How to Make a Creepy Hand Meatloaf

October 5, 2014

If you're throwing a Halloween party, this meatloaf hand featured on Tastemade should be the main event.  This scary good recipe is easier to make than you might think.  Ground beef is seasoned with bacon, onion, garlic, and parmesan before it's stuffed into a rubber glove.  The glove molds the meat and boiling it sets the meatloaf mixture.  Once cooked, the hand meatloaf is placed on a butter bean and tomato sauce and glazed with a tomato and Worcestershire sauce before going in the oven.  Slices of white cheddar cheese are melted over the top just before serving.  Other gruesome Halloween foods that you can serve with the meatloaf include mummy pizzacandy eyeballs,  graveyard cupcakes, and vampire kiss cocktail, just to name a few.  For a lighter meatloaf recipe, check out our turkey and sweet potato meatloaf.

1 teaspoon onion powder
3 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
1 Large Sweet Potato

In a large bowl, Mix the ground turkey, oats, grated carrot, soy sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, eggs and parsley.  Spray the slow cooker insert with cooking spray.  Shape meat mixture into a loaf and place it inside the slow cooker.  Scrub, peel and cube the sweet potato and place it along the sides.  Turn on your slow cooker on low heat for 6 to 8 hours or high heat for 3 to 4 hours.  You can serve the potatoes on the side or puree them up to make mashed sweet potatoes.
