Savory Cupcakes with a hint of beef and starch!
I have found several different examples of this culinary art work of foodies' websites and blogs (just google "meat cupcakes") This is a clever twist on the traditional "meat and potatoes" dinner; perfect for those people who have kids that are finiky eaters. Make fun of dinner!
