DADDY BRAD Have your kids ever asked you to
have cupcakes for dinner. Sick around for this episode for Quality time and you can
say yes. Thanks to our sponsor BABYBJORN. Kids love
to eat cupcakes, and moms and dad love for kids to eat meat and potatoes. Why not combine
the two, meat and potato cup cakes. It may sound disgusting but its not, its awesome.
Your kids will dig making these and they will dig eating them. And its incredibly simple.
First for the cakes, You will need 1lb of ground hamburger, half cup of seasoned bread
crumbs, 1 cup grated Monterey jack cheese, 3 tbls of ketchup, 1 egg, half tsp celery
salt, and _ tsp pepper. Combine these ingredients in a big bow and thoroughly mix. Next get
12 foil baking cups and spoon the meat mixture into the cups about _ full and place in a
muffin pan. Preheat the oven to 375 and put those puppies in the oven, bake for 15 to
20 minutes or until cooked through. Now for the frosting. Two ways to go here, you can
buy a box of instant potatoes and follow the directions on the box or you can go a little
bit healthier. If you do it from scratch here is a quick recipe. You need 4 or 5 medium
white potatoes, _ stick of butter _ cup of half n half, and salt and pepper. Let the
kids peel the potatoes and then you cut into medium size cubes put into a pot, cover with
water and then boil for 20 or 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. When the potatoes
are tender, drain the stock, add the butter and _ mash and or blend until smooth. Separate
into three or separate bowls and add food coloring, green blue whatever. Get a heave
duty 1 gallon Ziplock bag and a icing tip. Cut a small hole in one corner and place icing
tip. Fill the bag with colorful mashed potatoes and decorate like a cup cake. Voila!
