Ugly Cupcakes

Happy Late April Fools! I meant to post this sooner. These are actually little meatloaves with colored mashed potatoes on top. Nasty, huh? My kids came into the kitchen and I said, "Look what's for dinner!" They were so excited to have cupcakes for dinner until my oldest stuck her finger into the "frosting" and put it in her mouth. I should have taken a picture of her face. At least they didn't cry, I was kind of expecting one of them to have a melt down when their hopes of eating cupcakes for dinner were dashed.

Go here to see this idea that came from Family Fun (I know, I know. Mine look so gross and theirs look so pretty), and here's the meatloaf recipe I grew up on and love:


2 lbs ground beef
2 C bread crumbs (4 slices)
1/2 C. milk
1/2 C. minced onion
1/4 C. bell pepper
2 eggs
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl, mix well all ingredients. Spoon mixture into a 9x5 loaf pan, with spoon level top. Bake 1 1/2 hours.
