I had a blast putting together the Zombie Meatloaf. It’s spooky and delicious! The best of both worlds. Use your creativity when assembling these guys. Instead of onions, you could use olives for eyes. Instead of bacon, you could use string cheese and create a mummy instead of a zombie. You could even make small, individual meatloafs. The possibilities are endless!
- 1 pound of raw meatloaf per zombie head. You can use your favorite meatloaf recipe or try my Medifast Meatloaf recipe.
- 4 slices of raw bacon (not turkey bacon) per zombie head.
- 1 small onion
- 1/4 cup tomato sauce per zombie head.
Step 1: If you’re using my Medifast Meatloaf recipe, preheat oven to 350 degree, or whatever temperature is required by your meatloaf recipe. Lightly PAM a 9 x 13 glass casserole dish.
Step 2: Using your hands, shape 1 pound of meatloaf into a 1 inch think oval and place into the glass casserole dish. Gently indent the bottom of the oval to resemble a chin.
Step 3: Remove the outside layer of the onion. Cut off the ends of the onion. Stand the onion on one of the ends and cut the onion in half. Peel off the top layer, cut the layer in half and taper the ends to resemble an eyeball. Pick up the onion eyeball, gently squeeze the ends, and press into the meatloaf. Squeezing the ends helps the onion stay in place — just pressing the onion into the meatloaf isn’t as secure.
Step 4: Remove another layer of the onion. Cut the onion in half length-wise, then cut it half length-wise again. Slice the strips into 1/4 inch wide slices to resemble teeth. Gently press the onion teeth into two rows in the meatloaf.
Step 5: Cut the bacon in half. Arrange the bacon slices around the zombie head to resemble flesh. Try not to cover up the eyes and teeth. It’s okay to overlap the bacon slices.
Step 6: Spoon the tomato sauce over the bacon slices.
Step 7: If using my Medifast Meatloaf recipe, cook for 45 minutes, or whatever your meatloaf recipe calls for.
