Hello little muffin of yumminess! How cool is this meal? It is such a perfect little individual sized meal. Your kids and guests will go crazy for these! I know I always say this, but this tastes amazing! You have to make this!


This is so good, I can’t even tell you. Ok, I have to tell you! On the top there is delicious sauce with a combination of flavors of ketchup, barbecue sauce and hot sauce. Just below the sauce is the meatloaf and it is so juicy, moist and full of incredible flavor! As you bit into it further you hit the creamy mashed potatoes. To make these potatoes creamy and tangy I added greek yogurt! This gives it a nice extra punch of protein without many calories. As if this isn’t enough there is turkey bacon stuffed in the middle.



Like I said this is incredibly amazing!! The best way to do this is making the raw meatloaf and the mashed potatoes the night before because it does take up quite a bit of time. So in the future I am going to do half of the work the night before.
