Many years ago, I made dairy-free Mummy Dogs for the kids for Halloween dinner, so of course some sort of silly Halloween dinner became “tradition.” Sometimes the main dish is simple (see: Mummy Dogs), and sometimes it’s more complex. Here are links to a few of our favorites, with notes on dairy-free adaptations. Of course they don’t look much like the original recipe photos, but the kids still think they’re fun. Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!

Bloody Baked Rats (pictured above)

Instead of making meatloaf, I made a simple dairy-free meatball mixture for the rats using ground turkey, Panko bread crumbs, egg, and Italian seasoning and used dairy-free pasta sauce for the “blood.”

Jack O’ Lantern Pot Pie

Jack O’ Lantern Pot Pie

Make your favorite dairy-free chicken pot pie recipe and cut a Jack O’ Lantern face in the top crust. Or, buy your favorite dairy-free frozen pot pie and do the same.

Pasta with Eyeballs

Egg white eyeballs–nailed it

 

String cheese eyeballs

The original recipe calls for slices of string cheese for the whites of the eyes. I used hard boiled egg whites for those who can’t eat dairy. And our grocery was out of spinach fettuccine, so I used multicolored fusilli. Nailed it. 

Mummy Dogs

Use dairy-free hot dogs and crescent rolls. Omit the cheese.
