Hand Sandwich and Linguini
with Eye Balls


Hand Sandwich

Here are two of my favorite Halloween recipes for lunch and dinner. The first is a deliciously tender Hand Sandwich. It’s a simple recipe that is great for lunchtime.

Try to use the freshest hand you can find. I prefer the left hand because it’s not used as much as the right. The right hand tends to be a little chewy. Be careful of the bones when eating this sandwich. Just serve the sandwich with a finger bowl.

This Hand Sandwich is just as good grilled. Enjoy!


  • 1 fresh hand, preferably the left
  • Sandwich bread or buns, (non-human)
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Mayonnaise
  • Pickles
  • American cheese


  • Place the Mayo on the bread
  • Add the lettuce, tomato and pickle
  • Slap on the hand
  • Top with cheese and enjoy

    Serves 1 person


    Linguini with Eyeballs

    My second recipe is great for dinner. Who doesn’t love Linguini and Eyeballs. I remember when I was growing up it was always a favorite around our house. There’s nothing better than that welcoming look you get when that plate is placed in front of you. It’s the look of love.

    These little morsels are great by themselves or with the pasta of your choice. Serve them as appetizers or as a delicious meal and don’t forget the bread and wine. Here’s looking at you! Enjoy!


  • 1 pound of linguini
  • 12 fresh eyeballs
  • Your favorite spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup of fresh grated Parmesan cheese


  • In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until dente. Around 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime heat the sauce in a medium size pot.
  • Add the eyeballs and let simmer for at least 1 hour.
  • Drain and plate the pasta.
  • Top with the eyeball sauce.
  • Serve with the Parmesan cheese.

    Serves 4 people

    NOTE: Do not make the recipes above. It is just a Halloween joke. Unless your a Zombie then be my guest. Enjoy!

    "Have a Safe and Happy Halloween Everyone!"
