Witch Hats for #SundaySupper #Halloween Style

Yum
I love Halloween.  All the ghoulishly good food is so interesting!  The cupcakes, dips, mummy dogs, Oreo ghosts.  The ideas just keep coming.  And then there's all the pumpkin recipes.  Man, those are just like the Energizer bunny.  Please, don't make me say it...

Just keeps going and going.  *snort*


These little nibbles came about many years ago.  I was going to a dinner club and then a Halloween party. Oy.  Talk about a bag lady!  I was making a quinoa salad for our Latin America themed night for the dinner party.  Yup.  This was 2001?  I think?  I was eating quinoa back then BEFORE it became a popular super food.  It had onions, tomatoes, olives, a lemon vinaigrette.  It was DELISH!  There were no left overs.





Then I went to a Halloween party.  It was a party with kids and was told it would be more kid friendly food than anything.  I think it was the ONLY food, unless you counted alcohol as a food group.  Which I didn't.  There was hot dogs, mac n cheese with a bell pepper octopus, bean dip and chips, potato chips, cake, and cookies.  Yeah.  Dinner party.  *snort*

Anyway, I searched and found a picture of these beauties and just decided to whip them up; my way, of course.  At that time I was doing the whole low fat healthy eating type thing.  So, it was reduced fat crescent rolls and turkey pepperoni.  Actually, that's how I made them this time, too.


I don't know about you, but I like turkey pepperoni better than regular from the pouch.  It's spicier, I think.  I like my pepperoni spicy!!  And it just so happens that there will the centers left over after making your crescent moons.



.  

So, it's a recipe with insta-nibbles while you're cooking.  That's always a good thing, right?  I've played with the idea of putting a sliver of string cheese in the brim of the hat before I roll it up.  This was not the time.  Now that I look at it, you could totally make a whole pizza like this.  Maybe with some black moon olives?  Mushroom trees?  You could do a total pizza landscape!!  Oh.  Now I know what I'm doing next year.


These are so simple and quick to throw together.  S and I got home form running errands Saturday.  He didn't want a lunch, but I was hungry.  What else is new.  I threw these tasty gems together in about 30 minutes.  One pan was a nice snack to tide us over until dinner.  You could play with names for dipping sauce.  Marinara can be vampire blood.  Ranch dressing?  Ghost snot?  Nacho cheese sauce....is....um...goblin drool?  Ew.




Of course, they're crescent rolls, so they don't really need a dipping sauce.  They're all buttery, crispy goodness with cheese and pepperoni on top.

Enjoy!




Witch Hats

Recipe by A Kitchen Hoor (@flowerfroggirl)






Ingredients

  • 8 ounces refrigerator crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 8 slices turkey pepperoni (Hormel)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Unroll the crescent rolls and cut each in half creating triangles. Some will be uneven, but witch hats aren't all the same.
  3. Cut each slice of pepperoni into two crescent moon shapes.
  4. Roll the bottom of the triangle up to form the brim of the hat.
  5. Sprinkle each hat with Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper. Top with a crescent moon pepperoni piece.
  6. Place on a baking sheet covered in aluminum foil coated with cooking spray.
  7. Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Serve with vampire blood (a.k.a. marinara) or ghost snot (a.k.a. Ranch dressing).
