Step 1

Mix together ingredients for meatballs in a bowl.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350F.

Step 3

Grease an 8 hole muffin tin.

Step 4

Use an ice cream scoop to divide out meatball mix and drop into muffin pan.

Step 5

Bake meatballs, for 35 minutes or until inside reaches 160F on an instant read thermometer.

Step 6

Drain meatballs on a cookie rack.

Step 7

Heat marinara sauce and cook spaghetti and rice noodles (separately) according to package directions.

Step 8

Drain pasta, keep spaghetti warm and cool rice noodles in cold water then drain.

Step 9

Slice meatballs in half horizontally to make two pieces, each with a flat surface.

Step 10

Pat rice noodles dry with paper toweling and layer over the top of the meatball, tucking sliced olives in for eyes.

Step 11

It is best to let the meatballs sit still for about 15 minutes so they become more tacky and hold together better.

Step 12

But since they will get cold, microwave them on a microwave-safe plate for a minute, then carefully place a mummy meatball onto a nest of sauced spaghetti and serve.

This was just what I was looking for to make for our Halloween dinner. My daughter insisted on helping and we had it made in no time. My 1 year old son went for the cheese face first, and pushed the olives aside, but he chowed down on the spaghetti like he was afraid someone was going to take his plate. It was a cute idea and tasted great too!
