Who says you can't play with your food? Have a little fun with boring meatloaf by shaping them like cupcakes! Top with mashed potatoes and a dot of ketchup on top. Gave everyone a laugh when I served it. It could also be a cute April Fool's dinner for the family.

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 16 individual cupcakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lb ground meat (I used beef)
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • pinch of your favorite spices (I use fresh basil, garlic, cumin)
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 egg
  • instant mashed potatoes for "icing
  • ketchup

Steps:

  1. Mix together meat with spices, egg, and bread crumbs.
  2. Form into small balls the size of your palm, and add to muffin tins.
  3. Cook at 375 degrees F for 30 to 45 minutes or until done to your liking.
  4. Whip up some mashed potatoes (not shown here since I made them from scratch).

  6. Place one big dollop of potatoes on top of individual meatballs. You may use a pastry bag if you really want them to look like icing. I used an ice scoop.
  7. Dot the mashed potatoes with a "cherry" of ketchup on top.

Note: I actually froze one tray of six for later use since we were only 3 people and didn't need all those 'cupcakes' at one meal.

I'm going to try this with my 3 yr old grand-daughter who spends the entire day with me from 5:30am > 6pm. She won't eat an evening meal........ She loves fruit . ( and sweets of course ). I may even place them in pretty "frozen" cupcake papers. Wish me luck. :)
