Sinister Severed Head-Loaf Recipe

Sinister Severed Head-Loaf Recipe
If you’re planning to construct an edible body at your annual Halloween BOO-ffet, most of the components can be made ahead. Every body needs a head, so the following Sinister Severed Head-Loaf which freezes well and is delicious, is a good place to start. Even if you’re not planning to serve a whole body, this head can be kept warm in a chafing dish and served with red barbecue sauce (blood).

While it's creepy as a head on your dead body, this meatloaf is moist and juicy and you'll want to make in a loaf pan year round (minus the teeth and eyes, of course). It makes a large meatloaf, so if you’re just serving it for a regular meal, you can make it into two meat loaves and freeze one for another day.

  10. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until cooked through and an instant read thermometer registers 140°.
