Today’s the day: Happy Halloween! We’re doing not too much today. Likely dressing up as ourselves and manning the candy bowl. Another crazy night on the Island!
Again this year we made Halloween dinner early, so I could share our fine meal with you!
I was inspired by this meatloaf idea from Pinterest. I used my favorite meatloaf recipe (with fontina, leeks and ground turkey), then shaping it accordingly and adding bacon. We have our turkey loaf every couple of weeks, since it’s so good and not that bad for you. We substitute chia seeds for the breadcrumbs and follow the other instructions. And it’s delicious! If you’re looking for a scary, spooky, healthy Halloween dinner, this is it!
Here it is raw…
Originally I used garlic cloves for the eyes and shallots for the teeth. Unfortunately they blended in quite a bit with the lighter shade of the ground turkey, so I swapped the garlics for olives. It was just for show, but photographs quite well!
If you’re not into turkey meatloaf, perhaps you’d be interested in our pasta dinner from last Halloween.
Enjoy! Have a wonderful Halloween and don’t forget to “fall back” this weekend!
