      These were soo good! They were really cute and colorful for April Fool's Day, yes, but this was also really good meatloaf! It was just bursting with flavor and so moist! I did have to cook about 8 minutes extra, but that's ok! The kids loved having the colorful leftover mashed potatoes on the side too. One note: This isn't a big deal, but I did find that the "cupcakes" pulled away from the cupcake liners as they baked, so these didn't look quite like cupcakes, but it was close enough! And definitely follow the recipe instructions and use foil cups...all I had were paper ones, and beside grease seeping through them, we had to be careful that none of the paper stuck to the "cupcakes" when we took them off. Great recipe! Thanks!

      I made these for April fools day and then forgot where the recipe was. I'm glad I found it hiding in my cookbook for safe keeping. I can't wait to make them again maybe for one of our potlucks. It was my first time making meatloaf and everybody loved them. Thanks for a fun and tasty recipe.
