IMG_0127

30-45 Minute Recipe

Okay so you can make this with any protein you’d like, but similar to the Ring the Alarm Chops I wanted to spice up the ground pork. Like I said before pork isn’t really my thing but I do love bacon!! So when I create dishes now I days I want to do something fun and experiment a lot more.

This was actually Betty Crocker inspired recipe and it turned out really well. Next time I’m actually going to make the mashed taters from scratch, it’s more time-consuming but I’m sure the overall result will be even better. I may also use turkey sausage next time as a healthier alternative. This was really fun and I seriously grabbed the Betty Crocker potato packet from Family Dollar and I had the ground pork in the freezer …everything else I had at home in the cabinets.

EASY. WALLET FRIENDLY. FUN. QUICK.

What do you need?

I like to buy my veggies from the store pre cut its actually cheaper (for me) to buy a pack for $2.41 (or less) and use it three to four times than to buy each one of these veggies separately. Yellow, red, and orange peppers are not cheap.

Mix the paste and sauce together don’t forget to add the nutmeg & sugar. Just a bit will do, but add to taste to take away the acidity!!

Time to make some mashed potatoes, this was my first time using potatoes out of a pouch -_- … I would never, but there’s a first for everything and it wasn’t that bad.

Cheese

Pepper

Thyme (just a bit)

Minced onion (just a bit)

Oh yeah I added a bit of garlic powder

Once you have your cupcakes topped place in the oven at  375 degree and bake  for about 30 minutes or until your protein is fully cooked and your icing in nice and golden.
