Oh my goodness this was a fun one, you guys! I’ve partnered with Reynolds as a Reynolds Real Mom to bring you something frightfully good for your dinner table during the month of October. It was a monster hit with my crew, and I think it just might be with yours, too! And by using Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners, you can spend your after dinner time telling ghost stories instead of cleaning up!

halloween recipes: yummy mummy meatloaf

Yummy Mummy Meatloaf

  • 1 small onion
  • 1 small bell pepper (green or red)
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • small handful of basil leaves (optional)
  • 1.5 lb ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Ricotta cheese
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 8 oz fettuccine noodles, uncooked
  • 1 package of mozzarella cheese slices
  • 1 jar pasta sauce of choice

 

Bring water for the noodles to a boil on the stove. Meanwhile, In a food processor, blend onion, bell pepper, garlic and basil leaves until very finely combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the vegetable mixture with ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs, salt, milk Ricotta cheese, and Italian seasoning. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Form the meat mixture into the shape of a loaf, and then place inside a slow cooker already prepared with a Reynolds Slow Cooker liner.
Add the fettuccine noodles to the boiling water, and cook them for just 4 minutes. Pasta should not be fully cooked. Drain the noodles and allow to cool for a minute or two.
Meanwhile, place slices of mozzarella cheese on the meatloaf so that none of the meat is visible.
Then begin placing individual strands of fettuccine on top of the meatloaf, mimicking the look of a mummy. It will look very strange when you are about 25% of the way through, but just trust me and keep going! You can adjust the size of the individual strands depending on the exact look you want. It doesn’t need to look nice and neat…remember, it’s a mummy!
Once satisfied with the look of your mummy meatloaf, turn on the slow cooker to low, place the lid on top, and set the timer for 5 hours. After 4 hours of cooking, spoon about half the jar of pasta sauce around the bottom of the mummymeatloaf.
Just before serving, add some eyes to your mummy (olives, capers, whatever you’ve got on hand that will work!).

    This cracks me up and I thought hmmm I was making Chicken alfredo but now I am thinking of using red sauce. But then again they might not eat it with red stuff coming out of it as I cut it open. Still I have to try.

    Oh my, that is the ugliest and scariest meat loaf I’ve ever seen. But it looks like fun. Thanks for sharing!
