Seinfeld is getting an official cookbook!

The iconic comedy will release its first recipe book filled with famous dishes from the beloved '90s series, as well as meals inspired by the characters and memorable moments over its nine-season run. Seinfeld: The Official Cookbook, which will be available Oct. 11, features more than 60 recipes that test every cook's skill level and Seinfeld knowledge.

From easy to not-so-easy recipes, the Seinfeld cookbook by Julie Tremaine by Brendan Kirby includes George's Jerk Store Shrimp and Elaine's Mulligatawny Soup to George's Bedroom Pastrami Sandwich and Rusty's Beef-a-reeno, among others.

To get a taste of what you can expect from the cookbook, ET exclusively debuts the official recipe for one of the show's most iconic dishes celebrating its most famous "holiday": Festivus Meatloaf.

Check out the (surprisingly) simple recipe below.

A meatloaf for the rest of us! There will be NO airing of grievances when it comes to this masterpiece. In fact, you’ll be too stuffed to even THINK about competing in the feats of strength.
