Halloween Mini Meatloaves (AIP/Paleo) are a fun way to celebrate – and get more veggies in you, too! Kids can think of them as Halloween “hamburgers.”Jump to Recipe
My whole life, I have been a holiday person. I love to celebrate! I especially love to celebrate the holidays that happen in the colder months. There’s just something so cozy about it.
Halloween conjures memories of school costume parades, shooshing through deep leaves on the sidewalk, cold nights trick-or-treating, and sometimes, our first snow of the season.
Some things never change. I’m a kid at heart when it comes to holidays, and I love playing with my food! I can go overboard sometimes… (See what I did last year. Ahem.)
These are much easier to do than my offering last year. You will need these jack-o’-lantern silicone molds. Cook the meatloaves right in these molds. Then pipe the faces with pumpkin purée! You don’t really need cake decorating equipment for that. Just put the purée in a zip-top bag, cut the very corner off, and squeeze the purée through that hole, which is what I’ve done here.
If you are pressed for time, you can make these mostly ahead of time. (This might be a good idea anyway if you have children that you need to dress for trick-or-treating – while you are making dinner.) Press the meat mixture into the molds, cover and refrigerate. Just be sure to bring them to room temperature before baking.
I wish for you to find your inner child this fall, and as always, I wish you deep healing! 🍂 🎃 🍂

I think it’s pretty crappy this site doesn’t allow printing. I can’t see my phone to keep referring to it for the recipe. Why can’t we print it?
Go to the recipe. There is a print button there.
I did! It says the site doesn’t allow it! So sad! I’m too old to love reading it off my phone! I made these tonight! Very good! I love the idea of the pumpkin in it! Thanks for all your supportive information! I’m on week 2 of AIP! Hashimotos/hypothyroidism.
