I got this recipe out of Family Fun Magazine. Theirs turned out MUCH nicer than mine. You’re supposed to use black olives for the eyes and I didn’t have any. My meatloaf ended up dry because I cooked it on the cooling rack so the grease wouldn’t be pulling the mummy apart. It didn’t help, he still lost his shape. Not sure what to do differently. By using the green olives for the eyes, I found that I really like green olives with my meatloaf. 🙂
- Meatloaf from your favorite recipe (ours used about 2 pounds of meat)
- White American cheese
- Olive slices
- Make your favorite meatloaf recipe and shape the loaf to resemble a mummy’s body with crossed arms. Bake the loaf until it’s cooked through.
- Let it rest about 3 minutes, then lay 1-inch-wide strips of American cheese across the body as shown, leaving a narrow space on the head for the olive slice eyes. Trim any overhanging cheese with scissors and return the mummy to the still-warm oven to slightly melt the cheese, about 1 minute.
