Cupcakes for Dinner!

Mama, what’s for dinner?

Cupcakes!

Huh?!? We get cupcakes for dinner??!?? We get cupcakes for dinner!!!!


Cupcakes for Dinner

1 lb Ground Beef
½ cup Seasoned Bread Crumbs
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack
3 Tbsp Ketchup
1 Egg
½ Tsp Celery Salt
Pepper

3 Cups Mashed Potatoes
Food Coloring

Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Line 12 small (or 6 large) muffin tin cups with foil bake cups.
In a large bowl, mix together all of the meat loaf ingredients until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly among the lined cups (the liners should be about three quarters full). Place the filled muffin tins on cookie sheets and bake the cupcakes for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.
If you want to make more than one color of frosting, divide the mashed potatoes among small bowls and stir a few drops of food coloring into each batch. Mix together until it's as smooth as you like. (We like our frosting a bit lumpy!) Spread a generous dollop on each cupcake and serve!

Pure awesomeness, I think I saw a Halloween Menu with something like this. I'm sure the kids loved them!

Sounds fun and tasty, but, I have to admit the colored "frosting" is creeping me out. I think I'll stick with white.

Get out of here! This is so awesome! I want to give this a try; I think my boy would go crazy for it!

That's a great idea!! Maybe my son would eat potatoes if I made them a color. I think I have the ONLY kid who doesn't eat mashed potatoes! Arg.
