Don't be afraid to let these rambunctious little rats into your kitchen! Individual meatloaf portions fashion these yummy little critters that are sure to spark conversation.

Ingredients

1
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/2
lb bulk Italian pork sausage
1/2
cup Progresso™ Italian style bread crumbs
1/2
cup chopped onion
1/2
cup milk
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
1
egg, beaten
2
cups chunky tomato pasta sauce
Green olive slices, sweet peas (heated), sliced ripe olives, shoestring potato pieces, sliced almonds and curly fries

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix beef, sausage, bread crumbs, onion, milk, salt, cream cheese and egg. Divide into 6 equal portions; shape into 4-inch oval loaves. Pinch 1 end of each oval to a point for rat’s face. Place in ungreased 13x9-inch glass baking dish. Gently pour pasta sauce over and around loaves.
  • 2 Bake about 40 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in center of loaf reads 160°F.
  • 3 Garnish with green olives and peas for eyes, sliced ripe olive for a nose, shoestring potato pieces for whiskers, sliced almonds for teeth and curly fries for tails.
Tips  

If you don't have Italian sausage, use ground beef, and add Italian seasoning to the meat mixture.

In place of the shoestring potatoes, use pieces of broken spaghetti noodles for the whiskers. Make sure they are covered by the sauce so they don't dry out during baking.
