Supplies You’ll Need for Monster Meatloaf
For most of these options, it’s super handy to have a large bowl for mixing everything together.
Instead of the traditional loaf pans used with meatloaf, you’ll also want to have large baking sheets for shaping and cooking the meat. So grab your cookie sheet, line it with parchment paper, and get to sculpting.
Ingredients for Halloween Meatloaf
Each of these recipes shares its own specific ingredients, but there are a few staple ingredients you’ll need, no matter which one you choose to make.
Some of these ingredients you may already have on hand for when you make your favorite meatloaf recipe, but a few additions really ramp up the spooky factor.
For flavor, Worcestershire sauce is a popular ingredient, as well as parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
And of course, you’ll need some ground beef. Some people like to mix it with ground pork (you can often find this marketed as “meatloaf mix” in your grocery store).
In addition to your meat mixture, you’ll need a few basic items that help to round out the special effects of your Halloween meatloaf, such as:
- Onion pieces – these serve as eye sockets, teeth, and toe nails on some of the designs.
- Ketchup, tomato sauce, or bbq sauce – for a “bloody” look.
- Some black olives – for eyes on some of the smaller designs.
- If you’re making a mummy meatloaf, you’ll need some crescent dough or bacon strips for the “wrap.”
You may want to pair your meatloaf with a side dish of mashed potatoes, which is always a crowd-pleaser.
