Gluten Free Halloween...When Zombies Attack!!

Enjoying a Gluten Free Halloween can be frightfully delicious and scarily simple to make.....just be on the look out for gluten free eating zombies!

To create a creepy looking "egg pod," preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a large cookie sheet with tinfoil and place 1 stalk of brussell sprouts (sprouts still attached to the stalk) on the tinfoil lined cookie sheet.  Coat all of the brussell sprouts and stalk evenly with 2- 3 tablespoons of olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground sea salt, 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, and 1 teaspoon of organic garlic powder. Bake your "egg pod" for 25-35 minutes, or until the edges of the brussel sprouts are a crispy golden brown. Serve on a platter lined with large beet leaves and maybe even a few cooked crustaceans (like crawfish) to set the look! (This recipe may contain shellfish) Maybe even add a few dinosaur eggs.....

You might be wondering how to make dinosaur eggs, here's how. My 9 year old nephew loves to make these with me. Hard boil a dozen white eggs. Cool in ice water and remove from water. Lightly crack the eggs all around on a clean surface, like a cutting board. You want to leave the shells on. Place the "crackled eggs" into a food storage bag with gluten free balsamic vinegar (read the label), just enough to cover the eggs. Place bag in fridge for an hour or over night. My nephew loves to bring these peel and eat "dinosaur eggs" with him to school this time of year.
