Peanut butter and chocolate, pancakes and maple syrup, wine and cheese: some foods are just better together, and placing high in those ranks is the dynamic dinner duo mashed potatoes and meatloaf. Reinventing such a strong classic can be difficult, but eHow Food did it in a way we love: meatloaf cupcakes iced with mashed potatoes.
Though they aren’t quite as filling as this savory layer cake, these “cupcakes” layer the two comfort food favorites for snackable bites that make the traditional meal new again. Use our trick for getting the creamiest mashed potatoes so that they can pipe onto your meat cupcakes just like sweet frosting. We highly suggest drizzling gravy over the top of each one as a final touch before digging in. The result is a seriously satisfying snack or fun, kid-approved dinner the whole family will love.
