Halloween can be very warm in Dallas so grilling is never really out here.  Put a good meal on your kids’ tummies before they go out trick-or-treating and consume massive amounts of candy.

Or invite your neighbors and friends over to start out the holiday with some grilled treats.

Grilling Recipes for Halloween

Spooky Bat Barbecue Wings

What you need:

  • 2 kg. chicken wings
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 cup honey hickory barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup dark soy sauce
  • A few drops black food coloring

In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, teriyaki sauce, honey hickory barbecue sauce and soy sauce. Mix until sugar has dissolved. Carefully add black food coloring, adding more if needed, until desired dark color is achieved. Add chicken wings to the bowl and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to overnight. When ready, cook wings in a pre-heated grill over medium high heat until cooked through, about 20-25 minutes. Place wings on a table with plastic or toy bats around for added fun.

Jack-o-Lantern Grilled Burgers

What you need:

  • 1/2 kg. ground pork
  • 1/4 kg. sausage meat
  • 1 packet Ranch dressing mix
  • 4 slices cheese
  • 4 slices burger buns, toasted

Cut out jack-o-lantern eyes, nose and mouth on each cheese slice then set aside. Mix together ground pork, sausage meat and Ranch dressing mix in a large bowl until all ingredients are well-combined. Shape into 4 patties then cook in a pre-heated grill over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes per side or until cooked through. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before placing patties on the buns and topping with cutout cheese slices. Serve immediately.

Grilled Veggies Rest in Peas

What you need:

  • 2 potatoes, peeled and sliced in rounds
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced in rounds
  • 1 onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 1/2 cups green peas
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Melt butter in a saucepan then cook onion until tender, about 4 minutes. Add all-purpose flour and stir constantly until mixture begins to golden. Slowly add milk and when the mixture thickens, stir in cream, nutmeg and cayenne pepper. Add peas and cook for 3 minutes more until peas are cooked through. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside. Place potatoes and carrots in heavy duty aluminum foil, season with salt and pepper then cook on a pre-heated grill over medium-high heat until vegetables are tender, about 25-30 minutes. When ready, arrange grilled vegetables on pea mixture vertically to achieve a “graveyard look”.
