A huge cupcake of “meatloaf” just seemed too heavy so I made these into “meatloaf” cups that can hold a big dollop of mashed potatoes. Like a meat crust.

Then, just add a few more spices as listed in the recipe below …

Mix it all well. Then divide into 9 to 10 even balls. Using your hand, flatten them into rounds then press into the bottom and up the sides of a cupcake tin. Use a nonstick cupcake tin or place a circle of parchment paper in the bottom of the tin to prevent sticking.

Bake at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes. They’ll come out looking like this:

Put a teaspoon or so of ketchup with a little BBQ sauce added into the center of the cupcake.

I used a plastic bag with a corner clipped off to pipe the mashed potatoes into the shells. That’s an easy way. Just shape it a little with a fork. Or just spoon the potatoes in and shape a bit.

Once in the shells, I added a little vegan butter (I use Earth Balance). But that’s totally optional. Some chives and a little flake salt finishes it nicely.

The meatloaf mix is oil-free and it’s easy to make the potatoes without oil as well.
