Four Savory Recipes for Before Trick-or-treating

Halloween is a holiday primarily for children. Sure, offices have parties. And, of course, adults can dress up and go to parties of their own. But, by and large, it’s a kid-focused holiday. Generally speaking, we like that. It’s enjoyable to watch the children in our lives have fun. And seeing the kids who knock on our doors in cute outfits is a treat for us!

But, when it comes to many savory Halloween foods, they aren’t always appealing to the whole family. We know that Halloween might be mainly for the kids, but we believe that everyone should be able to join in on the fun. So, before you head out trick-or-treating with the children in your life, enjoy these recipes with everyone in your family, regardless of age!

Low-carb Roasted Pumpkin Deviled Eggs


These deviled eggs are adorable! Olives are often an acquired taste that kids grow into enjoying. But when olives are used to make creepy, cute spiders on top of purple eggs, we think even picky eaters will try them! They are fun for kids and delicious for the adults in your house! They’re made with pumpkin and tons of spice. While the recipe calls for roasting your own pumpkin, you can use the canned version as long as it isn’t seasoned as a pie filling! A serving has 177 calories and 1.4 grams of net carbs. Get the recipe.  

Pumpkin Cannelloni with Thyme Butter Sauce


If you want something warm and filling before heading out trick-or-treating, this recipe is for you! We love pasta recipes that are low in carbs. The cannelloni sheets are made with eggs and cheese. They combine to create a cross between a thin omelet, crepe and pasta that is perfect to stuff with the cheesy pumpkin filling. The result is a meal that is an elevated comfort dish. While it’s ideal for a quick Halloween meal, you will find yourself making it all winter long! A serving has 315 calories, 7.3 grams of carbs and 1.3 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.

Keto Pumpkin and Prosciutto Pizza


Pizza is a classic food for Halloween. One of our team members remembers her dad always took her and her siblings out for pizza on the way home from trick-or-treating. It was always packed! But pizzerias often don’t have low-carb options. Save yourself the headache of trying to find something on the menu and make it at home. This recipe uses a fathead dough crust to cut out the carbs. Then it has a pumpkin sauce instead of tomato to lower the sugar content. It’s topped with caramelized onions, mozzarella and prosciutto. If you have picky kids in your party, you can swap the toppings for something more kid-friendly. Or you can make more of the straightforward dough, make them a different pizza and let the adults keep this for themselves! A serving has 457 calories, eight grams of carbs and three grams of fiber. Get the recipe.    

Halloween Keto Cauliflower


Maybe you’re planning on a mostly normal dinner but still want a little Halloween flair. If that’s your plan, this is your side. This sweet and spicy curried cauliflower brain is perfect for vegetarian zombies. It’s so striking looking you’ll want to take a picture to post on Facebook! It’s easy to make, but it’s probably one of the only side dishes we’ve ever suggested that requires decorating. When you serve it, you’ll get a reaction to its dramatic appearance and its wonderful taste! It’s a fun way to celebrate and a tasty way to eat your veggies. A serving has 228 calories, 10 grams of carbs and three grams of fiber. Get the recipe.

We hope you have a scarily delicious Halloween. These recipes should help you make your celebration be a graveyard smash!
