Trick or Treat: Baked Alaska

For our Trick or Treat Dinner, originally the cake was going to be mashed potatoes and meatloaf, but then we realized it would not be delicious at room temperature. So, Maybelle's Dad made baked Alaska of a sort.

Top meatloaf baked in large muffin tins with piped mashed potatoes. Broil and voila mid-century Americana times two.

Maybelle's Dad's Meatloaf
based on Simply Recipe's Classic Meatloaf

4 eggs

Sautee in olive oil
1 red pepper (finely chopped)
1 small leek (finely chopped)
3 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
1 medium carrot (finely chopped)

Add aromatics to:
1 LB chicken Italian sausage (cut from its casings)
1 LB ground mixed turkey
2 t salt
1/2 cup catsup
1/4 cup red pepper sauce (from a Korean grocery store)
1 T worcestershire sauce
2 eggs, cracked and beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
1/3 cup parsley minced

Line muffin tins with bacon, add a few tablespoons meatloaf, add egg, cover with meat, and cover with bacon.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.

This sounds good for thanksgiving esp since we found beef bacon now. ;)

Do i broil the mashed potato after baking the meatloaf?

Bacon makes everything taste better! This looks absolutely fabulous. I'm bookmarking this and hopefully will be able to make it soon.

A local winery called "Ponte" serves bacon wrapped meatloaf and it is sinful and delicious! I think the only think I'd add to the center of each mound of meatloaf mixture is a big chunk on cheddar cheese for a beautiful surprise in each cup. Plus cheddar compliments bacon so well and my meatloaf always has chunks of cheddar in the center of the loaf.

:-) Happy Meatloaf Making!

Made this tonight but used venison instead of turkey. It was amazing. Thanks for sharing!
