Dead Man's Meatloaf

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 egg -- beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup minced onions
26 ounces spaghetti sauce
olives, corn kernels and pimentos garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using clean hands, mix together all ingredients, except for the spaghetti sauce and garnishes, in a large bowl.

To form the corpse: In an ungreased baking pan, sculpt the meat mixture into a body. (Generally, bodies have a single head, torso, 2 legs and 2 arms, but yours can have as many or as few as you like.)

Using olives for eyes, corn for teeth and pimentos for a tongue, decorate your loaf. Feel free to try other vegetables, too.

Pour spaghetti sauce around the corpse and bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Right before serving, stick a dagger (butter knife) into the "heart" of the corpse as a garnish.
