Meatloaf Mummy
Recipe type: Main dish
Cuisine: American
Halloween is officially here - this utterly terrifying recipe would be a devilishly scary centrepiece to any dinner party/graveyard spread.
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large brown onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 200ml beef stock
  • 250ml ketchup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 800g beef mince
  • 100g soft breadcrumbs
  • 30g parmesan
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 500g puff pastry
  • 2 olives
  • 1 egg
  1. To begin this spooky recipe, preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F. Fry the minced onion until it's turned golden and smells nice. Add the garlic and continue to cook out for a further minute.
  2. Pour in beef stock and ketchup and reduce for a few minutes. Stir in sugar and seasonings and leave to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the breadcrumbs, parmesan and beef mince thoroughly with your hands. Add cooled ketchup mix and eggs and carry on mixing.
  4. Take the puff pastry and roll out to a large rectangle. Cut into strips - these are the bandages for your terrifying mummy! Argh!
  5. Lay the strips on a lined baking tray. Use your hands to shape the mince into a human shape and fold the bandages over, leaving a little bit of the head exposed - stick the olives in this bit for the eyes.
  6. Brush the pastry with egg and bake for 40-50 minutes until cooked through.
