Halloween Dinner: Bloody Baked Rats!!!

In the spirit of Halloween, I made "Bloody Baked Rats" from Allrecipes:  And OMG!!!  Let me just say they were horribly fabulous!!!

I did use my own meatloaf recipe for the "rats" but used these instructions as a guide for presentation.

Here are the alterations I made to the recipe in the above link:

* Pecan pieces for ears.

* Raisin pieces for eyes.

* Thin asparagus spears for the tails.

* Only made half the amount of "blood" sauce called for in the recipe and that was more than enough.

Everyone agreed this was a fun idea for a Halloween themed dinner!

The cheese "guts" inside were an unexpected surprise.  Hubby suggested adding a few strands of cooked spaghetti to the cheese for the "intestines".

Happy Halloween Everyone!


  1. I love the rats. They are so cute! My husband would get a kick out these.

  2. That is gross and VERY clever all at the same time! I am going to have to try this next year.


    PS - FYI your blog is not updating in my blog roll. I am going to unfollow and refollow and see if that helps.
