Hump Day Snack: Mummy Meatloaf

By: Amanda Marsteller

Halloween's lurking just around the corner, so if you've already overdosed on your monthly quota of candy corn and need something savory to take the edge off, try a yummy mummy meatloaf on for size. It's just as simple as baking up your go-to meatloaf recipe and wrapping the whole lot in a tangle of cooked wide pasta like pappardelle. Add some mozzarella and kalamata olive eyeballs for a finishing touch, and you've got a mummified main to counter those king-sized candy bars you just ate. Maybe even go a little ghoulish and serve it with a side of mashed potato ghosts, appropriately whipped into spectral mounds.
