We’re turning the mom-o-meter on high and pulling out all the tricks this Halloween. Instead of waiting for the dark, we’re getting the kids to a little spook fest at the kitchen table and we’re sure they’ll enjoy it. From ghost toast to creepy eggs eyes, we’re making breakfast hauntingly fun. And well, giving the kids a few things to brag about – cool mom status.
1 tablespoon butter
3 pitted black olives, halved
6 green peas
Ketchup or hot pepper sauce (or both)
In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Crack 2 eggs into the pan, 1 on each side of the skillet, and cook until the whites are set and the yolks are still soft, about 5 minutes.
Arrange side by side on a plate. Repeat with the remaining 4 eggs.
Place an olive half, cut side up, on top of each yolk and place a pea on top of each olive. Using the ketchup in a squeeze bottle, draw “bloodshot veins” on each eye.

1 large apple, cored and cut lengthwise into 8 slices
24 yogurt-covered raisins
Form some sausage into patties (I used turkey sausage because I had it on hand, but any ground sausage will do). Cook over medium heat until browned, 5-7 minutes. While the sausage is cooking, prepare the spider legs using red bell pepper. I sliced the pepper thinly and then cut off the curved part of the slice to use for the legs. I secured them with toothpicks (cut in half). Cut green olives in half and place them on top for the eyes.
