My husband has asked me several times to make him meatloaf and I could never bring myself to make it. It could be due to the fact I never ate it growing up so I didn’t really know what I was missing out on. After years of him asking I finally decided to make it, but my way. I don’t eat red meat, so substituting with ground turkey was a must!
I had seen meatloaf cupcakes floating around Pinterest and the idea of mini meatloaves was genius! Not only are these “cupcakes” the perfect kid-friendly food, but these are great to bring to dinner parties as well. These meatloaf “cupcakes” are a huge hit with all our friends and family and my husband’s co-workers are constantly asking me to make them.
I love the simplicity of these meatloaf cupcakes. Just throw all the ingredients together, stuff them in some foil cupcake liners and bake them in the oven. Easy peasy and completely delicious. However, what really throws these mini meatloaves into a category of its own is the mashed potato “frosting.” Mashed potatoes and meatloaf go together like peanut butter and jelly. It just wouldn’t be right without each other. It’s like Heaven in every bite!
