Meatloaf Muffins with Sweet Potato icing

I have redeemed myself! ha! 
After my terrible FLOP the other night I was nervous to attempt anything new or creative. 
 A few weeks ago, in one of the magazines I flipped through while waiting for an appointment, had a picture of Meatloaf Muffins with Sweet Potato as the Icing... Looked wonderful!

I did not rip out the page or write down the recipe so I came up with my own!

I did not blend the sweet potatoes like the recipe said I simply mashed them with my fork. Leaving a little texture. :)

They were delicious!!!!

The Ingredients:
1 1/2 lb of ground beef
1 apple, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 eggs
1/2 cup of Almond meal
garlic powder
21 seasoning salute

6 small sweet potatoes

The Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Poke holes in the sweet potatoes and bake for 30 minutes or until tender.
Set aside and let cool.

In a large bowl add apple and red bell pepper. Mix in 2 eggs and mix well. Add ground beef and Almond meal and mix well with your hands! Add seasonings. I forgot to add tomato sauce or tomato paste but the flavor was great without.

In muffin tins add meatloaf mixture. My meat filled 12 tins exactly. Bake for 20 minutes or until meatloaf is done. While they are in the oven scoop out the center of the sweet potatoes and mash with a fork. Add cinnamon and nutmeg and mix a little more. Add the sweet potato mixture into a baggie and cut off one corner (just like if you were going to add icing to something) and top the meatloaf muffins with the sweet potato.
We served our muffins with brussels sprouts.
