Treat-loaf Trash

When is a meatloaf… not a meatloaf? When it’s made into a treat, like these clever meatloaf cupcakes from Six Sisters’ Stuff. Surprised? I’m still impressed that some people can make meat into a loaf at all (a shape normally reserved for bread), but now we can have meat for dessert, too? Thank goodness!

How meat shapes work is beyond me, frankly, which you could probably guess since my husband doesn’t allow me to go near the kitchen for fear I’ll be tempted to make something, burn it, and feed it to him. I assume there’s lots of smooshing involved, and quite possibly hot glue. You’re also going to need to know a few people who can stand the taste of meatloaf, which is going to completely rule out most people under the age of four. Reader Nancy must’ve been missing at least one of those ingredients when she made her treat-loaf attempt. My guess is the glue.

They sort of fell apart on her, and she reports that getting the potatoes smooth enough to pipe like icing was a disaster. My advice? Next time, try more glue.

    Potato ricer! Makes instantly smooth potatoes, no endless mashing required.

    Oh my god meatloaf is so delicious. I would eat it every day. I am also more than four. A pretty generous multiple of four, actually. But OMG. Meatloaf. We are totally having that for dinner tomorrow. But not with piped potatoes.

    We’ve made meatloaf in our muffin tin several times and never really had a problem. It’s a good recipe because it doesn’t take as long as cooking it in a loaf. We haven’t tried making mashed potato “icing” though.
