Meatloaf in Disguise
By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor
I just discovered that muffins are not just for breakfast or snacks anymore. I was at Trader Joe’s and saw, in their freezer section, Meatloaf Muffins. Say what! They were cute tiny rounds of meatloaf with a layer of spinach and a dollop of mashed potatoes on top. Meatloaf is one of my favorite comfort foods and I love the idea of making them into muffins. Piping the potatoes on top of the muffin gives the appearance of frosting. Talk about kid-friendly!
I thought that meatloaf muffins would be the perfect dinner on Halloween. I found a great recipe by Rachel Ray on the Food Network. These savory muffins are fun and easy to make. I may even add some orange food coloring to the potatoes just to add to the merriment of the evening.
