Honey Roast Pumpkin And Feta Rolls
Indulge in seasonal vegetables with this delectable Honey Roasted Pumpkin and Feta Rolls recipe for an autumn feast, complete with earthy yet sweet roasted pumpkin, creamy feta and our golden and lightly sweet Brioche Hot Dog Rolls.
If you cannot get your hands on a pumpkin for this savoury Halloween recipe, then you could use butternut squash or sweet potatoes instead. We would also recommend lightly toasting our Brioche Hot Dog Rolls first before adding in all of the ingredients. It will add a subtle crunch to the dish, but will also hold the ingredients well.
Brioche Mummy Bagels
Not only a tasty savoury Halloween food idea to try out on 31st October, but a fun family-friendly activity to try out, these Brioche Mummy Bagels only require four ingredients and will take up to 20 minutes to make and cook. For this frighteningly delicious dish, take a look at our Instagram post to see how to make it.
Makes 4 Brioche Mummy Bagels:
- Separate 2 St Pierre Brioche Bagels into halves.
- Spread over 200g jar of tomato sauce.
- Cut 250g mozzarella into strips to make bandages.
- Layer the strips on top of each other to create a ‘mummy’ effect.
- Use sliced black olives for eyes and eyebrows.
- Pop under the grill on a high setting until the cheese is just browning and bubbling.
Firecracker Chicken Bagels
If you’re searching for a delightful autumn treat to impress your guests, consider whipping up these Firecracker Chicken Bagels. Spicy chicken nestled within a gently sweet St Pierre Brioche Soft Bagel forms a mouth-watering sweet and spicy pairing. Simple to prepare and perfect for serving at your upcoming Halloween gathering.
To tone down the spice in this savoury Halloween recipe, you could leave out the dried chilli flakes and/or jalapenos.
Sausage Brioche Monster Sandwich
Transform your standard sausage sandwich into something spooky yet magnifique this Halloween with a few tricks plus our delicious St Pierre Sliced Brioche Loaf.
To make this tasty savoury Halloween food idea, simply add cooked sausages to one slice of our Brioche Loaf, then top with triangles of cheese (to look like teeth or fangs of the monster) and a drizzle of ketchup on top). Then top with another slice of Brioche Loaf and hold the sandwich together with some olive eyes on cocktail sticks.
Slow Roast Pork And Apple Sauce Baps
With a touch of sweetness, a hint of savoury, and an abundance of comforting autumnal flavours, these baps combine tenderly roasted pork, luscious apple sauce and our soft Brioche Buns for an indulgent yet comforting Halloween savoury treat.
You could serve these up after a long evening of trick or treating with the family, or even around a fire pit.
Smoky Chipotle Pumpkin Houmous
A simple savoury Halloween snack that could easily be served up during your spooky celebrations. This Smoky Chipotle Pumpkin Houmous combines classic autumn flavours, and is delicious served with brioche on the side for dunking. Here, we’ve served our Brioche Rolls but you could serve any of our brioche range as an accompaniment to this dish.
If you’re looking for a more simple alternative to this homemade houmous, simply buy a pre-made houmous – caramelised onion, red pepper and sweet chilli are suitable flavours for this time of year – and add some suitable toppings like pumpkin seeds or chilli oil.
Halloween Black Bean Burgers
This Halloween, give our St Pierre Brioche Burger Buns a spooky makeover by trying our scrumptious Black Bean Burger recipe.
It features zesty flavours, crowned with a tantalising herby salsa verde – a fantastic dish perfect for Halloween and beyond! To give it an extra Halloween look, we’ve used the top of a chilli and placed it on the lid of the Brioche Burger Bun to make it look like a pumpkin.
Pumpkin Soup With Brioche Bread
Nothing screams autumn and Halloween more than pumpkin soup, and it’s readily available in most supermarkets now.
You could make your own homemade version if you have time, but an easy Halloween savoury food idea is to just buy a pre-made version and heat it up at home, serve in your favourite bowl or mug, and top with a drizzle of cream, along with a few pumpkin seeds and chopped fresh herbs. Elevate this meal by serving brioche bread on the side for something a little more magnifique this Halloween.
Halloween Celebration Ideas
There’s plenty of options to choose from if you are looking to celebrate Halloween. From trick or treating locally to throwing parties for family and friends, spooky decorations to costume parties. Consider traditional pumpkin carving or having a Halloween-themed movie night with friends and family.
