I just found perhaps the most horrifying food of all time: Zombie. Meatloaf.


You can look at this meatloaf in two ways: it either looks like a zombie, or a mummy, and both are pretty spooky for Halloween.

My favorite thing about this recipe is the hilarious Chef John of In addition to the hysterical video down below, you can check out his blog post by clicking here!
