2 pounds extra lean ground beef
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
3/4 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
How to make it
mashed potatoes (homemade or store bought- great use for leftover mashed potatoes!)
gravy (I used leftover gravy from when we had a roast earlier in the week)
Prepare muffin cups by lining each one with a square of foil. Lightly spray each cup of foil with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, tomato sauce and oregano. Make sure the ingredients are mixed well. Use a round 1/3 cup scoop to scoop up the meat mixture and put one into each cup.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
Warm some mashed potatoes and put them into a sturdy zip-lock bag. Force the potatoes into one corner. Snip the corner like a pastry bag and pipe the potatoes onto the “cupcake”. Sprinkle some bacon bits on top and drizzle with gravy.
