“For those familiar with the Monster Toes made from the cocktail franks (a la Monster Toes (For Halloween)), you know what's going on here. A wonderful treat for Halloween, these take your usual food and switch it up with a creepy presentation! While I enjoy the cocktail frank version, as well, I often host a Halloween brunch, so it made sense to switch it up to a breakfast version! I have successfully used the vegetarian sausage links in this recipe (as pictured).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Prepare the sausage according to package directions.
  3. Meanwhile, cut each flour tortilla into 10 thin strips.
  4. Halve the sausage links when they are done cooking.
  5. Leaving the rounded edge of the sausage link visible, begin wrapping about 1/3 of the way down from this edge with a tortilla strip. Wrap "messily," not all on top of itself, so that it looks like a mummy bandage.
  6. Pin the tortilla strip in place using a toothpick through the tortilla and sausage.
  7. Bake about 5 minutes.
  8. Remove "toes" from oven and immediately stick an almond into the top of the rounded edge of the sausage link, as though it was a creepy, broken toenail.
  9. Enjoy! They are good plain or with some maple syrup for dipping!
