Bloody Bones


Things are progressing with our house.  All the inspections are over and "passed".  We are set to close on December 5th.  My husband even found a lot that is worth considering out in Fort Collins.  It would be so nice to find something before we moved out there.  Then we could send our 6 year old to the school where our house would be, and we wouldn't have to move him around next summer.  Way too much to think about when moving with kids.  It was much easier when we moved to Iowa and he was only 18 months old!  

This post may sound gross, but it isn't I promise!  I hope you are enjoying my week of Halloween themed treats.  They are so much fun to come up with, especially when you have a 6 year old little boy to share them with!  This was one of his favorites.  He pretended he was a vampire all through dinner.  These are so easy too! I only used Parmesan Cheese and Garlic, but you could flavor these however you wanted.  You could add Italian Seasoning or Basil too. 


Bloody Bones
Adapted from Pillsbury
Printable Recipe

1 can Pillsbury Breadsticks
2 Tbls Butter, melted.
1 Tbls Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp Garlic Powder (plus any other seasons you would like)
Pizza Sauce

Preheat oven to 375.  Open the can of breadstick dough, and separate into 12 sticks.  In your hands roll it to about 12 inches long.  Loosely tie each end in a knot, so they look like bones.  Place on a lined baking sheet.  Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until lightly browned. 

Meanwhile, mix together butter, cheese and garlic.  Brush breadsticks with butter mixture once you take them out of the oven. Serve with sauce.

Oh, these are great! What a cute idea for Halloween...I bet your son loved these :)

PS...I can't remember buying much flank steak in Iowa either, but sometimes you find it going by the name London Broil. It has absolutely fabulous flavor...just don't overcook and cut thin slices across the grain :)

I'm so glad I clicked over to see your blog today! We are having a party tomorrow night and I need more savory things and I am definitely going to make this!! I love breadsticks and these are so cute. Congrats on moving to CO. I've been to Fort Collins and it's beautiful! I often daydream about it during our hot & humid months here in TN.

I'm loving your Halloween themed foods...but I'm guessing only half as much as your little guy :) Congrats on the house! Colorado has always been a place I'd love to live.

The ingredient list sounds simple and delicious; I might just have to eat these bloody bones with eyes shut :)

I imagine these being at one of those Halloween fairs for kids. You know the ones where you stick your hand through a box to feel the "eyes of dead people," which turn out to be peeled grapes?

Good luck with the move. I hope figuring out school districts long distance isn't too hard or do you already know which one you want him in?
