Indeed, Halloween is coming soon!

For October 31st, we have selected 5 recipes of snacks, appetizers and desserts to eat with your family or with your friends; they are easy to make in your mobile-home at the Domaine les Oréades.

So, here it is your task for this year:
Be original, but overall, be scaring!

First here it is an American recipe called Edible Eyeballs:

  • Slice some raw carrots thick
  • Pour a teaspoon of fromage frais on each piece (Philadelphia Cream Cheese or St-Moret)
  • Cut black olives in half and put each half on each carrot

And there you have it!

The second recipe is called Carrot-Finger Food:

  • Prepare a dressing to dip the raw vegetables (fromage blanc and chive or Tzatziki)
  • slice the end of the carrots thin
  • pour a little of dressing or fromage frais on the flat end of each carrot
  • put a flaked almond on each end
  • put the carrots in the dressing so they look like the 5 fingers of the hand.

Mhhh, terrifying… enjoy the dish!

We love the salted bones which go well with the carrot-finger food:

  • preheat your oven to 180°C
  • cut the shortcrust pastry into thin slices (6-7 cm long and 1.5 -2 cm wide) with a knife, cut a slice more at each end of about 1 cm.
  • fold the 4 small pieces to form balls to make the extremities of the bones.
  • Put the bones on baking paper (without any grease) and put them some centimetres apart.
  • Sprinkle with coarse salt
  • Bake the bones until browned, during about 12 minutes.

(some advice: after baking the bones, you can add some ketchup if you want to make them bloodier……!)

And for the meal, we want something awfully delicious, the mummy pizza:

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C
  • Cut the muffins in half (you can find them in the white bread section)
  • Spread the tomato sauce for pizza on each half
  • Put slices of black olives to make the eyes
  • Add some part of green onion or some tiny pieces of gherkin inside the olives for the pupils.
  • Slice some cheese (Emmental or conté) thin and put it as the bandages of the mummy.
  • Bake them during 10 minutes or until the cheese has melt and the muffin is toasted.

Enjoy your meal!

The last recipe is sweet with fruit and awfully delicious, the ghost bananas and the pumpkin clementines:

  • Peel the bananas, clementines and the celery sticks.
  • Cut the bananas in half and put the chocolate chips to make the eyes and the mouth into them.
  • Put a celery stick in the middle of the clementine to make the stalk of the pumpkin.

(Some advice: if you do not eat the bananas immediately, sprinkle them with some orange juice so that they won’t darken.)

Now you have got everything you need to make a good meal so we are counting on you.
Enjoy your meal and have a good Halloween!
