Meatloaf Muffins with Ranch Style Mashed Potatoes
Serves: 12
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • ½ Cup Whole Grain Rolled Oats
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ Tsp Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • ½ Cup Diced Onion
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic minced, or an equal amount of store bought minced garlic.
  • ¼ Cup Ketchup
  • ¼ Cup Milk
Ranch Style Mashed Potatoes
  • 5 Medium Potatoes
  • ¼ tsp Parsley
  • ¼ tsp Dill
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper
  • ¼ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ¼ tsp Onion Powder
  • ⅓ Cup Buttermilk
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix with your hands or a stand mixer. Be sure to get everything incorporated well.
  3. Grease a cupcake pan, or place silicone cupcake liners in one. (I swear by silicone and it works exceptionally well with meat, it won’t stick!)
  4. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for one hour. Be sure to cut one open before calling it done to be sure it’s cooked all the way through to your liking.
Ranch Style Mashed Potatoes
  1. Put a pot of water on the stove the appropriate size for your potatoes to cook in. Let it heat up while you do step number two.
  2. Peel and chop your potatoes, you can leave the peel on, but be sure to clean them well if you do.
  3. Once the water is boiling add in the potatoes and cook them until they are tender, about 20 minutes.
  4. Strain the potatoes, and put them into a stand mixer or a bowl to use a hand mixer with.
  5. Add in the spices and buttermilk and mix well. They should fluff up a bit.
  6. I used an ice-cream scoop to put the mashed potatoes on the meatloaf muffins, but you can use a spoon, or simply just eat them together.
For the Ketchup, since I have tried and just dislike making my own ketchup a lot, I use Hunts brand. There are no corn syrups, just a few ingredients, and it’s affordable. Even when you make ketchup at home you add sugar, it just doesn’t taste right without it!
I used whole milk, but any milk will work, including almond or soy!
An optional ingredient would be cheese, just mix it in with the rest of it before putting it into the muffin cups.
