Ok, really, I haven’t lost my mind. Well, I may have lost my mind but that was years ago. If you read this blog at all you know that I’m cookoo for cupcakes. Hardly a week goes by when we don’t mix up a batch – if only from a box, hey there is no shame in that. Well, tonight for dinner, we’ll be eating little meatloaf cupcakes, frosted no less with colored mashed potatoes. Oh, and don’t think I’m the only one who thinks this idea is wunnerful. There are plenty of links for just this sort of thing on google. In fact, here is a recipe from Canada for you to peruse and you know that the friends to the north really know their meat products.

I plan to stud my “frosting” with green peas. I also plan to insert a little ketchup lovin’ in the center of the cupcake for a saucy surprise. Oh and don’t think I’m leaving them out of dessert. A nice batch of chocolate with vanilla icing will round out the night. Yes,even meat is not safe from cupcake baking tins.

Next on the agenda, crab cupcakes with seasoned cream cheese frosting. We’ll see how those come out, but I’m guessing like a lovely crab cake. Here’s hoping….

*I made these using ground turkey, ketchup and parmesan in the middle and a garlic & cheddar mashed potato on the top. They don’t look all that wonderful, but they were seriously tasty.

    Love. This.

    I made meatloaf Wellington for a dinner party in similar fashion, meatloaf in the muffin tins then wrapped with puff pastry and baked again.

    But yeah, I’m lovin’ this concept.
