No Photo


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced onions
  • 1 (26 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • Olives, corn kernels and pimentos (garnish)


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Using clean hands, mix together all ingredients, except for the spaghetti sauce and garnishes, in a large bowl.
  3. To form the corpse: In an ungreased baking pan, sculpt the meat mixture into a body. (Generally, bodies have a single head, torso, 2 legs and 2 arms, but yours can have as many or as few as you like.)
  4. Using olives for eyes, corn for teeth and pimentos for a tongue, decorate your loaf. Feel free to try other vegetables, too.
  5. Pour spaghetti sauce around the corpse and bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  6. Right before serving, stick a dagger (butter knife) into the "heart" of the corpse.
