Do you know what one of my favorite meals is? Meatloaf and mashed potatoes!
So why not make my favorite meal into cupcakes!!!
This is actually a super easy and delicious meal.
All you need are your regular ingredients for meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
I generally don’t follow a recipe when it comes to meatloaf…I just throw some hamburger in a bowl, add a handful of oatmeal, an egg yoke, some BBQ sauce and Dijon mustard, and a whole bunch of spices (whatever I happen to have in my cupboard).
And when I said a whole bunch of spices I mean a WHOLE bunch (that picture is 1 of about 3 handfuls of spices I added in). I heard somewhere that hamburger is one meat that you have to spices to while its raw because its hard to add flavor to after its cooked. So my general rule of thumb is to put waaaaaay more spices in that I think necessary… and it always turns out GREAT!!
Then all you have to do is mix it all up and scoop your meatloaf mix into a cupcake pan and bake in the oven until its cooked through.
Once your ‘hamburger cupcakes’ are baked and your potatoes are mashed, pipe the potatoes onto your hamburger base and sprinkle with chives.
And that’s it! So easy!
I added a touch of gravy and a big salad to make it a meal 🙂 (got to get those veggies in!)
This is one meal that is definitely going onto my “repeat” list when it comes to dinners!
