I don’t do Halloween.
What I mean is, I don’t do the dressing up scaring the cheese doodles out of myself and others kind of Halloween.
I do the eat tons of candy, make themed treats watch movies all night with the lights on kind of Halloween, still holding on tightly to Mr. LTSL….
You never know, evil ghosts and creepy things can still appear in the light.
What are you guys doing for Halloween?!? Is anyone hosting a party, dressing up, stealing your kids candy?!?
Will anyone else be eagerly awaiting the Jimmy Kimmel I stole your candy video?!?! Hahahah so good … yet, so evil.. but so good.
The last couple of years I’ve focused on snack-ish items with my Halloween Chocolate Funfetti Cookies and a healthy dose of Halloween Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispy Squares … this year though I have something not just spooky but so delicious and savory, because let’s be honest, as much as I’d like to live on cookies and cakes and doughnuts ( oh, my) – I can’t.
I need sloppy joes. Ooooorrr in this case, sloppy skulls.
3 Cups Flour
1 Tbsp Instant Yeast
1 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 1/4 Cup Water
1 pack dried sloppy Joe Mix
1 can tomato paste
1 lb medium ground beef ( you can totally sub in ground chicken, turkey or pork)
1 1/4 Cup Water
In a large bowl, combine flour, yeast, sugar, salt and olive oil.
Slowly add water and knead until dough comes together.
Cover and allow to rise for at least 30 minutes.
While the dough rises, on medium high heat, brown the ground beef – should take about 10 minutes.
Add sloppy joe mix, tomato paste and water.
Simmer for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425 oc.
Once dough rises, punch down and empty onto a lightly floured surface.
Separate the dough into 4 even pieces.
Roll each dough piece into a 1/4 inch circle, place into greased skull cake pan.
Carefully fill each with sloppy filling and cover with remaining dough.
Repeat with 3 other dough pieces.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Have a happy Halloween!!
