Hideous Human Hands Recipe

Hideous Human Hands Recipe
Since Halloween is the only time of year that you can serve disgusting and scary food, why not feature the following Hideous Human Hands as the main attraction for a family Halloween dinner. They're great paired with Ghostly Potato Puffs and a slimy green vegetable. They are also an essential element if you're having a Halloween BOO-ffet and featuring an edible dead body. Guests or family will delight in pulling off the fingers and devouring them.

Since these hands are simply very tasty meatloaf, you'll want to serve them all year round; no need to shape them into hands when it isn't Halloween; just bake the meat mixture in one large or two standard loaf pans. The loaves freeze beautifully, so you can serve one and freeze the other for a quick dinner when you happen to be too busy to cook.
