A few years ago, we hosted a Dead Man’s Diner party for Halloween and I felt like a mad scientist in my kitchen bringing body part shaped food to life. I found it particularly easy to transform ordinary food into eyeballs and decorated a store bought pumpkin pie to look like a P-Eye.
I know some people would be totally grossed out when served body part shaped food, but we found that the majority of our 80+ guests gleefully gobbled up this creepy cuisine.
Waitresses dressed in old fashioned diner uniforms served up Bone Calzones, Hand-Burgers Dripping in Blood with Finger Fries, Cannibals Chowder in Skull Shaped Bread Bowls, Grilled Feet with a side of Bone Chips, and hot Open Face Sandwiches.
If you’d like to serve up some of this gruesome grub, you can find all of the recipes in my cookbook, Hungry Halloween featuring Movie Monster Munchies, Bewitched Buffet, and Dead Man’s Diner which is available on Amazon.com (here.)
For the party, our kitchen served as the diner complete with a classic lunch counter.Are you thinking of hosting a Dead Man’s Diner party yourself? If so, you can find decorating information here at Hungry Halloween.com.
After all the appet-eye-sers were devoured, and I do mean devoured, we removed the empty dishes and replaced them with lots of Deadserts, including a Pumpkin P-Eye which is hiding at the back of the table.One of the most popular Deadserts was the Creme Brulee P-Eye. It looked and tasted fantastic. You can find the recipe and even a video here at Hungry Halloween.
Now, I know you are just dying to find out how to make your own Pumpkin P-Eye, so here it is.
