MEATLOAF CUPCAKES THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!
- Wilton Decorator Plus
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 onion diced
- 1 stalk celery diced
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup tomato ketchup
- 1 cup breadcrumbs or panko
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2-3 medium Russett potatoes
- Chicken broth enough to cover potatoes while boiling
- 1/4 cup half and half milk is ok, too
- 1 tablespoon sour cream
- 2 tbsp butter
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Paprika and/or garlic powder to taste optional
- Parsley finely chopped
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Insert cupcake liners in pan. If not using liners, spray holes of the muffin tin.
- Combine meatloaf ingredients well.
- Scoop enough meat to fill most of a cupcake liner or hole, and shape it into a ball.
- Press into the muffin tin. Don't flatten too much.
- Repeat with the remaining meat combo. It should make about 8.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes until browned on top. Remove from the oven.
- Peel and dice the potatoes. Cover with chicken broth in a pot.
- Cover, and boil for about 30 minutes, or until tender.
- Drain the broth and set aside. Save some broth to thin out your potatoes, if needed.
- In a small saucepan, combine half and half, butter, & sour cream. Heat only until warm. Don't boil.
- While cream sauce is heating up, mash the potatoes. (A whisk may be useful)
- After mashing the potatoes, add in the cream mixture a little bit at a time. Stir between pouring.
- Use the leftover chicken broth and/or half n half to thin out your potatoes to the perfect consistency. (Don't make it too thin, you want it to be thick enough to pipe, or sit on top of the cupcakes).
- Add in seasonings a little at a time, and taste after each addition to make sure it's how you like it.
- Top with mashed potato, either by piping it, (I use this Wilton Decorator Plus) or put a dollop on with a spoon.
- Serve with a sprinkle of parsley, if using.
