Feet of Meat

Yield

Makes 8 to 10 servings

Ingredients

2-1/2 pounds ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup bread crumbs or oatmeal
1/2 cup milk or water
1 egg
1 envelope (1 ounce) dry onion soup mix
8 Brazil nuts or almonds
2 tablespoons barbecue sauce or ketchup

Preparation

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Tip

When shaping feet, form "ankles" that have been "cut off" and fill with dripping ketchup before serving for an especially gruesome effect!
