“Look, it’s a cupcake!” blurted my junkfood-loving 3-year-old. He must have thought I’d flipped. Cupcakes for dinner at last! I didn’t care what he called them, as long as he ate them. I took the turkey meat loaf recipe from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, made some adjustments and turned them into cute individual muffin-sized servings. Meat loaf has never been a kid favorite, but meat loaf muffins are an entirely different food group. They can reasonably be considered finger food and they’re even tasty at room temperature, which makes them perfect for the lunchbox.

I made these tonight and made some really creamy mash potatoes for “frosting”. They were a family wide hit! Thanks for the recipe!
What a great idea! I love it.
I have a gluten allergy, I don’t care for gluten free worchestire. Is there anything I could substitute for this?
Hmm, good question. Have you tried gluten free tamari? That might be a decent substitute.
I don’t generally have Worcestershire sauce in the house… Trying Thai fish sauce, which is similar but doesn’t have the wheat. Could also get a good result with a mix of fish sauce and Tamari.
