Sloppy Joe Jack-O-Lanterns - Halloween Food

We made some fun and easy Sloppy Joe Jack-O-Lanterns for supper last night. A yummy treat for Halloween. Just cut cheese for the facial features and add to the sandwich. Broccoli makes a neat pumpkin stem. Plus, it's an excuse to play with your food! I think this is the first time that both my kids ate their entire Sloppy Joe. A little creativity goes a long way (but totally not my idea. I stole the recipe from a 2004 Taste of Home's Halloween Food & Fun magazine).

Afterward we used our Mr. Potato Head pieces to create crazy pumpkins. What kind of pumpkins are you creating this weekend?

I love the sloppy joes jack o lanterns! How creative! Isn't it funny, too, how a face or design can make all the difference in whether kids will eat something or not! :--)

Thanks for the sloppy joe idea... I'm filing that one away for next year. And I LOVE that you used Mr. Potato Head pieces on a pumpkin... so clever!
