April Fool's Day

Want to pull a fast one on your kids this April Fool's Day?  How about cooking up some cupcakes.  But instead of batter, it's meatloaf.  And instead of frosting it's mash potatoes with food coloring!

Side note:  Because of our allergy ridden house, I make a turkey meat loaf.  My kids LOVE it.  I will include a recipe for a classic meat loaf (the dear hubby loves) and the turkey loaf we enjoy as a family


1 beaten egg
1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs (I always use the Italian Bread Crumbs in the canister)
1/4 milk (or water...we use water because of allergies)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 t. dried Italian seasoning
1 lb. ground beef

TURKEY Meat Loaf
1 1/2 lb. ground turkey
1 small chopped onion
1/2 cup bread crumbs (again, I use the Italian Bread Crumbs in the canister)
1 egg beaten
1 cup grated Parmesan (we omit because of allergies, but I imagine it's TASTY)
2 T Dijon mustard
1 7 ounce jar sun-dried tomatoes
Salt and pepper

3 cups mashed potatoes
Food coloring

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 12 muffin tin cups with foil bake cups.

In a large bowl, mix together all of the meat loaf ingredients until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly among the lined cups (the liners should be about three quarters full).

Place the filled muffin tins on cookie sheets and bake the cupcakes for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.

Divide the mashed potatoes among three small bowls and stir a few drops of food coloring into each batch to create blue, yellow, and pink pastel frostings. Spread a generous dollop on each cupcake. Makes 12 cupcakes.
