Halloween Meatloaf before cremation 

One scary meal, fit for halloween.

Ingredients:

Meatloaf:

  • 1 kg (2 lb.) ground beef
  • 1 onion, grated, 
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs 
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 sprig of rosemary, leaves chopped
  • salt & pepper

Mummification:

  • ketchup mixed with hot hot sauce
  • 2 yellow tomatoes (eyes)
  • blanched almonds
  • 1 package bacon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃).

Mix the meats with the rest of the ingredients. Form a round loaf  with indents for eyes and an open mouth in an ovenproof pan. Place the almonds like teeth in the mouth. Brush the loaf with ketchup mixture. Wrap the bacon around the meatloaf. Use yellow tomatoes for eyes.

Cook the meatloaf in the oven for about 20 minutes. Add about a cup of warm water to the pan, this will later be used for the sauce. Cook for 10-15 minutes more until it reaches a center temperature of about 167℉ (75℃).
