Halloween FeetLoaf ~ Best Meatloaf Recipe with a Gory Twist

What in the world is Halloween FeetLoaf? Ha! Of course, it’s a fantastic and fun meal for Halloween. In other words, it’s perfect for parties or any time.

My mom makes the BEST meatloaf I’ve ever had. Coincidentally, she uses the Heinz Ketchup recipe! And, it’s pretty easy to make! So, Halloween FeatLoaf uses that recipe. And, makes it a little extra fun. I was so glad when she shared her secret! Because, that meant I could make it too!

Now, you can make it yourself at home. As a result, you need to try this meatloaf for everyday meals. Or, make it for Halloween with this gory twist in presentation: the Halloween FeetLoaf!  Because, your trick-or-treat Halloween party will be complete with this scary main dish!

Again, the recipe below is tried and true but if you have a different recipe for meatloaf, that’ll work too!

To create Halloween FeetLoaf, prepare your meatloaf and shape into two “feet” on a baking pan.  Cut onions for toenails and ankles and then drizzle the piquant sauce (the extra red sauce for top) on top of ankles to make them look severed. It’s delightfully disgusting!!  And, so yummy!
