Groundhog Meatloaf

WriteChic Family Favorite: Groundhog Meatloaf

You know, I could have brought you video of Punxsutawney Phil, but I love you so much better than that.

Here’s a one of our family’s favorites.  Groundhog Meatloaf.

Just whip together your own recipe, scream for the kids, let them do the dirty work of shaping the beast.  Garlic cloves, almonds, or onion bits all make for good eyes and/or teeth.


Okay, by popular request…tonight’s supper!  Ta-da…..

  1. That may just be one of the coolest ‘holiday’ traditions around!!
    You know you have to show an ‘after’ picture – right?

  2. OH GOD!!! For a second I’d thought you skinned a frog or something…. hahhaha….

    awesome… question, though… when you make that first cut… do you statr headside or rumpside?

    here’s hoping for some Spring….

  3. OK, it’s been awhile since I’ve commented, but I must say that this is creative. I’m not a meat loaf fan, but I hope the meat wasn’t groundhog.

    I’m just kidding, I know it wasn’t. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

  4. Cookie, uncooked looks so much better than cooked. Cooked looks like sun baked road kill. However, tonight we’ll be attempting an upright groundhog meatloaf.

    Pictures to come…pinky promise.

  5. Tim! Happy to Entertain! I’ve got to get you on my blog roll so I remember to view more frequently. I always love what you write.

  6. HAHAHAH!!!! rump side, ey… hahaha… how macabre….

  7. Yum..ground hog! I used to make heart shaped meatloaf once in a while. Since I make mine with tomato sauce on top it really looked kind gruesomely genuine. The kids loved it, which probably doesn’t speak well of my child rearing skills.
