A Week of Halloween Foods

Posted on




(using healthier ingredients to make this fun and better for you at the same time!)

1 lb ground turkey

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 cup Panko or whole wheat breadcrumbs soaked in 1/2 cup low fat milk

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 T. Worcestershire sauce

1 large egg (or just the egg white)

1/4 cup carrot puree

1/4 cup cauliflower puree

1/2 small onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1/3 cup ketchup (plus a little extra for the “blood” on the cut ankle)

a few whole almonds

Instructions:  Note:  This makes one foot.  Since I was only making it for myself I just made one (and even then had plenty of leftovers!) but if you double the recipe, you can make two feet, enough for the whole family! Simply combine all the ingredients (except the almonds) until mixed.  Don’t overmix or you can make the meatloaf tough.  I began by shaping most of the meat into an oval and then working it up at one end so that it was a bit higher than the other, resembling where the foot had been severed at the ankle.  I took a small bit of the meat and formed some small balls and placed them at the other end to be the toes.  Stick an almond into each toe as the toenails.  I used some extra ketchup as a glaze on top of the cut ankle to look like blood.  Bake in a 350 degree F oven for about 45-55 minutes, until golden brown on the outside and thoroughly cooked, to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F on a meat thermometer.
