Break your bread into small chunks and add it into your bowl. For spices I add in garlic, seasoning salt, and pepper but use what you prefer. Mix it all up then put it into a round cake pan. Try to round the top a bit higher than the sides of the loaf.​ 

Oven Time: Pop That Beastie in to Cook
Place cheese slices where the eyes will go and then it is time to wrap the noodles around your mummy. Cook and butter your lasagna noodles then cut them in half and lie them over the meatloaf like a mummy wrap. Cut the olive in half and put these into the small eye hole spaces. Gummy worms and a gaping mouth can be used for added effect. Boo.

At Halloween folks seem to have a hankering for clanking skeleton bones, zombies, ghouls, and a few other exceptionally gruesome things that just normally would not be allowed into the house. There is just something about Halloween that brings out the gross in folks. It's the perfect time to bake up a little skull cake, coffin meatloaf, or some such other delightful treat.

Halloween is the ideal time to gross out those folks who have fed you some pretty nasty food in the past. Oooh crunchy bones and gushy yummy body parts. Delectable!

So how about some toasty fingers fresh from the oven? Crunchy indeed. Let the kids gnaw on a hand, thigh bone, or foot? Use your imagination and a little decorative garnish to acquire the gruesome characteristics of a genuine munchie crunchie bone snack. Absolutely positively scrumptious. I love Halloween because it brings out the fun factor in folks.
