Friday Gerald and I went to an adult Halloween Party and my sister-in-law took the kids to our church for their Halloween party. We ate VERY well and the kids convinced my sister-in-law to take them to Pizza Hut.
Saturday, we went to my other sister-in-law's house for dinner. They made ribs and mashed potatoes and I brought cornbread muffins and a chocolate cake. I also brought carrots with ranch dressing and popcorn and she had cheese and crackers. We pretty much ate and drank all day!! Need days like those!
Then came Sunday, Halloween Day. I saw this recipe for mummy meatloaf on the Family Fun website and knew I HAD to make this. It was very good and very cute, but don't leave it in the oven too long or your cheese will melt too much to look like it's suppose to.
Before heading out with your kids for a night of trick-or-treating, put a chilling spin on some classic comfort foods. Serve our Mummy Meatloaf, and your little tricksters won't be able to stop ogling their food! (Or will it be ogling them?)
- Meatloaf from your favorite recipe (ours used about 2 pounds of meat)
- American cheese
- Olive slices
Make your favorite meatloaf recipe and shape the loaf to resemble a mummy's body with crossed arms. Bake the loaf until it's cooked through.
Let it rest about 3 minutes, then lay 1-inch-wide strips of American cheese across the body as shown, leaving a narrow space on the head for the olive slice eyes. Trim any overhanging cheese with scissors and return the mummy to the still-warm oven to slightly melt the cheese, about 1 minute
