Cupcake With Sprinkles For Dinner

Not to be confused with taking a cupcake from your last party or birthday and eating it for dinner. This cupcake is made from ground turkey, mashed potatoes and corn. Yummy! All you have to do is mix your favorite spices in with the ground turkey or ground beef, we used meatloaf seasonings,mix it up and place some ground turkey into the cupcake pan. We cooked the ground turkey at 350 for about 20 minutes......give or take a few. Took them out of the oven when they were 5 minutes away from being cooked. Placed them on a cookie sheet and then back into the oven for the remaining 5 minutes. This way you take them out of their juices from the cupcake pan and cook off the rest of the juice. Cook and mash your potatoes. Put the mashed potatoes in a plastic bag after they have cooled. Cut the corner off the bag and pipe it onto the meat. Sprinkle with corn and have your dinner cupcakes!

A fun variation would be mixing in some food coloring with the potatoes. Something else fun to do is to cut or scoop a circle from the middle( without touching the bottom) of the ground turkey and replace with some ketchup. MMMmmmmn.

There is a breakfast variation made with sausage, grits, and scrambled eggs.........just in case you wanted to know.
