Happy Happy Happy Halloween!
It's Day #15 of I Like Big Bundts...my month long quest to bring you 30 Bundts in 30 Days. I'm at the halfway point! And today being Halloween, my Bundt decided to put on a costume. A meatloaf costume. Oh yes, you know it would happen. After making over 50 Bundts on this blog, I would lose it and start "experimenting" with the Bundt pan.
A Tender Crumb sent me a crazy-awesome cookbook by Nordic Ware (similar to this one)...included is a full section on Savory Bundts. Oh lordy. Dill-Sauced Salmon Ring, anyone?
I decided to combine a Meatloaf, "Tunnel of Fudge" (the Pillsbury bakeoff winning recipe that helped start the Bundt craze) and Scotch eggs. I made a meatloaf mini Bundt and added a "tunnel" of quail eggs. Whoo hoo! It's Halloween!
Back in April, I went over to JustJenn's house to have dinner with her and her boys. She made DOMO Meatloafs. They are so darn cute! JustJenn also makes Domo cupcakes two ways: fondant and fruit leather. I used her Domo meatloaf recipe for the meatloaf bundt.
Hard-Boiled Quail Eggs with Matcha Salt taught me how to hard boil the quail eggs. They can be somewhat difficult to peel...they are so small!
Hope you have a fun and safe Halloween! I have to warn you about next week's Bundts...I hope I can pull it off. Did I mention to you that I'm doing all the desserts for my friend's wedding next Saturday? It will be a dessert bar with hundreds of cupcakes, cream puffs, brownies and cheesecake bites. I've never done this type of thing before so wish me luck!! :) - mary the food librarian
Really, you going make this? Alrighty then...

Hard-Boiling Quail eggs
I baked my mini bundts for 25-30 minutes. They stuck a bit to my pan, so spray or grease the heck out of your pans...and WASH the heck out of them later. Don't worry co-workers and friends, I triple washed my pan! Top with a ketchup and brown sugar mixture (baked off for a few minutes).
