Halloween Food Ideas: Mummy Meatballs

It’s that time of year where kids are getting excited about Halloween, bonfire night and all things spooky. So, to get in the mood with them I decided to make a little Halloween recipe, their favourite dinner with a fun Halloween twist. LP and Little Man absolutely love meatballs and tagliatelle and so it was super easy to make this favourite meal Halloween themed – turning it into Mummy Meatballs!

Halloween Food Ideas: Mummy Meatballs

Here’s the Mummy Meatballs recipe if you’d like to make it for yourself.

Ingredients:

Recipe

  • Cook meatballs as per packet instructions and leave to cool slightly.
  • Cook tagliatelle as per packet instructions and leave to cool slightly.
  • Wrap each meatball in tagliatelle – it takes about two strips of tagliatelle per meatball.
  • Cook the meatball sauce on the hob and then place the meatballs on a bed of meatball sauce.
  • Finish by placing edible eyes on each meatball.

The children love these Mummy Meatballs as, by the time they get them, they are the perfect temperature to eat – and are warmed up nicely by the meatball sauce too. You can use both meat or vegetarian meatballs and it’s a really simple but fun dinner that compliments Halloween perfectly. I’m looking forward to creating more Halloween food ideas as the season progresses. What are your favourite recipes for Halloween?
