Yesterday's post on the great meatloaf fake-out shows the meatloaf mixture going into muffin tins, instead of the typical loaf shape.
We were feeling all sorts of kooky in the Sweet Pea kitchen and decided to make meatloaf cupcakes:
Want to try this trick? We cooked the meat cupcakes for about 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees. The "frosting" is mashed potatoes using mostly light cream cheese to thin the potatoes, rather than butter or milk, which makes the potatoes hold their shape better. And the "candle?" Why an asparagus spear, of course!
This was a fun trick to try with R and G. They got a huge kick out of it and even ate the candle, which I think was the first time they willingly ate asparagus. Though, they didn't ask for seconds on the candle...
Playing with your food is fun,
