Everyone loves cupcakes! Those sweet little bites of sugary goodness; they're small enough to make you feel like you're not wolfing down calories, but big enough to satisfy you! Cupcakes are just life's way of saying, "Go on, it's not that much, just take a bite!" 

Whenever you bite down into a moist, fluffy cupcake with colorful icing, your sweet tooth dances and your taste buds sing. So what if we mess with that glorious expectation of sugary goodness and replace it with... meatloaf!?

This recipe for disaster puts meatloaf in the familiar cupcake shape and ices them over with a lovely mashed potato icing.

Step 1: Ingredients

Meatloaf Ingredients:
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 an onion
  • 1 cup oats
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 8oz can tomato paste
Mashed Potato "Icing" Ingredients:
  • Potatoes
  • Milk
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Food coloring
  • Foil cupcake liners
  • Spoon
  • Cupcake tin
  • Butter knife/offset spatula
  • Bowl
  • Vegetable peeler
  • Pot
I love meatloaf and potatototototos
awesome concept.
Hmm I wonder. Has anyone done a taste test? In step 7 it looked sort of potent o.,o^.....but it would make for the best prank ever!
Better still, use a piping bag to pipe the mash onto the 'cup cake'.
jsut think of all the people i could pull this on (even though its past april 1st) gets me excited
