Meatloaf Cupcakes with Sweet Potato Frosting

These are my lovely, lovely friends. Chels being a young, independent, life ass kicking home owner, means we have been having lots of family dinners together. The other night (the night pictured above) we decided to get fancy and make meatloaf cupcakes (as you’ll see below). These nights are kind of fun. Gathered together in the kitchen. Determining what we can create. What can we imagine and think of. Then helping each other out to make it all happen. Laughing, singing dancing, telling stories, daydreaming….whatever the moment brings. Then we can sit down in the living room and chow down. Ranting about what awesome cooks we are. Plus lots of moaning, in shear tasty pleasure.

Turkey Meatball Cupcakes with Sweet Potato Mash

  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 cup cashew meal
  • 2 eggs
  • chopped red onion
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 2 oz. sour cream
  • Chives to garnish

Let’s Make it Happen: Begin with the sweet potatoes. Chop them up. Toss with a little melted coconut oil. Bake at 350 until tender.  Now get started on your meatloaf by sauteing the onions and garlic. Fry bacon. Cool and chop into pieces. Put into a bowl with turkey, cashew meal, eggs, tomato paste, and seasonings. Use your hands. Get in there! Really mix it all up. Grease muffin tins with coconut oil. Scoop meatloaf into each tin. Mine made 18. Bake in the oven at 350 for 45 minutes or until the centers are not longer pink. Once the sweet potatoes are cooked, puree in a food processor with cream cheese and sour cream (sorry not Paleo, but feel free to make coconut milk sour cream or use raw cream cheese). Place into a bag. Pipe on to the tops of the muffins. Or simply spread some mash on top if you’re too impatient like we were. Eat, enjoy, go out on the town and have some fun!

  1. My husband would love this. But, he’d like mashed potato frosting better, with a smidge of cheese melted on top. 🙂
