Turn the idea of a traditional cupcake upside down with this clever recipe. After savoring these meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potato "icing," you may never make meatloaf the same way again.
If you cannot find herb butter in your market, use 1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs such as basil, parsley or oregano with the 1/4 cup butter. If you are using dried herbs, use only 1 teaspoon.
If you do not have a decorating bag, substitute a resealable food-storage plastic bag and cut off one bottom corner.
If you would like your potatoes to have a little texture, once you have piped the potatoes onto the meatloaves, place the muffin pans under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes.
You can use foil muffin cups to line the pans for easy removal of the meatloaves, if desired.
