Meat Loaf Cupcakes

So, I was looking for a good vegan meat loaf recipe, and I came across this website that suggested putting the meat loaf into a muffin pan so that leftover portions could be frozen and re-heated easily.  Having a kidlet who doesn't care for meat loaf, I thought, "Hey!  Meat Loaf Cupcakes!"  Anyhoodle, we got a recipe and made the meat loaf.

It was terrible.

The recipe we used turned out practically inedible.  The flavors were just all wrong.  As disappointing as that was, however, there are other recipes to try, and this whole cupcake idea was adorable.  Here's how we did it.  Use with your favorite meat loaf recipe, and may yours turn out tastier than ours.  Ha ha!



Using pre-shaped cupcake foils or squares of tin foil (I embossed my corners in an attempt to be like Martha), line the cups of a muffin pan.  Taking generous handfuls of your meat loaf mixture, fill the cups to the top.  "Frost" with your topping.  I used a mix of ketchup and dry mustard.  It's delicious.  Pop your meat loaf cupcakes into the oven for about 30 minutes (remember these don't take as long to bake through as a full loaf pan would).  When finished baking, pipe on some fun designs with mustard.  Done!
