This is such a fun Halloween meat loaf recipe, that I found a few years back, and the kids loved it! It tastes great and looks gross! It might be fun to make for dinner one night, just for the fun of it!


~2-1/2pounds ground beef
~1clove garlic, minced
~1/2cup bread crumbs or oatmeal
~1/2cup milk or water
~1envelope (1 ounce) dry onion soup mix
~8 Brazil nuts or almonds
~2 tablespoons barbecue sauce or ketchup


1.Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine ground beef, garlic, bread crumbs, milk, egg and onion soup mix in large bowl; stir until well blended. Reserve 1 cup meat mixture.

2.Divide remaining meat mixture in half; shape each half into 7X4-inch oval. Place ovals on rimmed baking sheet. Divide reserved 1 cup meat mixture into 8 balls; place 4 balls at end of each oval for toes. Press 1 nut into each toe for toenails. Brush meat loaves with barbecue sauce; bake 1-1/2 hours or until meat thermometer registers 160°F.

Tip: When shaping feet, form "ankles" that have been "cut off" and fill with dripping ketchup or bar-b-q sauce before serving for an especially gruesome effect!


How cool is this Halloween cake? Wouldn't this be a fun show-stopper to your dessert table? I might need to work on my cake decorating skills.... I'm feeling inspired!


This was a favorite recipe of the kids from Halloweens past..... I can't tell you how many times I was asked for this recipie! It was a favorite for little boys birthday parties! I don't remember where it came from, but I've kept this recipie for years. I think it's a great Halloween party recipie, the kids are gonna love it!

(*If you don't want to use cheese, and want a sweet treat, melt (green colored) chocolate according to package instructions, and dip. Let cool, and they'e ready to eat or wrap up as party favors!)

  • 8 oz. Jar of Cheez-Whiz
  • 4 drops of green food coloring
  • 3 dozen pretzel sticks
  1. Melt cheese in microwave according to package instructions.
  2. Allow cheese to cool slightly, for about 5 minutes.
  3. Carefully stir in green food coloring, to get the right shade of "booger green" that you want.
  4. To form the boogers: dip and twist the tip of each pretzel into the cheese, lift out, wait about 15-20 seconds and dip again. Set pretzels on wax paper to cool. Trust me! Your little goblins will gobble 'em up!
