This is just kind of a new spin on meatloaf. It seems like when some hear the word 'meatloaf' they immediately turn their nose up and gag a little. Well.... I am here to tell you these little delights will change your mind about that! They are 'cute' and delicious and a perfect size for kids. You can make them and freeze the leftovers and with a quick blast in the microwave have a delicious, nutritious and fast meal for your family. You know I love cupcakes, so this is my take on the meatloaf cupcake...
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, or 1 Tbsp dry parsley
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sage
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
Combine eggs and milk, stir in bread crumbs, onion, parsley, salt and sage (I like to also add about 1/4 tsp pepper). Add hamburger and mix until all is combined. Get your muffin tins and spray them generously with Pam. Using a large spoon or I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup, divide the hamburger mixture into each of the 12 tins.
1/2 cup catsup
4 Tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp dry mustard
Mix these ingredients together and then spoon this sauce onto each of the hamburger muffins.
Now is the pretty part. Add the 'icing'
Clean, and boil 10-12 red potatoes
When the potatoes are cooked, drain the water and add:
1 cube butter
3/4 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
Mash all together. Then place a dollop (I like that word) of mashed potatoes on each meatloaf muffin and tada.... meatloaf cupcakes... (You have to admit they are cute)
