Fuelling up before trick or treating is a must, but where’s the fun in sitting down to a ho-hum dinner? Instead, serve up a ghoulishly good Halloween dinner that the kids will love.

Depending on how much scare you dare to dish up at dinner, there’s a meal to suit every little trick or treater. Give a frightening twist to a regular favourite or introduce a completely new devilish dinner to the menu. Either way, these Halloween dinner ideas are sure to set the scene for a freakishly fun All Hallow’s Eve.

Quinoa & Beef Stuffed Halloween Capsicums


Spooktacularly simple and packed full of goodies to balance out those Halloween treats, these guys actually freeze really well.

Jack O’ Lantern Burgers

Jock O' Lantern Burgers

Give burger night a Halloween feel with some simple knife skills. Just trim each slice of cheese to look like a carved pumpkin before placing on top of the burgers.

Creepy Pasta Pie

Creepy Pasta Pie

A regular pasta dish turns dastardly with some strategically placed mozzarella and olives. And we love the idea of turning pasta into a pie – genius!

Halloween Turkey Mummies

Perfect for a platter of Halloween finger food, transform turkey mince into mini mummies for a lean snack.

Halloween Hotdogs 

Halloween Hotdogs

Deceptively easy and incredibly impactful, these bloody finger Halloween hotdogs are the work of mere moments. Just carve up your hotdog sausages to look like fingers before cooking them, pop them in a hotdog bun and cover with blood tomato sauce.

Pizza Pockets

Pizza Pockets

Pastry and pizza in one – what’s not to love?! Use cheese and pizza toppings inside, and cut out a Jack O’ Lantern face on one side of the pastry, before sealing and cookie.

Scary Spaghetti 

Scary Scetti Halloween Recipe

The addition of a little olive spider along with those sharp vampire fangs takes this plate of pasta to a whole new level of creepy.

Ghostly Caesar Salad

Ghostly Caesar Salad

Seriously, how clever is this? Give yourself the easy option with a prepackaged caesar salad, and simply make cookie cutter bread ghost and croutons and add a ‘boo’ cheese message.

Graveyard Snags

Turkey sausage mummies, with broccoli eyes, bathed in a blood-red sauce laid to rest in a graveyard of carrot headstones. Utterly brilliant.

Halloween Spag Bol

Turn humble spag bol into a horrifying Halloween dinner by adding cheese and olive eyeballs.
