Anybody want a cupcake? An April Fool’s Day cupcake? Had some fun in the kitchen this morning whipping up these “cupcakes”, they’d be a fun April Fool’s Day dinner for kids.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 cup ketchup, divided
1 1/2 pounds hamburger
1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 tablespoons mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups mashed potatoes (I used 4 medium sized potatoes and had plenty)
1 Preheat oven to 350, 325 for dark pans. Spray wells of 12 capacity muffin cup pan.
2 Cook onion, oregano and garlic in olive oil over medium high heat for 2 minutes.
3 Combine onion mixture, 1/2 cup ketchup, hamburger, bread crumbs, mustard, Worcestershire, salt, pepper and eggs in a large bowl and mix until well combined.
4 Scoop mixture into muffin cups, filling to top of cups. Top each meatloaf with about 2 teaspoons of ketchup. Bake for 25 minutes or until thermometer reaches 160 degrees.
5 Let meatloaves cool in pan for about 15 minutes. Put mashed potatoes in pastry bag fitted with large circular tip or in a large Ziploc bag with corner cut off. Pipe potatoes onto tops of meatloaves in circular pattern and sprinkle with bacon bits.
