    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    While cleaning out my pantry (ugh, what a chore) I found some wooden bbq skewers that have been replaced by metal ones. What do I do with these? The little wheels in my mind started grinding and I came up with this idea for my Halloween Boo-ffet.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Spray each skewer with non-stick spray.
    3. 3
      Wrap each breadstick around the skewer and flatten out the end a bit.
    4. 4
      You will have to work with the dough a bit, but place 2 black olives on the top for eyes and a small piece of pimiento in the "mouth" for the tongue.
    5. 5
      Bake on a prepared baking sheet for approximately 20 minutes or until the breadsticks are golden brown.
    6. 6
      Remove from the oven and immediately brush with the melted butter and sprinkle with the herbs/spices of your choice. Let cool.
    7. 7
      If desired, slide the skewers off the bread or serve with the skewers in for easy handling.
    8. 8
      NOTE: If desired, make the dough from scratch and use food coloring to make them green or knead in paste food coloring, using gloves to shield your hands from getting stained.

      Phenomenal idea!!! I made these from scratch and use some green food coloring. I will admit it was a bit time cosuming shaping them out into the snake forms but man was it worth it. People were speachless at the dinner table! They couldn't believe they were actually edible. Thanks for the ghastly idea!

      These are so cute. If you don't like olives or pimentos, try cutting up dark raisens or a peppercorn for the eyes. Use string red licorice for the mouth. I would bake them first, cool, then poke a small hole with a toothpick & insert a small piece of red licorice. You could also make a sweet treat by brushing with butter & sprinkling with cinnamon sugar.

      This is a cute idea!! I haven't tried this yet but was thinking about using pretzel dough instead for my 4yr old daughters daycare for a Halloween party or make it sweet, I don't know if the little kids would eat the black olives (she loves them) but I don't even like the pimento so I was wondering how I could change it a little to be "toddler friendly" any suggestions? Thanks
