Recipe: Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Frosting

Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Frosting

I am proud of myself!  I have been working on building my Recipe Binder and in doing so I have found a ton of recipes that I just had to try. 
Earlier this week I shared a cookie recipe that was an instant hit in my house and now it is time to share a Main Course with you. 
Just like the other family approved meal from Skinnytaste – Cheeseburger Casserole – this fun Meatloaf recipe is also now a family favorite! 

Jude adores Meatballs so I thought his fun take on Meatloaf would be a hit at the dinner table!  I was right!!  Jude called these cupcakes, Meatballs but I don’t care because he ate it up quickly and I love that while he thought he was eating a Meatball he also ate some onions, zucchini and carrots!  Mommy SCORE!!!
Enjoy and have fun!

For the Meatloaf Cupcakes:

1.3 lb 93% lean ground turkey
1 cup grated zucchini, all moisture squeezed out
½ cup grated carrot, all moisture squeezed out
2 tbsp onion, minced
1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup ketchup
1 egg
1 tsp kosher salt

For the Skinny Mashed Potato "Frosting":

1 lb (about 2 medium) Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 large garlic cloves, peeled and halved
2 tbsp fat free sour cream
2 tbsp fat free chicken broth
1 tbsp skim milk
1/2 tbsp light butter
Salt and Pepper to Taste
2 tbsp fresh thyme

Put the potatoes and garlic in a large pot with salt and enough water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat; simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain and return potatoes and garlic to pan. Add sour cream and remaining ingredients. Using a masher or blender, mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a muffin tin with foil liners.

In a large bowl, mix the turkey, zucchini, carrot, onion, breadcrumbs, ketchup, egg, and salt. Place meatloaf mixture into muffin tins filling them to the top, making sure they are flat at the top.

Bake uncovered for 18-20 minutes or until cooked through.
Remove from tins and place onto a baking dish.

Pipe the "frosting" onto the meatloaf cupcakes and serve.

Makes 12.
