Here's what I am serving up on Halloween night! Halloween Ghoulish Meatloaf Italian Style!
Here is one the kids will love. Getting them to eat meat sometimes as a child isn't easy. This is a fun way to prepare meatloaf especially around Halloween. Try the recipe in individual cupcake tins.
Fun to make and delicious to eat. Italian style of course!
Italian Parmesan Style Meatloaf
1 1/2 pounds ground beef or ground turkey
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup dry Italian style flavored bread crumbs
2 pieces of Italian bread moistened with water then squeezed out also remove the crust
1/4 cup tomato sauce in a can and 1/4 cup more for the top
1/4 grated parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves of minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 bell peppers sliced in rings and use a sharp knife to cut the teeth
Store bought or homemade tomato sauce
Black or Green olives for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, mix together ground beef or turkey, eggs, bread crumbs, grating cheese and sauce. Add garlic powder, half the diced peppers. Press into a large pie plate to form a round ball or use a cupcake tin for individual ghouls.
Pour sauce over the top. Decorate with pepper rings and use olives for the eyeballs.
Note: I think black olives with red pepper centers would have looked better, I didn't have them.
Bake in the preheated oven approximately 1 hour or until browned and crisp around the edges.
