Meatloaf muffins

Yes they look like cupcakes, but they laugh in the face of that pathetic excuse of a dessert. For this is a meaty muffin, topped with sticky BBQ sauce and crowned with light-as-a-cloud whipped potato literally melts in your cake hole. Amen.

For Meatloaf
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 150g finely chopped onion
  • 75g finely chopped carrot
  • 75g red pepper, deseeded
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 170ml ketchup or Red’s Judas Ketchup
  • 170ml Red’s Unholy BBQ sauce
  • 680g ground beef, extra lean
  • 90g bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp Red’s Beef Rub, or 1tsp black pepper and 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp Red’s South Carolina BBQ sauce
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • 50ml milk
  • Cooking spray
For Whipped Potatoes
  • 900g cubed peeled Maris Piper potatoes
  • 60ml milk
  • 60ml sour cream
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
For Garnish
  • 3 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp chopped red chilli
  • 4 rashers smoked streaky bacon, cooked and chopped

1. Preheat oven to 220°C/450°F.

2. Put onion, carrot and red pepper into a food processor and pulse processor blades to finely chop the vegetables.

3. Add the finely chopped vegetables to a bowl with the minced beef. Mix.

4. Add eggs, beaten with milk, breadcrumbs, Red’s Beef Rub (or salt and pepper), oregano, garlic and mix.

5. Next, mix together the ketchup, Unholy BBQ sauce, mustard BBQ sauce, and the Worcestershire sauce. Pour half the sauce mixture into the bowl with the meatloaf mix. Mix the meatloaf together with your hands.

6. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

7. Spray a 12-muffin tin (you can use cupcake cases too) with cooking oil. Use an ice cream scoop to help you fill meat into each tin. Top each meat loaf with a spoonful of extra sauce.

8. Bake for about 20 minutes and make the whipped potato.

9. Beat butter into the potatoes with an electric mixer until butter is nearly melted. Add milk and sour cream; beat until smooth. Season with salt and black pepper and place into a piping bag.

10. Remove the meatloaf muffins and pipe the whipped potato on top, in a cupcake swirl. Garnish with bacon bits, red chilli and chives.
