Directions

  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.

These are amazing!! So full of flavor! The only thing i had trouble with is making the potatoes look pretty on top! The kids and hubby loved them! I will definately make these again.

The meatloaf was EXCELLENT but the sauce was lacking. It was so overly sweet and lacking any balance. I added 1/2 tsp soy sauce, 1/2 tsp roasted garlic powder, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1/4 ts...

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...

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

We had this today (April Fool's Day) at my Bible Study. Thought we were having cupcakes. They were decorated with Turquoise Icing (she used food coloring in the potatoes). Friend who made them j...

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

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...

This was very good, fairly easy, and the kids loved it. I made it as is, except I changed the sauce. I used 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup ketchup, and 4 tsp of apple cider vinegar. That cuts some...
