From the moment I saw Sweet Creations by Good Cook’s Bake-A-Bowl I was in love. There are so many things you can make with this pan from sweet to savory. There were so many ideas that popped into my head such as making a cornbread bowl and filling it with chili, making a chocolate cake bowl and filling it with ice cream, or even making a bread bowl for spinach dip. But for this post I wanted to really think outside the box or bowl in this case. I figured post people would be baking in their bowls so I decided to make my bowl out of meat!
It was really easy. First put the ground beef in a bowl and added the rest of the meatball ingredients.
Mix all the ingredients into the ground beef until it is thoroughly incorporated. I don’t like getting meat and other stuff under my acrylic nails so I like to use Playtex’s CleanCuisine Disposable Gloves when I need to get my hands dirty.
Fill each bowl with 1/6 of the meatball mixture. It should come up to the line in the center of each bowl on the pan. Use a spoon to make a “well” in the center of each bowl.
Put the top piece of the pan on top of the bottom piece and make sure the tabs on the sides fit into the slits on the bottom pan. Cook for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Remove meatballs from pan and place upside down on a plate with paper towel to drain off the excess grease.
Plate meatball and fill with some tomato sauce and spaghetti. Top with more tomato sauce and shredded Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
You could adjust the recipe to your usual meatloaf recipe, use the same technique to make the bowls, and then fill with corn, peas, and/or carrots and then top with mashed potatoes for a fun twist on boring meatloaf.
Spaghetti and MeatBOWLs Ingredients-
MAKES 6 MeatBOWLs
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup Italian style breadcrumbs
2 teaspoons of ground garlic and herb mix or Italian seasonings
angel hair pasta or spaghetti (cooked)
shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
Mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined. Fill each mold to the 1st line. Use a spoon to create a “well” in the center of each bowl. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove bowls from pan and invert each one on a plate covered in paper towel to drain the excess grease. Fill with tomato sauce, pasta, more tomato sauce, and top with shredded Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
