Monster Toes (Breakfast/Brunch Version)

Total Time
Prep 20 mins

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).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Prepare the sausage according to package directions.
  3. Meanwhile, cut each flour tortilla into 10 thin strips.
  4. Halve the sausage links when they are done cooking.
  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. Pin the tortilla strip in place using a toothpick through the tortilla and sausage.
  7. Bake about 5 minutes.
  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. 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. :)
