This was the ploy to my children. That it was indeed a cupcake, just of the meat variety. One tried it, the other not so much. So this weeks Resolution in Motion is a half success.
I'm really trying to get my kids to eat a variety of foods. I'm tired of them wanting the old stand by of chicken nuggets and chicken nuggets. So why not put something in a muffin pan? I'm convinced that when you put something in a muffin pan or cup cake liner, your kids will agree to try it. It has to be something about cupcakes and miniatures. Kids go crazy for both.
I found this meatloaf recipe on Pinterest, and with 4 ingredients I just knew it was a match made in kitchen novice heaven. I'm not good with bread crumbs (I forget to buy them), or the torn day old bread (what does that even mean). So when I saw that this was a box of stuffing I was sold on the idea. Just four ingredients, a muffin tin, and 35 minutes to perfection.
The original recipe says nothing of a muffin tin. That was my idea. I also used turkey as the entire house is on a mission to eat better. Baby steps right. Caitlin didn't want to try them at first because I added a sauce to the top. The sauce I used is from The Gluten-free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy. It's 1/4 cup ketchup; 2 tsp. brown sugar; 1/2 tsp mustard: mix and pour over the top. John and I love the glaze. Caitlin not so much. No big. I promised next time I'll leave the sauce on the side. Also this recipe is NOT GF, just the glaze. If you are looking for a GF meatloaf, leave me your email in the comments and I'll happily share.
Not a bad dinner when served with Mac and Cheese, steamed broccoli, and slice apples.
Recipes for Resolution in motion are now going to be a Sunday thing.
