Halloween Halfling Meatloaf - TastyPlanner.com
This is a great tasting and scary meatloaf. Our guests got a big kick out of it. I prefer to bake my meatload on a slotted broiler pan to let the grease drip off. You can use spicy sausage but I prefer a mild sausage.
Recipe Source: http://allrecipes.com/recip...
2 lbs ground beef chuck
1 lb bulk pork sausage
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup crushed saltine crackers
2 eggs, beated
3 tbsp Cajun seasoning
1 tbsp corn kernels
2 pickle slices
3 black olives, halved
2 small sliced of green bell pepper
2 cup ketchup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Mix together the ground beef, sausage, onion, saltine cracker crumbs, beaten eggs, and cajun seasoning in a bowl until well combined. In a large baking dish, form the meat loaf mixture into a Halfling shape, with a large head, 2 stubby legs, and 2 upraised arms.
3. Bake in the preheated oven until the meatloaf is no longer pink inside and just starting to turn brown, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (70 degrees C).
4. To decorate the meatloaf’s head, pick out about 14 corn kernels, and arrange them into teeth. Place 1 small green pepper slice on each side of the creature’s head for ears; place two pickle slices on the face for eyes, then place 2 black olive halves, cut sides down, in the pickle slices to finish the eyes. One more olive half forms the nose. Surround the monster with a background of ketchup “blood,” and bake until browned, about 10 more minutes.
5. Let the meatloaf rest for 10 minutes before serving. Just before serving, stick a paring knife in the meatloaf’s body, and decorate it with a little ketchup blood.
