Allergies: gluten, wheat, dairy, tomatoes, eggs, onion, nuts.


3 to 4 tablespoons spicy barbecue sauce

5 almonds

1 tablespoon bread crumbs

2 tablespoons milk

750 grams ground meat

1 large egg



3 tablespoons tomato ketchup

1 onion

1 tablespoon parsley

3 boiled eggs


Soak the bread crumbs in the milk. Chop the onion and the parsley. Peel the 3 boiled eggs.

In a bowl add an egg, tomato ketchup, onion, parsley and the milk with bread crumbs to the ground meat. Season with salt and pepper. Knead the meat so it’s all well-seasoned.

Make a small layer of ground meat in a cake mold. Place the boiled eggs on the ground meat. Cover with more ground meat, the eggs need to be hidden.

Add extra ground meat on one side. Shape into 5 fingers. Place almonds on each finger.

Bake in a preheated 180°C/350°F oven for 50 minutes. Drain the fat from the meatloaf. Let it rest for 10 minutes.

Place on a board. Drip with the spicy barbecue sauce on the side of the arm, make it look like blood.

Serve and enjoy!


  • Enough for 3 to 4 persons as a side dish for dinner.
  • Tomato ketchup can also serve as blood instead of barbecue sauce.
