Sunny’s Bloody Beef Fingers

(from castro15’s recipe box)

Categories: Halloween


  • 1 pound 80/20-blend ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 14 small cloves garlic or 7 large cloves garlic sliced in half lengthwise
  • Blood Sauce:
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon spicy honey, warmed so it blends (if you can't find it, just add a shake of hot sauce to regular honey)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


  1. For the fingers: Break up the beef with your fingers in a large bowl, then scatter the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and a few grinds of pepper over the top. Gently mix with your hands and divide in half. Make 6 to 7 fingers from each half. Mold a finger of beef on a skewer, making sure to mold it right over the skewer tip. Repeat with the remaining fingers. Push a slice of garlic into the tip of each finger for a fingernail.

  2. Grill and dip. Heat a griddle on the grill or stovetop to 375 degrees F.

  3. Cook the skewers over direct heat, turning occasionally, until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes total.

  4. For the blood sauce: Stir together the ketchup, honey and vinegar in a bowl. Serve with the fingers as a bloody dip.
