Halloween Night Dinner

"Eyeballs over ants"


I decided to try something different and fun for dinner on Halloween. I settled on meatballs with rice and breadsticks. The dinner turned out cute and I had fun making it even if I ended up making the breadsticks from canned dough (ran out of time).

Breadsticks, I saw this in a magazine but not sure which one probably Family Fun
1 can of refrigerator breadsticks
3 tablespoons butter
seasonings of your choice
Unroll breadsticks, cut in half. Take each half and cut up about 1/4 of the way on both sides. Roll the cut edges into knobs so they look like bones. Cook according to package directions. After cooked spread melted butter over the bones and add the seasonings of your choice.

Meatballs adapted from The Lion House Christmas cookbook
3 slices bread (white or wheat)
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten well
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Worcehstire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 onion, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl, soak bread slices in milk until soft. Add eggs, ground beef, onion, and seasonings; mix until well blended. Shape mixture into 3/4 inch or 1 inch balls, place meatballs on shallow baking sheets and bake 10 to 15 minutes.

2 cups ketchup
1 cup grape jelly
Mix well.

Add meatballs to crockpot and pour ketchup mixture over the top and cook on high for about 2 hours. Serve over rice.
