I made this dish a while back and it’s just simply to fun to share with all of you! Perfect idea for any dudes wanting ‘man food’ for their birthday. If you do it right it looks exactly like a cupcake and will be the talk of the party.
I found a recipe somewhere that showed meat muffins and I just thought it was the coolest idea and typical me I went crazy with it. I even took an asparagus spear and made it look like a birthday candle and then sprinkled bacon like it was sprinkles overtop lol!! (It’s the small things in life)
Also if you have kids big enough this would be such a fun dish to make with them!
–one pound of ground beef or venison
-pack of instant mashed potatoes
-1/2 cup of quick oats
-bag of cubed cheese of your preference
-mix meat, spices, egg, and oats into a mixing bowl and then put a base layer of mixture into muffin cups
-place cubes of cheese into the middle of the meat mixture and then cover throughly with more mixture
-put in preheated oven of 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes
-while cooking prepare your mashed potatoes and then put in a ziplock bag and then cut the corner off also cook your asparagus but make sure it stays crisp
-cook bacon until crispy and then chop up into pieces
-when muffins are cooked pull out and then do your best at creating a imitation of frosting on top of the muffins
-place asparagus into muffin to imitate birthday candle and sprinkle bacon pieces around surface
-cut into it and enjoy!
