14-inch/30 to 35-cm pastry bag and fill with the hot Garlic Spuds (use caution, because the bag can be hot to the touch). Have fun and be creative with your designs. Garnish with a light dusting of paprika and a slice of jalapeño or Serrano pepper. If you’d like the potatoes to be golden brown, place the “frosted” cupcakes under a hot broiler for a few minutes.

For the Ranch Dressing 1 cup mayonnaise � cup unsweetened plain yogurt � cup buttermilk 1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh chives 1 garlic clove, crushed � tsp. Tabasco sauce fine sea salt and black pepper, to taste TO MAKE • Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C. • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your hands—be sure to blend everything together, scraping the side of the bowl with a cake spatula. (If you like your “wings” spicier, you can increase the amount of hot sauce, but
with the edges and working into the center. (You can also spread a thin layer of tomato sauce onto the last layer of pastry dough before adding the Lamb-A-Licious mixture if you prefer a more pronounced tomato flavor.) Spread the meatloaf filling on top of the final layer, leaving a 1-inch/2.5-cm border on each side. Roll up the pastry dough around the filling to form a log, then seal the seam by pinching lightly. Fold in the two ends to secure the meatloaf filling. Trim the excess pastry dough,
remove them from the hot oil with tongs or a slotted spoon. Immediately place on paper towels to drain. Finish up and serve immediately, seasoning with more salt and pepper, if you like.
