6 Halloween Lunches

6 Halloween Lunches Collage

Holidays and celebrations are my favorite reasons to make themed food. This year I have 6 new lunches for Halloween. See the end of this post for Halloween lunches I made other years.

Bat themed food

I made this lunch for my husband. The sandwich was made with a Treat Inside bat cookie cutter set. I used this CuteZCute Animal Palz set to make the bat shaped egg.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Top: Bat – peanut butter sandwich on wheat bread, chocolate sprinkles, Garden Veggie Chips Ghosts & Bats (I only used the bats in this lunch)

Bottom Left: Raspberries

Bottom Right: Bat – hard boiled egg shaped with this

Halloween Themed Lunch

This lunch was another one I made for myself. I love the combination of grains and cheese; fresh fruit and vegetables rounded out this healthy meal.

Container: LunchBots Trio

Top Left: Red grapes

Top Right: Boo – Cheddar cheese pushed into a stamp cookie cutter, Trader Joe’s Quinoa blend

Bottom: Cucumbers, black olives

Ghost Taco Salad

I am not sure how obvious this is but this is supposed to be a ghost taco salad. I was worried about my lettuce getting soggy – it was not crisp but it was edible and I would do this again. It was a satisfying lunch.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Ghost – Mexican cheese blend shaped with a ghost cookie cutter, taco salad – lettuce, black beans, salsa

Top Right: Pumpkins – cantaloupe cut with a cookie cutter

Bottom Right: Tostitos Scoops

Pumpkin Shaped Scrambled Eggs

My 13 year old niece designed this for herself and we made it together. If you look closely you can see the mushroom face on the scrambled eggs jack-o-lantern.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Jack-o-lantern – scrambled eggs, mushroom face, mushrooms sauteed in butter

Top Right: Mini cucumber slices

Bottom Right: Strawberries dipped in orange candy melts with chocolate details

Pumpkin Onigiri Lunch

I tried using pumpkin powder for the first time. It added a little color to my rice jack-o-lantern but only a mild taste. I think this bento would look better with orange Cheddar cheese next to the blackberries but it was a spur of the moment meal with ingredients I had in the house.

Container: LunchBots Trio

Top Left: Jack-o-lantern Onigiri (rice ball) – cooked Nishiki rice, I added some pumpkin powder after the rice was cooked, spinach details, leaf pick, lettuce

Top Right: Cucumbers, cherry tomatoes

Bottom: Blackberries, Cheddar cheese

witch stamped sandwich lunch

I made these happy witches with pumpernickel bread I had in the house and a stamp cookie cutter.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Witches – Pumpernickel bread cream cheese sandwiches, snow peas

Top Right: Moon and stars – Cheddar cheese, black beans, salsa

Bottom Right: Apple slices (treated the exposed sides with a dip in water and lemon juice)
