Gramma Parks Yummy Meat Loaf Spider with Spider EggsSubmitted by: AAZLADY2
IntroductionI always try to make food fun when I have my grandsons over. Why have a plain meat loaf when you can have one that looks like a giant spider filled with spider eggs and bread stick legs! I always try to make food fun when I have my grandsons over. Why have a plain meat loaf when you can have one that looks like a giant spider filled with spider eggs and bread stick legs!
4 lbs. 90 % lean ground beef
1 c. Almond milk, unsweetened
2 pkgs. Mc Cormick Meat loaf seasoning mix
2 Nature"s Own 100% Whole Wheat Hot dog buns
1 pkg. Pillsbury Original Breadsticks
18.6 pz Muir Glen Italian Herb Pasta Sauce
24 Rosina Homestyle meat balls (frozen)
Can be cut in half, doubled or tripled as needed.
1. Break up hot dog buns in a very large bowl Pour almond milk over the top and let soak until buns soak up most of the milk. Add eggs, seasoning mix and mix well. Add ground beef and work until everything is mixed in. Press meat mixture down into bowl. Dump out into a large baking pan. Using your fist create a concave in the top of the mound. Make large enough to hold the spider eggs (meatballs). Keeping shape of meat loaf rounded. Bake until the loaf has an internal tempture of 160 degrees Fahrenheit; 25-30 minutes per pound.
2. On another large baking sheet drape the "legs" bread sticks over the edge of a heat proof shaper. I used a round baking pan upside down and shaped the bread sticks over the sides. Bake at 375 degrees until the "leg's" begin to brown. Cool until ready to assemble the spider.
3. Simmer "spider eggs" in the pasta sauce.
4. Drain any fat that comes off the "spider"
Place "legs" around the back of the body. Using long toothpicks to hold them in place.
My grandsons decided to use little grapes on toothpicks for the spider eyes. You can use green olives with pimentos or any other eyeball shaped food.
