Here's a chilling spin on a classic comfort food. Serve our Mummy Meatloaf and a side of yummy veggies to fill up your little tricksters!
Meatloaf from your favorite recipe (about 2 pounds)
White cheddar cheese or American cheese
1. Make your favorite meatloaf recipe. Shape the meatloaf to resemble a mummy's body with crossed arms. Bake the loaf until it's cooked through.
2. Let it rest about 3 minutes, then lay 1-inch-wide strips of American cheese across the body as shown, leaving a narrow space on the head for the olive slice eyes. Trim any overhanging cheese with scissors and return the mummy to the still-warm oven to slightly melt the cheese, about 1 minute.
