Ingredients

Topping:

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Add milk, bread, and oatmeal. Stir in carrots, onions, cheese, herbs, and seasonings. Add beef and sausage and mix well. In a shallow baking dish, shape beef mixture into the shape of a body. Round ball for head, oval shape for body, mounding up for tummy. Shape arms and place next to body. Shape legs and place next to each other, not apart. Smooth meatloaf so the "seams" are not apparent. Bake for 45 minutes, until meat is cooked through.

While baking combine topping ingredients. Cook spaghetti noodles, according to package directions, rinse and set aside.

After 45 minutes, spoon half of the topping over the meatloaf. Return to the oven and continue baking for an additional 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes.

Put spaghetti noodles on tray, carefully place meatloaf on top of spaghetti noodles. Pour remaining sauce on top of noodles.

To serve, place a knife in the "heart" of the meatloaf and be ready for everyone to "cut-up!"
