Stuffing and Mashed Potato "Cupcakes" and a Crazy Cupcake Challenge

This is proving to be a super busy weekend. A weekend full of Halloween fun, parties galore, and a big 13th birthday for my wonderful daughter! She has requested Red Velvet Cupcakes for her party. I really want to do a bit of a twist on them so my mind gears are working overtime to figure that out.

Needless to say, mealtime has been a bit rushed and I've been looking for fun and easy ideas for my Crazy Cupcake challenge. Here is my latest concoction...Stuffing and Mashed Potato Cupcakes.

I really don't have a specific recipe for this one. I just used the cheater stuffing, prepared according to directions.

I cooked up 3 large potatoes and whipped them up with 2 tbsp of butter, some sour cream, salt and pepper.

I pressed an even amount of stuffing into 12 muffin cups and topped with a scoop of taters. I topped each cupcake with a bit of shredded cheese and a sprinkle of dried parsley and placed into a 400 degree oven for about 7-8 minutes.

These are so darn cute! I think they would be great for Thanksgiving, don't you?!

Speaking of Thanksgiving....How about a little challenge from the Ungourmet!

Send me your most creative CrAzY CuPcAkE recipe and I will put it before my panel of judges (namely my kiddos). The winner will walk away (or rather, be mailed) a few goodies.

I was thinking of this pie crust shield and this awesome spatula. This spatula ROCKS! It is so perfect for scooping out those stuffing and mashed potato cupcakes!

So, send me your recipe idea by either a link in your comment or to my yahoo email. kkautto(at)yahoo(dot)com. I want to pick a winner before Thanksgiving so that the winner can use these prizes while whipping up the big meal.

How about we make the deadline...Thursday, November 19th. That should be enough time to mail out prizes.

Show me whatcha got! :0)

Mashed Potatoes and stuffing in a cupcake form. Love it!! I think your new title should be "Queen of all Cupcakes".

I love this idea for a crazy cupcake. Stuffing is amazing. One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving.

Happy 13th birthday to your daughter!

I am going to try very hard to come up with a crazy cupcake for your contest. At the least I can't wait to hear about some of the entries!

Cathy said...

Two of my favorite foods, mashed potatoes and stuffing, in one tasty cake. Love the presentation, Kim.

Heather said...

noble pig said...

What a cute cupcake, love the stuffing in there and a very happy birthday to your daughter!!

Mary said...

Happy Birthday to your daughter. I love your "cupcakes". Are you looking for sweet or savory recipes for the kids to judge.

lisaiscooking said...

Those are cute cupcakes! A mashed potato topped meatloaf cupcake might be fun--a whole meal in a cupcake.

Kristin said...

Those "cupcakes" look incredible. Definitely Thanksgiving worthy!

rhonda said...

Those look super yummy and you know I wonder how hard it would be to have like a little meatloaf on the bottom and then the potatoes on the top. You would have to cook the meatloaf a little first and then add the potatoes, but I really like the idea! I am going to have to try it!

Angie's Recipes said...

Love your creative ideas of "cupcaking" savoury food...maybe that's the next leading trend in wine and dine!

Wow, you've combined 3 of my favorite savories: cheddar, stuffing, and mashed potatoes. I bet they taste amazing together. I am the biggest stuffing freak :) On thanksgiving I usually eat more stuffing than turkey...

Mesina said...

Congrats on your SITS day! Oh I love the idea of these cupcakes, they are so unique! I think they'd go down a treat here at my house where my American upbringing shows my Dutch other half a thing or two! haha, he loves it. Oh now I'm hungry....

This actually looks and sounds yummy. Personally, I love the cheater stuffing, I guess because that's what I grew up eating. Thanks for sharing this. Oh and happy SITS day, congrats on being the Feature Blogger of the day. Those red velvet cupcakes look pretty yummy too!

Happy SITS Day!

The Double Dipped Life said...

When I make meatloaf, I make it in cupcake pans! It cooks faster, and the kids actually eat them that way! You can dye mashed potatoes different colors and put it on top of the meatloaf for "frosting"!

Melissa said...

AWESOME!

McMom said...

I can't wait for Thanksgiving! Now I know what I'm going to do with the leftovers. The kids will love it.
