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.


Egg Eyes



1 tablespoon butter
6 eggs
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.

Monster Mouths

4 cups fruit-flavored yogurt
1 large apple, cored and cut lengthwise into 8 slices
24 yogurt-covered raisins
In a small bowl, add 1 cup yogurt; top with 2 apple slices placed parallel to each other, peel side facing outward, about 1 inch apart. Arrange 6 raisins between the apple slices to resemble teeth. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
Ghost EggsMelt some cooking fat in a hot pan. Carefully crack two eggs into the pan, making sure to keep the yolks close together. Let the egg white run down in one direction. Cook the eggs until they’re set, 3-5 minutes. Let the eggs cool and trim the egg whites with kitchen shears. Cut out the hole for the mouth with a small circle cutter or piping tip.Mummy ToastsToast some bread. Cut into rectangles. Layer with thinly-cut pieces of white cheese (I used Havarti). Cut black olives in half and place at the top for the eyes.

Sausage Spiders

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.
