Halloween cannot be complete without a real monster recipe given to you by a real friendly monster.
At Gothic Bite Magazine, we are a few that enjoys monster food and so here is my Ghoulash recipe.
When watching Hotel Transylvania, I fell in love with the display of food they showed. Original and appetizing. When Hotel Transylvania – The Series came out, I paid attention to the food because they finally decided to create a restaurant for the hotel which makes sense.
When I looked at the food, made by Quasimodo, I thought he was a worthy chef and the originality in their food’s name and description, quite yummy. So, without further wait, here is the recipe for Quasimodo’s famous Ghoulash that makes Aunt Lydia in such a good mood!

Louisiana Cookin’ profoundly inspires this recipe. Because I live in Canada, we had to make some adjustments so we could make the recipe. Example, we do not have American cheese or Andouille sausages. Therefore, we needed to improvise. However, I do suggest to try both recipes and see the one you prefer!
This Cajun Mac & Cheese is a beloved recipe among family and friends and with the green food coloring, it makes it even more special! Worthy of Aunt Lydia’s standards!
Enjoy and to all, Spooky Halloween!
