Freaky Franks

October 26, 2009

Halloween is here and that means it’s time to come up with some SPOOKY culinary creations!


The funniest part of this recipe is that you’ll have everyone guessing just how you got the “arms” and “legs” through the franks!


I test drove a batch of these Freaky Franks with some of Kenya’s buddies last week in advance of the holiday and the kids loved eating them. And parents can’t seem to get over how creepy they look covered in “blood” (tomato sauce).


This is the perfect recipe to make WITH your kids before a long night of trick or treating.
