F2: Finger Breadsticks

Welcome again to Friday's Feast. Today I'll be talking about making scary breadsticks in the shape of fingers for Halloween.

If you don't know what Friday's Feast is all about, please read the Friday's Feast page for a more detailed explanation. If you want to join in on the feast— be sure to leave a comment and include the URL to your post so I and others can know of your contribution. Also, if you want to see a particular topic— feel free to suggest it as well (I'm always looking for new inspirations).

Participants in this weeks Feast are as follows:

With inspirations from MS and Mrs. Mackinac…

Every Halloween we like to have a spooky spread set out so that our children and our grandchildren have a place to stop and eat something other than candy. My wife is such the Martha Stuart and likes to have dishes that reflect the celebration. This is one of those dishes that we always like to make. Makes 8 to 12.

Finger Breadsticks:
1 package of breadstick dough
Almond slices
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
  2. Separate the breadsticks, then cut the lengths in half.
  3. Shape the dough into fingers.
    Don't worry if they don't look exactly like fingers, that's what makes them scarry.
  4. Place an almond sliver on one end of the finger.
    To make it extra scary, place the pointy end of the sliver pointing outwards.
  5. Cook for 10-15 minutes depending upon the time on the package.
  6. Enjoy.

Given that next month is Thanksgiving for our family, I have decided to have Thanksgiving be the theme for the entire month of November.

  • Do you "Talk Turkey"— or talk to your turkey?
  • Who does Thanksgiving in your family— are you the host, or the guest?
  • What craziness ensues when the family comes to visit?
  • Are you traditional with your dishes, or are you experimental?
  • Do you have any family recipes handed down for generations at your table?
  • What do you do with all those leftovers?

So grab a turkey leg, pull up a chair and link up. Even if you are Canadian and have celebrated earlier this year— or have a post from last year's festivities your links are always welcome.

this is an awesome idea! my kids don't need any additional coaxing when it comes to eating bread, but they will get a huge kick out of this!! spooky indeed!! happy halloween, chris!

I would probably need to soak the almond slivers in red food dye to attract my Princess wannabe, but that is a cool idea!
You're linked!

So for November, are those specific sub-topics per week, or just Thanksgiving all month? I have at least one old Thanksgiving post that I could have you link too, plus that Turkey post from last June, which isn't Thanksgiving-y at all, but still pretty funny. I'll come comment again with some links once I look around in my archives.

@Deb… Even if you can't find breadsticks in a can (I couldn't last night)— you can still use any can of rolls. Just make some garlic butter to coat on the top for added flavor.

@Sprite's Keeper… I never thought of dying the almonds. Correction— They are actually Almond slices, not almond slivers. I'm changing the recipe to suit.

@Mina… I just threw out some ideas to get you to think, there is no specific topic— just a theme. I find it very restrictive to focus on a single topic, so I'm going with themes for the next few months.

We had enchiladas for Thanksgiving. It's a traditional Canadian meal for this holiday.
