Mummy Meatloaf

Picture courtesy of Gourmet Mom on the Go. We were in such a rush to devour the mummy, I forgot to take a pic.

Now this dinner was so impressive to my kids. They thought it was the coolest thing ever! The best part was that it was super easy and super tasty. I halved this recipe for our family and it was plenty to feed 2 adults and 3 kids. Yep, you guessed it, yet another great one from Gourmet Mom on the Go.

2 lbs. lean ground beef or turkey
3/4 c. seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 c. ketchup
2 T. Mustard
2 eggs
1 T. grape jelly (weird, but it's awesome, I promise!)
1 C. finely shredded carrots
Garlic salt, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste

Garnish Ingredients:
6-8 lasagna noodles, cooked
ketchup (optional)
2 slices cheese, any kind
2 green or black olives

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Mix all meatloaf ingredients well in a large bowl. Press into a glass bowl (make sure it's ok for the oven) and bake for 60 minutes or until center is done.
When completely cooked, Drain any fat off the meatloaf and turn onto a serving pan. Spread with a thin layer of ketchup, if desired. Cut cheese slices into circles and place on meatloaf as the "eyes".
Cut the cooked lasagna noodles in half then trim the edges so the "scallops" are cut off. Place them randomly across the meatloaf, cutting of extra and using it to fill in spaces.
Add olives for eyes and serve.
