Meatloaf Cupcakes

Meatloaf Cupcakes 005_2

I’m always looking for recipes that I can make in not much time and that are party friendly. By party friendly I mean easy to eat with no need of using cutlery. I meet my girls once a week for Girls Night and every one of us brings something to eat or drink. It’s a good way of sharing the costs and takes a conveniently short time, since we usually meet after work.

Looking around on my favorite cooking blogs I found this recipe, Meatloaf Cupcakes. Actually it’s meant to be a different way of serving meatloaf, so children would find it more appealing.

With some changes I think I’ve found my next Girls Night Recipe and I hope they enjoy them like I did today with my flatmate! Btw 3 of them is a generous portion 😉

Ingredients for 10 Cupcakes


  • 1 ts olive oil
  • 100gr finely chopped onion
  • 50gr finely chopped carrot
  • 1 ts dried oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 120gr ketchup
  • 500gr ground beef, extra lean (raw)
  • 125gr bread crumbs
  • 2 ts mustard
  • 1 ts Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 ts freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • Cooking spray
  • BBQ sauce

Mashed Potatoes

  • 4 medium potatoes (about 900gr)
  • 125ml milk
  • 2 TS butter
  • 1/2 ts salt
  • 1/4 ts freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 180°C.
Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot, oregano, and garlic; sauté till the onion looks transparent. Let it cool down, if not you could burn yourself when mixing with the rest.
Combine onion mixture, beef, eggs, ketchup, bread crumbs, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and black pepper in a large bowl.
Spray the muffin tin with cooking spray and distribute the meat mixture into 10 muffin cups. Bake at 180°C for 25 minutes. Turn off the oven and let it stay for 5 minutes inside. Wait until cold, then they’re easier to remove from the tin and they would not fall apart.
While the meatloaf is in the oven, boil the potatoes for about 15-20min. Add milk and remaining ingredients; stir with a fork to desired consistency. Decorate as you wish.
