosciutto and mozzarella cheese) to mold it into the shape of a skull. Then add cranberry juice for that coagulated gel-like look.
    Here are some great recipes: Meat Head on a Platter #1, Meat Head on a Platter #2Meat Head on A Platter #3, and Meat Head on a Platter #4.

Next up are some Halloween recipes that aren’t quite as gross, but they’re still a bit creepy (…and FUN!) nonetheless.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money -- so I frequently write about "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed several years until switching gears to pursue things I was more passionate about. I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo -- to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.

    These recipes really came out great! They will add such a great flair to my Halloween party. It is so much fun to try out new creepy or gross Halloween recipes at this time of year. The kids just love them. I have found even more recipes that add the perfect touch of deliciousness with the right look for Halloween at Better Recipes. Though I do work for them, I use them myself because they honestly have a ton of really tasty ideas. They are really worth checking out.
