Feet of Meat
YIELD Makes 8 to 10 servings
|2‑1/2||pounds ground beef|
|1||clove garlic, minced|
|1/2||cup bread crumbs or oatmeal|
|1/2||cup milk or water|
|1||envelope (1 ounce) dry onion soup mix|
|8||Brazil nuts or almonds|
|2||tablespoons barbecue sauce or ketchup|
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine ground beef, garlic, bread crumbs, milk, egg and onion soup mix in large bowl; stir until well blended. Reserve 1 cup meat mixture.
- Divide remaining meat mixture in half; shape each half into 7X4-inch oval. Place ovals on rimmed baking sheet. Divide reserved 1 cup meat mixture into 8 balls; place 4 balls at end of each oval for toes. Press 1 nut into each toe for toenails. Brush meat loaves with barbecue sauce; bake 1-1/2 hours or until meat thermometer registers 160°F.
When shaping feet, form "ankles" that have been "cut off" and fill with dripping ketchup before serving for an especially gruesome effect!
