Halloween Toast Cut Outs

Updated: Oct 9, 2019

Cookie cutters make this cute breakfast or hors d’oeuvres super easy and versatile

Even if I’m not throwing a Halloween party, I still like to do little things to stretch a holiday as much as I can for the kids. I decorate inside the house, even if I don’t decorate outside; I slip little love notes in my kids’ lunchboxes on festive note paper (thanks to my Aunt who has supplied me with the most unique, personalized note pads and pencils since I was a kid – and I still have them); and I create festive food.

I don’t remember where I got these cookies cutters, but they’re autumn themed and include a pumpkin. So, I simply cut the shapes out of toast. I mean, what’s more fun than toast in the shape of a leaf? (Well, for my kids, probably one smothered in Nutella.)

I shmeared on some natural peanut butter, placed some blanched, sliced almonds as the eyes and mouth and presented a fun, Halloween breakfast. (I ate the crusts :)

These little toasts, of course, lend themselves to many variations. For a party, toast up slices of bread in the oven, cut out shapes and top with anything. Here are some suggestions:

-goat cheese and honey

-goat cheese and fig jam

-goat cheese or mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes

-avocado topped with a sprig of cilantro

-ricotta and jarred roasted peppers

-ricotta, cinnamon and strawberries

-cream cheese and smoked salmon

-marscapone and peaches

-marscapone and blueberries

-pesto and sun dried tomatoes

-cheddar cheese and tart apple (maybe broil this)

The possibilities are endless. If you have time, you could use cookie cutters to cut out shapes out of thicker vegetables, like potatoes, sweet potatoes, and winter squashes (which would have to be cooked.)

Tell me if you made festive foods this year!!
