Halloween Bloody Baked Rats


Halloween Bloody Baked Rats are the latest addition to my Halloween kitchen and while I think they are pretty gross looking, my kids adore them and they actually taste delicious! And let’s face it, Halloween dinners should look disgusting, right?

To make these, combine ground beef, onion, egg, bread crumbs, and meatloaf seasoning and, using your hands, mix well. Scoop out ⅓ cupfuls of the meat mixture and shape it into a meatball around a cube of cheese. Squeeze one end into a point to make the nose and lengthen the body by rolling it between your hands. To make the tail, insert pieces of uncooked spaghetti into the rounded back end of each rat. Mix tomato sauce with sugar and Worcestershire sauce and pour it over the meat rats before baking in the oven. Press peas into the pointy end of the meatball to make eyes and insert carrot ears in the top. 

To make Halloween Bloody Baked Rats, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Halloween Bloody Baked Rats


Heat oven


Preheat the oven to 350 °F.


Combine meat ingredients


Combine 2 pounds of ground beef with ½ a chopped onion, 1 lightly beaten egg, 1 cup of dry bread crumbs and 1 packet of meatloaf seasoning in a large bowl. Using your hands, combine the mixture until well blended.


Shape rats


Scoop out ⅓ cupfuls of the meat mixture at a time and shape them into meatballs around a cube of cheese. Squeeze one end into a point to make a face and roll the back between your hands to lengthen. Place each meat rat into a baking dish, and continue making rats until all of the meat mixture is used. To make the tails, insert pieces of uncooked spaghetti into the back end of the rats.


Make sauce


Mix 3 cans of tomato sauce with 1 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl.




Pour the sauce over the rats in the dish and place a lid or aluminum foil on top. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.


Bake more


Remove the lid from the dish and continue to bake for another 20 - 30 minutes. Baste the rats occasionally with the sauce to glaze them.


Cook peas and carrots


Heat 1 tablespoon of peas and carrot slices for about 15 seconds in a small bowl in the microwave to soften them.


Add eyes and ears


Transfer the rats to a serving plate carefully. Make sure you don’t knock their tails off. Press two peas into each pointy end to make eyes and insert carrot slice ears on top.



Spoon the sauce around the rats on the plate and serve.
