Halloween Halfling Meatloaf

Recipe by  

"This is a great tasting and scary meatloaf. Our guests got a big kick out of it. I prefer to bake my meatloaf on a slotted broiler pan to let the grease drip off. You can use spicy sausage but I prefer a mild sausage."

Directions

  1. 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.

For meatloaf, it's very moist, which was great. With a tiny bit of worchestershire sauce it didn't even need the ketchup (vital since we have a little one who hates condiments). Very simple to make, cute idea for a Halloween meal.

I made this for a Halloween party at work. It was a hit! Very moist with just enough of a "kick" from the cajun seasoning. I used a few pieces of cooked spaghetti surrounding the knife in the belly with some ketchup (blood)!

This was really good tasting. I added some diced tomatoes (personal preference in meatloaf). Kids thought it was so cool, and all we have left is half of the face.
