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:
