Halloween Meatloaf Cupcakes

I know a lot of you seem to like my meatloaf cupcakes, and I figured I’d make a Halloween Meatloaf Cupcake!  I first had the idea of a purple mashed potato, then sweet potato as pumpkin, and I just couldn’t wait until Halloween to make them..  So I made them now, and I’m so happy I did!  Chris came home and was very happy to taste test.  He first thought I used food coloring – no no no, they’re all natural!  I actually had to hunt down purple potatoes.

 I would have liked to use standard size potatoes or even medium yet all I could find was petite – in other words pain in the butt to peel.  Would I do it again??  Without a doubt, so yummy!
When I think of Halloween colors of course I think of orange and black, then again I also think of purple and green.  Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays.. It was my daddy’s favorite too!  I’ll never forget how much he loved to decorate.  I’m sure he would approve of these cupcakes..  I even wore one my fall aprons while making these. Love aprons
