Two recipes that will fortify ghosts and goblins of any age before an evening of trick-or-treating.
When Halloween falls on a weeknight, it's a mad dash to get kids home, fed and in costume before embarking on an evening of tricks and treats. But thanks to two pantry staples — ramen and a can of French onion soup — a warm, filling meal can be on the table before you can say "No more candy." Obviously, there's no need for dessert.
SPOOKY NOODLES WITH EYES AND HAM BONES
Note: Using thick slices of leftover ham is ideal, but ham steaks work well, too. If you don't have black food dye, it's easy to mix your own with 3 parts blue food dye, 2 1/2 parts red and 1 part green. Adjust until you get the desired shade. Recipe from Maruchan.
2 (3-ounce) packages of beef-flavor ramen noodle soup
2 eggs, separated
