  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 2 slices  Whole Wheat Bread Broken Into Small Pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons  Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Grated Onion
  • 1 clove  Garlic Finely Minced
  • 1/4 cups  Good Quality BBQ Sauce
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 pound  Ground Beef 80% Lean
  • Garlic Salt to taste

Black Pepper To TasteFOR THE SAUCE/BLOOD:

  • 1/2 cup Prepared Ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon Mustard 
  • 2 Tablespoons  Brown Sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
  • In large bowl, soak milk and bread while gathering other ingredients. Once bread is mostly soggy, add in remaining meat loaf ingredients. Stir to combine thoroughly.
  • Divide mixture into eight equal balls. Roll each ball of meat into an oval shape and place on lightly greased baking dish to flatten the bottom. Repeat with remaining balls of meat.
  • Using a toothpick or skewer, score the meat down the center lengthwise to create the look of a brain.
  • Stir together all ingredients for the sauce/blood. Spoon approximately 1 tablespoon of sauce over each brain and spread.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked thoroughly. (You may have to re-score your brains down the center to make them look like brains again.) Serve hot.
