A Month of Spookdays: Ghost Roast

Ghost Roast


Later in the month, I will be heading to a potluck. It is far-away, and in a park, so I needed something that would be very portable, and good cold.  I also wanted something savory and vegetarian, because there’s always tons of meat and sweets at these things. Though I may experiment with a few more ideas, so far, testing is positive for these little ghosties.  I used a 4″ ghost cookie-cutter, so these are a perfect snack size. They are also tasty.


2 cans Pilsbury Crescent seamless dough (because making dough is a pain in my ghoulish butt)
1 small green bell pepper finely chopped
1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 potato, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp oregano
Olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 c cream cheese
1 egg
1 tblsp water
1/2 c cheddar cheese, grated

Toss veggies with salt, pepper, oregano, and a light drizzle of olive oil. Spread on  greased cookie sheet and roast at 350° for about 20 minutes, until veggies are tender and a little brown on the edges. Dump them in a bowl and mix them with the cream cheese while still warm, so the cream cheese mixes more easily. Set aside.

Roll out your dough, rolling each can separately, to about 1/8″ thickness.  I just tried to get it thin–the dough is very springy. On one sheet, use your ghost cookie-cutter to lightly score shapes so you know where to put the filling. Put a forkful of filling on each ghost shape, avoiding the edges:


Place second dough sheet over the first, and press around the filling, so you can see where it is when you cut out your shapes:


Cut out your little ghosties. Mix egg and water in a small bowl, and brush the tops of each ghost lightly but thoroughly.  Put a pinch of grated cheddar on top of each ghost.

Place ghosts on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375° for 12 minutes. Makes about 10 ghosties.
