This Mini Meatloaf Cupcakes recipe was a hit at our house last night. The whole family LOVES meatloaf . Meatloaf with mashed potatoes is a frequent meal around here. We all love “mini” everything don’t we? Mini Tacos, Mini cupcakes. mini pizzas…so why not mini meatloaves? The hubby described this mini Meatloaf Cupcakes to me a few weeks ago. It sounded perfect for the kiddos. I knew they would get a kick out of mini meatloaves with mashed potatoes on top. I was RIGHT! These mini Meatloaf Cupcakes were a hit. We all polished off a tray for dinner last night.
Meatloaf Cupcakes Recipe
This Mini Meatloaf Cupcakes Recipe would be perfect for serving up meatloaf to a large group. Consider making them for your next potluck or office lunch. The meatloaf cupcakes held together real well and were full of great flavor. Plus they are perfect sized.
If you have some ground beef you are looking to use in a meal this recipe will be great. I like that you really do not need much ground beef to stretch into a filling meal.
1 lb Ground Beef
3/4 cup Milk
1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup Quick Oats
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp Onion Powder
2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 cup crushed Club Crackers
2/3 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
2 tsp Mustard
2 cup Mashed Potatoes
Preheat Oven to 350.
Place mashed potatoes in a zippered bag or piping bag and set aside for later.
Combine Ketchup Mustard and brown sugar and mix well. Set aside.
Combine remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Press this mixture into muffin pan.
Spread top of each with the ketchup mixture.
Bake for 30-45 minutes.
Allow to sit for 5 minutes, remove from muffin pan and pipe on a mashed potato “frosting”.
Next time we make these Mini Meatloaf Cupcakes I plan to toss in some of my favorites like green peppers and onions. The flavor was great but I love large chunks of veggies mixed in too (I wish my kiddos did, ha ha).
