blank'/> A LITTLE BIT OF LACQUER: Meat(cupcakes)

January 15, 2012


I made these for dinner last Sunday, and not only was the recipe super easy and delicious, they are just so darn cute! I was looking for a meatloaf recipe that I didn't have to go to the grocery store for and finally found one, only to realize I didn't have the traditional meatloaf baking dish (small kitchen fail). But, never being one to sulk and give up, I decided I'd make cupcakes! Meatcupcakes. Sounds so gross haha!

Here's what you'll need:

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a cupcake tray. Mix the eggs, milk, bread crumbs, onion, salt, pepper, and sage in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the beef.

Scoop the mix into the cupcake tray and bake for 40-45 minutes. While the meatloaf is in the oven mix the ketchup and brown sugar in a small bowl.

After 40-45 minutes, remove the meatloaf from the oven and spread the the topping on each one. Place back in the oven for ~10 minutes or until it is set.

Serve with rice or mashed potatoes and vegetables (meatloaf goes with anything)! The best part - the leftovers are so easy to freeze and reheat later! Hope you enjoyed the recipe!
