"These look like a little cupcake with the meat inside of a muffin pan and mashed potato icing. My kids eat these up quickly."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix ground beef, saltine crackers, onion, green bell pepper, milk, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, black pepper, and seasoned salt together in a bowl.
  3. Stir ketchup and brown sugar together in a bowl. Spoon ketchup mixture into the bottom of each muffin cup of a 6-cup muffin tin.
  4. Fill muffin cups with beef mixture, leaving 1/2-inch space on the top.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Drain fat from muffin cups.
  6. Top each 'cupcake' with mashed potatoes and Cheddar cheese.
  7. Continue baking until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

Fun way to serve for kids and they were delicious. Only a pain to clean the muffin pan. LOL

Absolutely loved this recipe! I put a chunk of cheddar cheese in each one and instead of cups I used turkey bacon .

I have a really picky eater at home. Four of them actually. My girls didn't want me to make meatloaf until I found this recipe. My son ate it without arguing. Hubby was the first one to eat when...

I altered the recipe by using salt free crackers and adding salt to taste. I believe salt is a very personal choice mostly because of health issues. Great recipe and fun to make with my granddau...

Loved them. To deal with Angela's problem; I put the mashed potatoes in a pastry bag and used the largest tip I had. A little finely shredded Wisconsin sharp cheddar on the top and you have a ta...

My family really liked this recipe. I thought it was good but the ketchup and brown sugar sauce was a bit too sweet for me. I doubled the recipe and used a 12 cup muffin pan like another reviewe...
