Zombie Meatloaf Recipe (& Giveaway) by Bonnie Paulson, author of Falling Apart (Barely Alive Series)



Falling Apart
(Barely Alive #2)
Bonnie R Paulson

Days slip through Paul’s graying fingers. Humanity faces the end. His brother has the virus and is dying, too. 

Paul’s hopes ride on Heather’s genetic code. Her immunity leaves her unchanged and untouchable. What would she see in the zombie he was becoming anyway?

Dominic’s army of infected grows, capturing the south and leaving little alive in its wake. 

While Paul and his friends work on the vaccine, protecting the north becomes protecting the world. Heather is taken hostage and Paul races toward Dominic to save his heart. 

With his time “alive” shortened, Paul must do more than protect the uninfected. He has to get his brother and Heather back to Sandpoint before the zombies find them. Paul needs to survive the upcoming war before he finds himself defecting to the other side and leaving Heather to Dominic’s mercy.

He has three days to get the cure or he might as well find a fire to call home. 

Welcome to the second of three posts I have this week for the Barely Alive series!   Monday - An awesome guest post/character interview with Bonnie and Paul.  Tuesday:  An awesome zombie meatloaf recipe from Bonnie, sure to complete any doomsday themed meal!  And then on Wednesday I will have a review of Mostly Dead, book 3. 
********************


Thank you again, so much for having me! I have a gluten free recipe today… I don’t need gluten free, but sometimes, it’s just plain fun to see what you can substitute, like when Paul substitutes cow for human.

Zombie Meatloaf – Gluten Free

Half-pound cooked bacon (you can decide crispiness)
Two pounds of lean ground beef
Two eggs
One tablespoon dried parsley
One teaspoon Worcestshire sauce
One teaspoon soy sauce
Half cup ketchup (because this is inevitable in any meatloaf)
One tablespoon brown sugar
Half chopped onion

Directions:

Pre-cook bacon and chop into small pieces – not tiny.
Mix all ingredients including bacon into a bowl. Form on a pan – I use a cookie sheet because it gives the juices somewhere to go besides swarming the loaf. Bake at 350 until cooked through. Note: This makes for a denser meatloaf but doesn’t have gluten and will appeal more to that walking undead you call your mother-in-law ;).





About the Author....
Bonnie R. Paulson mixes her science and medical background with reality and possibilities to make even myths seem likely and give every romance the genetic strength to survive. Bonnie has discovered a dark and twisty turn in her writing that she hopes you enjoy as much as she has enjoyed uncovering it. Dirt biking with her family in the Northwest keeps her sane

  1. no real plan other than keep my kids safe and head for rural areas where there would be less zombies.

  2. I have a semi-detailed plan. First since everything will be complete anarchy go to the local rv dealer (there's one in my area) and pick up one. Hit the local drugstore and stock up on medicinal basics. Get kids, boyfriend and self somewhere even farther into the middle of nowhere. From there play it by ear...

    I think that sounds excellent. I have an RV place super close to me, I was thinking I'd just drive a truck, but an RV definitely has its advantages!!

    We can only hope there are less out in the rural areas, right? :)
