Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    Meatloaf Cupcakes
    2 pounds extra lean (96%) ground beef
    1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
    2 egg whites
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 medium onion, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
    3/4 teaspoon McCormick 25% less sodium steak seasoning

    3 cups mashed potatoes (We used this recipe.)

    2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
    1/4 cup reduced-sodium ketchup
    12 grape tomatoes

Tips

Feel free to skip the parsley and tomato if your kids are picky. You could also top with gravy!
If you don't eat red meat, use ground turkey.


Directions

SERVES 12 ~ 1 meatloaf cupcake per person
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine all the meatloaf ingredients in a large bowl. Use a half-cup measure to scoop the meat into muffin tins coated with cooking spray.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
While the meatloaves are cooking, prepare your mashed potatoes.
Transfer the mashed potatoes to a large resealable bag. Snip off one corner of the bag.
To serve, place one meatloaf on a plate, then pipe the mashed potatoes (about 1/4 cup) on top.
Sprinkle with parsley (optional), drizzle with ketchup, and top each with a grape tomato.

    grate a little carrot in it for more veggie. Oh, and a little cauliflower in the mashed potatoes. - 11/1/13

    The only thing I would do different is use 1/2 dry oatmeal with the bread crumbs for the filler to give it a little more nutritional value. - 11/1/13

    I made this many years ago for my four kids. They are now all in their forties, but they remember how much they liked this dish. It is easy to make and tastes so yummy. - 11/1/13

    Kids loved it but my cognitive dissonance couldn't get around the two facts: it looks like a cupcake and it smells like meatloaf. Similar to why I can't eat cadbury easter eggs. They look like soft boiled eggs. - 6/9/14

    I'm making this for dinner tonight, but I will use ground turkey instead since that's what I have in my freezer. I'll add some diced red and green peppers to this also. - 11/1/14
