They have a wonderful presentation, and are fairly easy to make. The kids thought it was great to lick the potatoes off first then dip the remainder in ketchup :)
|Mini Meatball Muffin...mmm|
2 lbs Ground Beef
1/3 Cup Potato Flakes (or bread crumbs)
1/4 Cup Milk
1 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp. Parsley
2 Tsp. Garlic Powder
1 Tsp. Onion Powder
1 Tsp. Pepper
Mashed potatoes for topping.
Grated cheese for topping.
I use my stand mixer to mix it all up, then fill the muffin cups (or just make meatballs). Bake at 350F for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Mini muffins will be closer to 10-15 minutes and large muffins will be closer to 20-30 minutes.
Remove from pans, top with mashed potatoes. I put mashed potatoes into an icing piping bag and it was quite simple. However I do not recommend trying to do this when the potatoes are still super hot. I was impatient and did this and my hands are paying for it! Top with grated cheese and serve hot :)
