Mini Mummy Meatloaves

Ingredients

1 pound
Ground Turkey (or ground beef)
2  
Eggs (beaten)
3 tablespoons
ketchup*
2 teaspoons
Worcestershire Sauce
2  
Carrots (peeled and finely shredded)
3 cloves
Garlic (minced)
1  
small onion (optional, finely diced)
1⁄2 teaspoon
Sea Salt
1⁄4 teaspoon
ground pepper
1 cup
plain bread crumbs
3 tablespoons
Ketchup (for brushing on top)
1 cup
mashed potatoes (to pipe on top)
24  
Peas (for eyes)

Notes

*We like the ketchup recipe from Whole30, or Simply Heinz.

NOTE: You will also need cupcake/muffin liners, mashed potatoes (you can make them homemade or use a quick boxed mix) and either sliced olives or peas for the eyes.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Prepare a (12 well) muffin tin by inserting liners into wells. Then set aside.
  3. Next, prep all necessary food as described above: shred carrots, mince garlic, and fine dice onion, if using.
  4. In a large bowl, combine eggs, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Whisk until well combined.
  5. Divide meat mixture between the 12 wells of your pan.
  6. Then, transfer to your pre-heated oven. Cook approximately 15-20 minutes, or until turkey is cooked through.
  7. Once turkey is cooked through, remove muffin tin from oven, and brush tops of meatloaf muffins with a small amount of ketchup over top. Cook for approximately 5 minutes more. Then remove from oven to allow to slightly cool.
  8. While your turkey meatloaf muffins are cooking, makes mashed potatoes and peas. You can make mashed potatoes like you usually would make them (a homemade recipe), or can use a boxed mix of choice. One potatoes are done, scoop a portion of them in a Ziploc bag, and then snip the end of the bag (so that it resembles a pastry bag). Place cooked peas in a serving bowl. Set both aside.
  9. Once muffins are slightly cooled, pipe potatoes back and forth across the top of each of your muffins, until the design resembles a mummy, as shown in these photos.
  10. Then use sliced olives or peas to create eyes. If using peas for eyes, go ahead and serve the remainder of the peas for a side. Another fun idea? – A clementine “pumpkin.” Serve and enjoy!
