    Starrynews's Note:

    For those familiar with the Monster Toes made from the cocktail franks (a la Monster Toes (For Halloween)), you know what's going on here. A wonderful treat for Halloween, these take your usual food and switch it up with a creepy presentation! While I enjoy the cocktail frank version, as well, I often host a Halloween brunch, so it made sense to switch it up to a breakfast version! I have successfully used the vegetarian sausage links in this recipe (as pictured).

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Prepare the sausage according to package directions.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, cut each flour tortilla into 10 thin strips.
    4. 4
      Halve the sausage links when they are done cooking.
    5. 5
      Leaving the rounded edge of the sausage link visible, begin wrapping about 1/3 of the way down from this edge with a tortilla strip. Wrap "messily," not all on top of itself, so that it looks like a mummy bandage.
    6. 6
      Pin the tortilla strip in place using a toothpick through the tortilla and sausage.
    7. 7
      Bake about 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove "toes" from oven and immediately stick an almond into the top of the rounded edge of the sausage link, as though it was a creepy, broken toenail.
    9. 9
      Enjoy! They are good plain or with some maple syrup for dipping!

      Since I was just playing around with this recipe more than anything else, I cut it in half, but still enjoyed putting these things together & now I want to try out some BABY one if I can get them the right size & use 'em as 'thumbs' for finger food! Anyway, we enjoyed these monster toes as part of a breakfast & I might just do 'em another time when we have overnight company! Thanks for posting the recipe!

      Cute - we actually used a piece of a banana chip as the toenail and like it. We also cut a bit out of the tip so it sunk in. In the picture the banana chip is on the left and the walnut on the right - I was out of almonds)

      Thanks Starrynews! Made for Adopt a Veggie Tag.

      What a cute idea. I know it's not Halloween but I just had to try these. I used Jimmy Dean turkey sausage links. I also cut the recipe in half and served it with some real maple syrup. I even enjoyed the slivered almond with this. Very easy to prepare and taste great. Had it with scrambled eggs for breakfast. Thanks for posting. :)
