Meatloaf Cupcake and Mashed Potato Frosting

I thought these were fitting you know with my cupcakes business and all. It's been pretty quiet this week with orders. It's kind of nice to catch a weekend break every once in a while. We are back at it next weekend though! We have some awesome Hot Pink / Lime Green Wedding mints!! :)
 
I tried Stroller Cross fit this week, yeah OUCH. I loved it though I want to try and do it more than once a week. The nice thing is is now I know some of the exercises so I can do them at home! I did really good that day but two days after I needed help off the toilet! ugh! I have a mear 50 pounds left to my goal at this point but I would be happy with 40 - stay tuned for updates!
 
Meatloaf is usually a cold weather food in our family but who could resist these cute little balls of fun! Maddox even enjoyed the Mashed Potatoes. You can make your own Mashed Potatoes or use a box! Make sure they are a smooth consistancy!
 
Cupcake Ingredients:

2 lbs ground beef
1 cup Quaker Oats
1 cup Heinz Ketchup
10 oz frozen mixed veggies
1/4 or less Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 egg
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
Optional - Dark Gravy
 
Substitute - some people like BBQ instead of Ketchup, I'm sure that would taste good too!
 
Follow me through the easy steps !
 
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees then spray a muffin/cupcake pan with Pam or Easy Bake. Combine the ground beef, oats, ketchup, mixed veggies, cheese, salt, pepper, and egg in a stand mixer - mix well. Start pressing the meatloaf into the muffin pan. Make sure the pan is sprayed, you will be eating out of the muffin tin! Bake these for about 25 - 30 minutes. Pull them out of the oven and if you make the mashed potatoes a little thinner you can use a cupcake piping bag and a tip to swirl the make it look fancy - these would be awesome for a dinner party finger food!
 
You can whip up a dark gravy while these are baking!
