Garrit doesn't actually like meatloaf, so these probably shouldn't be called mancakes, but who cares. They are too manly to be called cupcakes.
prepare meatloaf as usual, but instead of using a loaf pan, put it into a cupcake tin. use liners if desired. cook for about 30 minutes (because they're tiny, they'll cook faster)
( i made my meatloaf by toasting leftover garlic bread until it was really dry instead of using crackers or oatmeal or something like that. i cracked in a couple of eggs, sprinkled lots of oregano and montreal steak seasoning, and garlic salt and fresh ground pepper with my ground beef, and it was really tasty. don't forget the brown sugar and ketchup on top!)
make some mashed potatoes in the meantime. put mashed potatoes in a plastic bag with the tip cut off. try putting ranch in the potatoes if you're using food storage potatoes. believe me.
when the meatloaf is done, pipe mashed potatoes on as frosting, and top with shredded cheddar cheese!
