My family enjoys Halloween and we have fun making Halloween themed foods. This is one that is appreciated for being yummy and easy (in addition to looking cool). It’s a great dish to take to a Halloween party or potluck.
My kiddos are such fans of these beef and cheese pockets that we make them all year long (minus the Halloweeny faces).
Halloween Jack O’Lantern Dinner Beef & Cheese Pockets
1 pound ground beef
2 Tubes biscuits (large sized)
8 oz. mozzarella or provolone cheese
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Brown the meat. stir in the Italian seasoning and set aside.
Flatten half the biscuits out using your hands and place on a cookie sheet.
Using a paring knife, decorate the other half of the biscuits. Flatten each biscuit with your hands before you decorate it. We make jack o’lantern faces, simple pumpkins and mummy faces.
Place a spoonful of ground beef on the flattened biscuit, add cheese and top with a decorated biscuit. Pinch the edges of the 2 biscuits together to seal the filling in.
Bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
We like to dip them in mustard or ketchup. You can add ghoulish ketchup garnish for more fun. Enjoy.
