Torn flesh pancakes with blood

Torn flesh pancakes with blood

Halloween and parties often center around candy and sweets. In all of the holiday excitement, regular meals feel boring and are often rushed through or even skipped. Make this Halloween or your next zombie party different by making breakfast a part of the festivities! These are all super easy to make and are sure to delight—ahem, gross out.

Torn Flesh Pancakes With Blood


  • Your favorite pancake recipe
  • Red food coloring
  • Red jam, such as raspberry or strawberry


  1. Make your favorite pancake recipe only add a few drops of the red food coloring to the liquid before mixing into the dry ingredients.
  2. Continue following your pancake recipe until all the batter has been cooked into pancakes. These can be made whatever size you want.
  3. Rip off the edges of the pancake, this will help it look more like torn pieces of flesh.
  4. Using the back of a spoon spread some of the jam onto the plate in a circle larger than the pancake.
  5. Place pancake on jam and use the back of the spoon make some of the jam from the plate go on the torn edges of the pancake.
  6. Add some jam on top of the pancake and stack another pancake on top. Also make some of the jam go on the torn edges.
  7. Make some gashes in the flesh by simply pinching out some pancake from the top and add a little jam to the "wound."
  8. They are now ready to serve!
Scrambled brains

Scrambled brains

Scrambled Brains

Yield: 2 servings


  • 4 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons milk
  • 4 drops red food coloring
  • Salt to taste
  • Butter


  1. Scramble together the eggs, milk, food coloring, and salt.
  2. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat.
  3. Cook eggs in pan, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove pan from heat as soon as the eggs are cooked, try not to over cook them.
  5. In the pan separate the eggs into equal-sized piles for as many "brains" you wish to make.
  6. Take each pile and press them into the small bowl. Take your plate and place it top side down over the bowl and flip over. You should now have a nice pile of brains on your plate.
  7. If you want you can also use your fingers to carefully indent the center of the brain.
Fried skin

Fried Skin

To make "fried skin" I used turkey bacon, but you can use whatever type of bacon you like. The idea is to cut or break it into small enough pieces so that it looks like bits of skin instead of bacon. You can cut your bacon before you cook it or after. Cut it into strips like I did or irregular chunks . . . whatever you think will gross out best!

Severed toasted fingers

Severed toasted fingers

Severed Toasted Fingers


  • Bread
  • Butter
  • Red jam, such as raspberry or strawberry


  1. Toast and butter the bread to your preference.
  2. Use the sharp knife to cut four finger shapes out of the toast.
  3. Arrange on plate and add nice big globs of "blood" (jam).

Happy Halloween!
