My husband's father does not like sweets I repeat he does not like sweets ... I know I'm just as shocked as you all are. Although this does baffle me I enjoy coming up with a savoury birthday dessert for him to enjoy.
This past year I made Grandma's infamous meatloaf into cute little cupcakes topped with some mashed potato icing and some fancy ketchup drizzle.
Needless to say the birthday boy was super excited.
Now on to planning next year's dessert I'm running out of crafty ideas:)
I love how all my old school recipes passed down from Grandma's and Great Aunt's never say how long to cook a recipe. Just put in the oven and bake ... so I baked this recipe at 350 degrees for about 40-45 minutes until the meat was cooked thoroughly. Use a meat thermometer to further guide you as every oven is different! If you are making a meatloaf I would bake it for one hour.
Top with some yummy mashed potatoes. I kept it simple by using some from a box. I waited until the potatoes were cool and then filled my piping bag. Use whatever icing tip you would like. Be crafty!
MMMMMmmmmmm .... and don't forget to top with a ketchup drizzle just before serving! i served these bad boys cool and they were a huge hit.
