Meatloaf Cupcakes

Serves: 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes

FOR THE MEATLOAF CUPCAKES:
1 ½ lbs    Ground beef
1                Egg, bean
1 clove     Garlic, chopped
½ cup      Bread crumbs
2 T            Worcestershire sauce
¾ cup      Chili sauce (you can use ketchup too)
½ cup      Onions, finely chopped
½ cup      Carrots, finely chopped
½ cup      Mushrooms, finely chopped
½ cup      Red pepper, finely chopped
½ cup      Canned fried onion strips

FOR THE MASHED POTATO FROSTING
1 lb            Russet potatoes peeled and cubed
½ cup       Milk
3 T.           Sour cream
2 T            Butter

Cooking Instructions

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Place your peeled cubed potatoes in large pot of cold water over high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until fork tender (about 8-10 minutes after water boils depending on the size of your cubes).

In a large bowl combine ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, chili sauce, onions, carrots, mushrooms, red pepper, fried onions and S&P. Mix together with your hands until combined. Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray. Mold your meatloaf mixture into cupcake sized balls and place in muffin pan. You’ll get about 8-10 cupcakes. Place in oven and cook at 375 for about 25-30 minutes.

Drain your potatoes and return to pan. Pour in your milk, sour cream and butter, and season with S&P. Using a hand mixer whip your potatoes until smooth and set aside to cool a bit. Take a large plastic Ziploc bag (or a pastry bag if you have one) and cut a small hole in the bottom corner. Spoon your mashed potatoes into the bag then pipe out the potato on top of the meatloaves to look like frosting on a cupcake. Serve ‘em up hot, who doesn’t love cupcakes? Especially for dinner!

Meaty Morsel: Decorate the tops of your cupcakes with BBQ sauce, ketchup, mustard, cheese, shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, anything you or your kids can think of. Let them have fun with this, they’ll have more fun eating it!
