Play with your food

In an effort to make dinner fun I whipped up some meatloaf cupcakes today. Now I know that somewhere out in blogland these have probably been done. That said I am NOT going to google it, because I like to think that these are my very own creation. Oh, and I didn't use the Lipton soup mix recipe, I used my own (which oddly enough had onion soup in it, haha).

Both kids loved this, but honestly I think if I stuck a candle in anything and sung the "unbirthday" song they may eat it. May. So here it is...

Melissa's meatloaf cupcake (I can't stop laughing at the name)

Preheat oven to 350


2 lbs lean ground beef
1 packet of dried onion soup mix
1 egg
1/4 c ketchup
1/2 c breadcrumbs
2 T worcestershire
2 t season all

Combine meat mixture with hands, do not overmix (makes your end result a bit chewy).
Place meat mixture into greased muffin pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes.

Frosting and sprinkles: mashed potatoes and peas!

Add candle and sing songs for garnish. Enjoy!
