A few years ago, we made these “cupcakes” for dinner to have some April Fool’s Fun. My kids asked about these yesterday. Although not included on my menu plan, we are going to juggle things around so we can make these cupcakes — gluten free this time — to keep up with tradition.
Basically, these cupcakes are simply meatloaf “cakes” with mashed potatoes for frosting. They are actually quite yummy. Here’s the recipe from Family Fun magazine, just substitute gluten-free bread crumbs and you’ll be good to go. Or use your own meatloaf recipe, any would taste fine. For a yummy, healthier meatloaf recipe, check out this one at Gluten Free Girl.
*Just a note — it has recently come to my attention that food coloring is NOT good for you! We try to avoid it as much as possible. I have seen coloring derived from natural/food sources at the health food stores, if you are looking for a more healthy alternative.
