Meatloaf Cupcakes

Who said you couldn't have cupcakes for dinner? 

meatloaf recipe tweaked from my blessed life
Awhile back I came across this pin-- it was posted as a kid friendly meal even for the pickiest eaters. I planned on giving this a try for when my nephew comes over (still will) but meatloaf sounded so good tonight, I decided to whip it up. Turned out pretty cute if I say so myself. 

Here's how my I made my meatloaf:

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 milk
  • 1 c shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 c oats
  • 3/4 c chopped red onion
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ketchup, dijion mustard, and brown sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F, grease muffin pan
  2. Mix together ground turkey, egg, milk, cheese, oats, onion, oregano, garlic powder, and salt.
  3. Divide mixture into muffin pan. Mix ketchup, dijion mustard, and brown sugar; glaze over each mini meatloaf. Bake for 1 hour or until the meat is thoroughly cooked. 
Time for the icing: Mashed Potatoes! Confession, I cheated on this part and whipped up some instant mashed potatoes. What ever kind you decide to make, take your mashed potatoes and put them in an icing bag (or a zip lock works just as well). Swirl over your mini meatloaves and garnish with oregano. TA-DA CUPCAKES FOR DINNER =)

  3. I know! I'm hoping this little cupcake trick might scam my nephew into actually trying meatloaf! Is yours meatloaf too or something different?

  4. These look SOOO good!!! Thanks for following me, I'm following you back!
