Description

Kid approved recipe! Even the “I hate meatloaf” people love this BBQ bacon cheddar meatloaf. It is easy to make this super kid friendly version by turning it into a cupcake look-a-like.

Dessert for dinner?

Ingredients

  • FOR THE MEATLOAF:
  • 4 pieces Bacon
  • 1  Onion, Chopped
  • 1-½ pound Ground Turkey
  • ½ cups Breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
  • ½ cups BBQ Sauce (your Favorite Brand)
  • 2  Eggs
  • FOR THE MASHED POTATOES:
  • 4 cups Cubed Peeled Yukon Gold Potato (for 4 Cups You'll Need About 2 Pounds)
  • ½ cups Heavy Whipping Cream Or Half-and-Half Or More As Needed
  • ¼ cups Sour Cream
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Or Sea Salt Plus A Dash For Your Boiling Water
  • ¼ teaspoons Freshly Ground Black Pepper (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon into the hot skillet and cook until crisp. Remove bacon from pan and place on a paper towel (leave the drippings in the pan). Allow bacon to cool. Crumble into pieces.

Add chopped onion into the reserved bacon drippings and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Remove pan from heat and allow onions to cool.

Add turkey, breadcrumbs, cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce, eggs, sautéed onions and crumbled bacon into a large bowl and mix until combined.

Evenly spoon the meat mixture into 12 muffin cups that you’ve coated with cooking spray. Gently press to even the tops. Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through. Remove pan from oven and set it on a rack. Let the meatloaf sit for 5 minutes before removing frm the pan.

While the meatloaf is cooking, make the mashed potatoes. Place potatoes in a pan and cover them with water. Add a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil then cover the pot, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until tender. Drain.

Run potatoes through a ricer for best results (or you can mash by hand or use your preferred method for mashing). Return mashed potato to the pan. Add heavy whipping cream and remaining potatoes ingredients. Stir with a spoon to desired consistency. If they are not creamy enough for you, add up to 1/4 cup more cream or milk (although they need to be stiff enough to pipe on top of the cupcakes).

Put the potatoes into a pastry bag with a wide star tip and pipe the mashed potatoes on top of the meatloaf cupcakes.
