I think I speak for all moms when I say we wanna be the cool mom.  The one that the kids like to have around, that plans fun stuff for every holiday or just because, and stays up with reasonable trends.

I am not that mom.  Well, I try to be but one way or another I slip into the “I’m an adult and have responsibilities and can’t keep up with everything” trap.  For instance, my kids knew what a fox says long before I did.  They also came home singing the I’m a Gummy Bear song the day after I had just seen the video.  For the first time.  My apologies if that song is now stuck in your head because it’s in mine now.  Darn it.  My head hurts.

I may not be up to speed on what a fox says or even have fun plans every second of every day but I do know how to whip up a quick and easy Halloween dinner.  These Halloween Pizza Mummy Sliders are perfect whether you planned them way in advance or the morning of.  I do that.  Yep.

Serve them along side some worms and pill bugs {roasted spaghetti squash speckled with black beans} and my Halloween Deviled Egg Eyeballs.  The kids will get a kick out of it and you’ll be the cool mom, if only for a second.

Halloween Pizza Mummy Sliders

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: approximately 10 small patties


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 10 slices pepperoni
  • large black olives, sliced
  • 5 servings of string cheese, cut in half


  1. Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat.
  2. In a large bowl mix the beef, egg, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Add a splash of milk if necessary to help incorporate the bread crumbs. Form into small patties, I used a 1/8 cup measurement to ensure they were all equal.
  3. Cook patties in the large skillet until each side is browned, about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and allow the kids to create their mummy faces by placing a pepperoni on each patty, two olive slices for eyes, and ripping the string cheese into strands for the wrap.
  5. Place under the broiler until the cheese in melted, about a minute.
  6. Serve as an open faced sandwich or by itself.
