Surprise Meat Loaf Cupcakes

Melanie Campbell


My son does not like meat loaf. My husband and I are always fighting with him to try it and if he doesn't like it, we won't place it on the plate anymore. Also, my son rather eat backwards (dessert first then his meal). I was about to loose my mind until I came up with this thought and tricked my 12 year old son
