Halloween Bloody Baked Rats

READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, onion, egg, bread crumbs, and meatloaf seasoning. Use your hands to mix until well blended. Measure out 1/3 cupfuls of the meat mixture and mold around a cube o cheese like a meatball. Shape into a poin at one end and lengthen the body a bit by rolling between your hands. Place your "rat" into a shallow baking dish, and continue with the remaining meat. Insert pieces of uncooked spaghetti into the rounded end of the rats to make the tails.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the tomato sauce, sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over the rats in the dish and cover with a lid or aluminum foil.
  • Bake for 45 minute in the preheated oven. Uncover the dish and continue to bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, basting occasionally with the sauce to glaze the rats.
  • While the rats finish baking, heat the peas and carrots in a small bowl in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
  • Carefully transfer the rats to a serving platter so that their delicat tails don't fall off. Press peas into the pointy end to make eyes and insert carrot slices t make ears. Spoon some of the tomato sauce around them and serve.
