Who doesn’t love cupcakes? Especially for dinner! Make meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potato "frosting" - delicious family recipe.
FOR THE MEATLOAF CUPCAKES
1 ½ pounds Ground beef
1 Egg, beaten
1 clove Garlic, chopped
½ cup Bread crumbs
2 Tablespoon 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 pound Russet potatoes peeled and cubed
½ cup Milk
3 Tablespoon Sour cream
2 Tablespoon Butter
Preheat your oven to 375F (190C) 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 375F 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.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!
