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!
