Who doesn’t love a good grilled cheese sandwich? I sure do! If you don’t, I call that a whole bunch of hocus-pocus.
Ever since I was a child, a grilled cheese sandwich was a sign up motherly affection and the epitome of true home comfort food.
This Halloween, I’m going to kick it up a notch and a roll up these Oozing Grilled Witch Fingers filled with melted veggie cheese. You can’t go wrong with Maple Bacon Jam to dip these grilled cheese roll-ups.
As delicious as my homemade bacon jam is, it sure is not something that looks pretty! It seemed like the spookiest way to add something that looks like the ends of a rotting witches finger without tasting like death. Am I right or am I right?
I think the creepiest part of this recipe is the pale, white witch’s nail that I attached to each grilled cheese roll-up with some bacon jam. Of course, since I could not use a real nail, I used raw sliced almonds that I picked up at the store. For an added effect, you can use a whole raw almond (this will make it look like a brown and bruised nail).
Would you serve this creepy Oozing Grilled Witch Fingers appetizer at your Halloween party? Let me know your spooktacular ideas and comments below!

Make a batch of Maple Bacon Jam. Set aside to cool.
Lay a long piece of plastic wrap on the counter. Place a slice of bread on the left side of the plastic wrap. Cover with the piece on the right. If you have a rolling pin, roll over the bread until it’s flat. If you have a mallet, lightly whack the bread until it’s flat. Repeat with all 10 slices. Cut the ends off the bread. Discard or save for later. Lightly butter each slice. Set aside.
Cut 5 veggie cheese slices in half. Place each piece on a slice of bread leaving a space to the right side of the bread. Do not cover that part with cheese.
Lightly grease a pan with 1 tbsp of butter. Grill each slice until the cheese melts. Remove from heat.
Add a tad of Maple Bacon Jam onto the part of each slice with no cheese. Roll up each slice tightly to cause the oozing effect. Dab a little Maple Bacon Jam onto each sliced almond and place at the tip of each grilled cheese to resemble a witch’s nail.
Arrange witches fingers in the shape of two hands with Maple Bacon Jam in the middle to dip.
