One night while I was trying to decide what to make for supper it hit me! I have seen pictures and always said that I had to make them so why not now. Meatloaf Cupcakes!
My recipe starts with a basic one pound meatloaf recipe. (Here is my recipe!)
You will also need a cupcake pan (6cups) I had a texas size cupcake pan on hand so mine are bigger in the posted pictures.
Separate the meat into 6 sections.
Spray cupcake pan with non stick spray
Put the meat mixture into each of the cups
Top with ketchup if you want to
Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until fully cooked (mine took a few minutes more)
Take out cool for a few minutes. Set on paper towels to soak up a little grease.
Meanwhile make up a batch of your favorite mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, rutabaga... What ever you prefer! ( I am thinking next time I make these I might just make a mash of potatoes and puree peas for green "frosting".
I made both reg potatoes and sweet potatoes for the batch pictured!
Take your potatoes and scoop, pipe, or spoon it on top to make the "frosting".
*Optional* Add small cut up veggies as the "sprinkles". I used peas and carrots!
My little Guy LOVED his Cupcake.
