Servings: 4 to 6


2 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 package onion soup mix
2 eggs
3/4 cup breadcrumbs or oatmeal
1/2 cup beef broth or water
2 medium onions
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup ketchup


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Small-dice one of the onions and set aside.
Cut second onion into rings to use as the zombie’s eyes and cut large-diced pieces for zombie teeth. Reserve for decoration.
In a large bowl lightly beat eggs.
Add garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, onion soup mix, broth, Worcestershire, small-diced onion, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper.
Mix well. Add ground beef and stir to combine.
Lightly grease a large baking dish with vegetable spray. Place meatloaf in center, and shape into a skull shape, creating indentations for the eyes, nose and mouth. To keep mixture from sticking to your hands, run them under water before smoothing out the shape.
Place onion rings in the eye sockets, and use some larger diced onion for teeth.
Cover meatloaf and cook for 45 minutes.
Remove cover and cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until meatloaf is brown and the internal temperature in the thickest part reaches 165 degrees.
Using a spatula, spread ketchup over the surface of the meatloaf.

“The whole family will enjoy this spooky meatloaf on Halloween or any night of the week.” – Chef Rose
