Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time45 mins
Total Time1 hr
- 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 small onion , chopped, sautéed with a little olive oil.
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 piece of whole wheat bread , broken up into little pieces
- 1/8 cup ketchup
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- (for the top, 1/3 cup ketchup, 1 teaspoon mustard, 1 teaspoon brown sugar, 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce)
- Mashed Potato “Buttercream”
- 3 large red potatoes
- 1/2-3/4 cup milk
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tablespoons butter
Pre-heat oven 350.
Mix all ingredients by hand, do not over mix.
Roll meatloaf into giant meatballs, and try to form into the cupcake liners, remember they shrink!
Baste the top with the ketchup mixture.
Bake for 30-45 minutes.
Peel and chop the potatoes and bring to a boil in a large pot.
Once the potatoes are done add them to your stand mixer bowl along with the butter, and salt.
Mix at medium speed until potatoes are broken up, then slowly add the milk.
Add more milk if needed for desired consistency.
Once potatoes are semi-cooled add them to a piping bag with tip of your choice, and top the meatloaf cupcakes.
optional: we like to stuff ours with little mozzarella balls or cubes of cheddar! :)
