9 people made this

IngredientsServes: 24

  • 1 plastic face mask
  • 175g prosciutto
  • 2 pimento-stuffed green olives
  • 680g cream cheese
  • 170g grated Cheddar cheese
  • 170g grated Havarti cheese
  • 85g pitted green olives, chopped
  • 55g roasted red peppers, drained and chopped

MethodPrep:1hr ›Extra time:30min › Ready in:1hr30min

  1. Lightly coat a plastic face mask with cooking spray. Line the face mask with cling film, taking care to press it down fully into the nose and eyes.
  2. Reserve two or three slices of prosciutto and set aside. Tear the remaining slices of prosciutto into strips and lay them into the mask to form the 'muscle tissue'. Start around the eyes, leaving eyes blank and then create the cheeks, chin and forehead.
  3. Take the two whole green olives and position them in the eye holes, pimento side-down. Set the mask aside.
  4. Combine cream cheese, Cheddar and Havarti cheeses in a mixing bowl. Add the chopped green olives and roasted red peppers. Use an electric mixer or clean hands to mix until thoroughly combined.
  5. Take a heaped spoonful of the cheese mixture and arrange it to form an eye around one olive, and then the other. Gently lay handfuls of the cheese mixture all around the mask, taking care not to move the slices of prosciutto. Press the cheese down as you work to fill in all of the crevices. When the mask is full, gently press in the cheese mixture all around the mask. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Turn the mask out onto a serving platter and gently remove the mask and the cling film. You should be left with a freaky face. If there is cheese showing around the bottom edges, use the reserved prosciutto slices to cover it before serving.

This was the gruesome hit of our this site pre-Halloween party. One of my co-workers scooped out an eyeball right away and ate it. Sick. The cheese mixture was exactly the right amount for the mask, and it firmed up nicely and held its shape. And it tasted really good! Tips: 1) It's tricky to position the olives so they don't get all wonky when you add the cheese filling. Next time, I might add them afterwards. 2) I used the edge of a spoon to emphasize the outline of the lips. I think that made it extra life-like. 3) The next time I make this, I might download a photo of the musculature of the face, and try to copy that with the prosciutto. Because that's how I roll. 4) This isn't just for Halloween; how about a Game of Thrones or Walking Dead viewing party?-29 Oct 2015

Made this for an appy before dinner tonight and everyone LOVED it! I used our favorite cheese ball recipe: 'Herman Reunion Cheese Ball' fron this site. I used black olives for the eyes too, b/c that's what I had on hand. This was super simple and turned out really cool looking (I wish the lighting was better b/c my pic does not do this justice). Awesome concept, and something that I would've never thought of...This is definitely gonna be a new Halloween staple in my house~YUM! Thanks for sharing.-31 Oct 2012

Halloween flayed man recipe - Recipes

Gory Halloween warning! Time to get squeamish with the Ghoulish Gourmet's creepy imagery of raw meat and viscera. I'm about to git medieval for Halloween and the following weeks Dia del los Muertos or Day of the Dead.

This Sinister Cheap$kate's ghastly recipes are laid out like a bloody scene from a Stephen King and Edgar Allen Poe story. Once you've digested this macabre blog post, your taste buds may nevermore be the same.

And if you're a vegetarian, avert your gaze! Or peak through hand-covered eyes to read my queasy prose. I'm sure to be on Morrissey's #hit list if he ever sees this - he's pop music's most morose vegan. (And I'm a big fan of his songs with The Smiths.)

Some of my most spooky recipes may make your skin crawl, while others will have your taste buds baying at the moon with pleasure, mouthful after mouthful.

So read on, and don't forget to click on any recipe name that will bring you kicking and screaming to my original blog post to see all the hair-raising details -- presented with gory gifs, bloodcurdling photos, grisly videos, and eerie text.

Right off the bat, I like my Chupacabra Carne Asada steak and hamburgers medium-rare. Oozing is fine by me - E. coli be damned!

Grilling meat supercharges the flavor and brings out the knuckle-dragging Neanderthal in this Paleo Chef.

Raw bloody carcasses of meat have been disturbingly depicted in fine art. Rembrandt van Rijn is primarily known as a Dutch painter of moody portraits during the 17th Century, and I am especially influenced by his "Carcass of Beef" (flayed ox) study - just check out the audacious composition with gory details.

The Chiaroscuro Chef photographs flesh against dark backgrounds lately (shot on a blackened cookie sheet) - usually lit from a single direction, with deep shadows, very much inspired by Caravaggio. An artfully dark and forbidding example is my recipe for Pasta alla Genovese, where I slice and dice cheap beef shank, slaughterous enough to make a zombie weep.

Offal is not so awful to this Carrion Chef. After watching a classic horror flick on the big screen, I cruise LA's fog-shrouded boulevards and alleyways during the midnight hour looking for ways to quell my ravenous appetites. for tacos, that is!

Buche (stomach,) lengua (tongue,) and tripas (intestines) are on the menu at sidewalk taquerias and taco trucks throughout Los Angeles. Watch the shuddersome viscera-splattered video below to see what stops me in my tracks.

On a lighter note while not meat the gooey insides of a Halloween special edition Oreo cookie is like sweetened bone marrow. You don't smash it to get to the finger-licking orange frosting, a simple twist will do.

Get your hands dirty knawing on my Rosemary's Baby Back Ribs. You'll need extra napkins to soak up the BBQ sauce smeared on your libs and dripping from your fingertips.

My Silence of the Lambs Curry is creepy-delicious. And my video cooking directions are as easy to follow as leading a lamb to the slaughter.

It can get messy cooking with meat. You have to have an iron stomach. Try breaking down a pork shoulder sometimes, like I do below for my ghastly Texas Chainsaw Carnitas video recipe.

It's probably the most artistically nauseating footage I've ever shot - but, boy does it taste heavenly when you cradle a stuffed tortilla, plump with citrus and cola marinated, slow-cooked pork.

Ground chicken is mushy and wet, more so than ground beef or pork.

Check out my ground poultry The Blob Patty Melt video to see what I mean -- yuk!

After chicken, pork is the cheapest flesh. When hacked, mangled, and minced into sausage, it's delicious for breakfast or added to stir fry like my Garroted Green Beans and Gruesome Ground Pork recipe below.

This may sound perverse but it's actually fun to animate with ground meat, it's like playing with Play-Doh, just greasier. Check out my video below to see the messiness.

Are you still with me? Man, are you are hardcore! I'm getting extra creeped-out just assembling this blog post.

Ever gut a fish? Whoa, that is one freaky task! Slice the belly open, yank out the internal organs then chop off the head -- oh, I'm feeling faint just remembering the slimy viscera and the nauseating smell - barf!

If you want to scare the bejesus out of your dining guest, then serve them a Jaws Whole Grilled Fish - head on!

This tin-framed, bloody looking slaughter scene comprised of tomato-sauced fat fingers of sardines is one of my most visited food blog posts. And the morbid visitors are mostly from Europe (Translyvania?) - go figure. My pasta dish, Suspiria Sardines in Tomato Sauce with Olive Oil over Pasta, is a delicious mouthful worth sinking your incisors into.

Sushi is typically made with freshly butchered raw fish. It's so artfully presented that you miss the gore that goes into each delicate slice of aquatic flesh.

Here's one of my tastefully shot Sushi recipe videos, the simply presented, Mothra Tuna Sushi.

Shrimp would not seem spooky, right? But, buy head-on jumbo shrimp and try beheading, peeling and removing the spine/backbone sometimes. ugh! But, man are they delicious when my Mom serves them up in her Stephen King Shrimp & Rice recipe.

Halloween has a dark streak of humor and some of my recipes do, too. Take my wacky Trump Orange Chicken Nightmare on K Street.. please. It's the color and shape of a pumpkin, just like our Twit-in-Chief, and looks like a McDonald's Chicken McNugget, but my entree is made with real chicken pieces, not a pink slime composite.

How about a recipe where a slice of Bride of Frankenstein Turkey Bacon swallows up a Brussels sprout like a disembodied human tongue. yikes!

My brother from another daddy, the Swamp Chef, visited a butcher shop in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and was feted about behind the scenes. They use the whole hog at Iverstine Farms Butcher.

So get out there and have an entertaining Halloween holiday. It's not all blood and guts! So, I'll leave you with an appallingly tasty ghost story.

Dragon's Eye Devilled Eggs

This is another very easy recipe and one of the most popular dishes of the night with people asking for "more of those dragon's eyes please". I know Devilled eggs are fantastically retro and that may have prevented you from serving them at a chi chi dinner party but they definitely have a place at Halloween. I mean I am serving up sliced up hot dogs so you know, while I'm here in kitschville.

I made two dozen "eyes" but you could certainly make just six but I tend to dreadfully overcater. Plus I had a lot of vegetarians to feed. I've never seen a dragon myself but the literature tells me that they have pupils like cats so be it.

  • 1 dozen eggs, hard boiled (use older eggs as the shells will come off more easily)
  • 6-7 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Sliced pitted black olives

Step 1 - Peel and slice boiled eggs in half horizontally. Gently remove the yolks and mash these up with the mayonnaise and curry powder and stuff them back into the egg whites.

Step 2 - Shake over a little smoked paprika using a small sieve and then place a sliver of the black olive in the centre.


Halloween flayed man recipe - Recipes

This recipe makes a medium-sized Screamin' Cheese Man, enough to feed about 15 people.

.Ingredients.
3 (8 oz.) packages soft goat cheese or cream cheese or
1 recipe Three Cheese Cheeseball plus
1/3 C. chopped parsley or chives
1/3 C. finely chopped nuts
2 tbsp. poppy seeds (optional)
2 small button mushrooms
3-4 broccoli florets
1 slice from a narrow red bell pepper

.Instructions.
1. On your serving platter, form your cheese into a man shape, like that pictured. If the legs and arms are at odd angles, it's gives the impression that he's writhing in pain.

3. Press the finely chopped nuts from the waist to neckline, to make a nut shirt. Leave "hands" bare.

.Tips.
* You can put him together out of whatever ingredients you like. Soft goat cheese, plain cream cheese, or the Three Cheese Cheeseball recipe below.
* This is one of the most easily adjustable easy Halloween recipes you can make. Want to make a smaller Screamin' Man for a small dinner party? Use less cheese. Want a larger one? Simply buy more cheese. Since the rest is just decorating, it's easy to adjust your ingredients.

.Three Cheese CheeseBall.

.Ingredients.
2 C. finely shredded swiss cheese, room temperature
2 C. finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese, room temperature
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 C. sour cream
1/4 C. dry white wine (optional)
1/2 C. minced sweet onion
1/4 C. roasted red pepper, finely chopped
10 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/4 C. chopped fresh Italian parsley
1/2 C. finely chopped pecans or walnuts
salt and pepper, to taste

.Instructions.
1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, and wine until fluffy.

2. Add the swiss and cheddar cheeses, onion, roasted pepper, half the bacon, half of the nuts, salt, pepper, bacon, nuts and chopped parsley. Beat between each addition.

Halloween flayed man recipe - Recipes

This is a super simple and you can vary it to fix you or your guests easily.

.Ingredients.
1 art shop mask or simple Halloween mask
1 lb. lunch meat, your choice
2 hard boiled egg yolks
2 slices pimento-stuffed green olive
1 recipe prepared "Triple Cheese CheeseBall" (below), unshaped

.Instructions.
1. In the bottom of either a face mold from an art store or a plain plastic face mask from a Halloween costume, place a layer of plastic wrap. This creates a protective layer between the meat and what may not be a food-safe product.

2. Into the plastic-covered interior of the mold, layer your lunch-meat. Be sure to use quite small pieces, as your guests will need to get through the meat layer in order to get to the cheese underneath.

3. Press your prepared, unshaped cheese ball mix into the mold. Press firmly to maintain a "face" shape.

4. Cover and refrigerate until firm, at least 6 hours.

5. Un-mold onto a serving platter. Depending on the size/shape of your face (and its eye sockets), you may be able to add egg yolk eyes with olive irises, half-egg yolks, or any other combination of ingredients. Play with it until you get a look that you like.

6. Surround face on place with veggies and/or crackers.

.Tips.
* Feel free to use whatever cheese ball recipe you prefer. This is so flexible, any one would work!
* Be sure to have your mask first and make enough cheeseball mixture accordingly.
* Buy meat as thinly sliced as possible and you can use whatever lunch meat you like-- turkey, ham, corned beef, chicken, prosciutto, salami - the possibilities are endless! Its a basic recipe that you can suit to your needs effortlessly.

.Three Cheese CheeseBall.

This recipe makes two baseball-sized balls, enough to feed 15-20 people.

.Ingredients.
2 C. finely shredded swiss cheese, room temperature
2 C. finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese, room temperature
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 C. sour cream
1/4 C. dry white wine (optional)
1/2 C. minced sweet onion
1/4 C. roasted red pepper, finely chopped
10 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/4 C. chopped fresh Italian parsley
1/2 C. finely chopped pecans or walnuts
salt and pepper, to taste

.Instructions.
1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, and wine until fluffy.

2. Add the swiss and cheddar cheeses, onion, roasted pepper, half the bacon, half of the nuts, and salt and pepper to taste. Beat between each addition.

4. Shape into two balls (or whatever shape you've chosen for your recipe).

5. In a small mixing bowl, mix the rest of the bacon and nuts, along with the chopped parsley.

6. Roll balls in nut mixture.

7. Wrap tightly and chill until firm and flavors have mixed, at least four hours. Overnight is better.

8. Let soften slightly before serving.

.Tips.
* For the "flayed face" recipe above, you'll want to mix all of the nuts, bacon, and parsley in with the cheese, leaving nothing to roll the cheese ball in.
