Cheeseburger “Cupcakes” (WW 4 Points)

Another yummy recipe made using wonton wrappers! They are so my favorite thing to use, they are light and make me feel like I'm cheating even when I'm not! NOW only eating 2 of these can be a test in itself .. lol. NOW wonton wrappers where like a hot item I went to Walmart 2x and QFC and no luck. So I bought egg-roll wrappers and cut them into 4th and it worked perfect!

As most of you know I'm a little bit obsessed with Emily Bite's, her website is a GREAT resource for meals that are yummy and light (and weight watcher friendly). I don't do weight watchers but I love to make a meal that already has the numbers figured out for me so I know what I'm allowed to eat. This time I made her Cheeseburger "Cupcakes.


INGREDIENTS:

  • ¼ cup onion, finely chopped
  • ½ lb 95% lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick Hamburger Seasoning
  • 4 oz mushrooms, chopped
  • 4 Laughing Cow Queso Fresco & Chipotle wedges, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 16 wonton wrappers (typically found in the produce section)
  • ½ cup tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 oz (1 cup) reduced fat 2% shredded cheddar cheese

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375. Lightly mist 8 cups in a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Mist a large skillet with cooking spray and bring to medium heat. Add chopped onions and sauté until cooked. Add ground beef and Hamburger seasoning and cook until meat is browned. Add mushrooms and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes until mushrooms are browned as well.
  3. In a microwavable bowl, combine meat/mushroom mixture, cheese wedges, ketchup and mustard and stir. Microwave for one minute on high. Stir to combine until meat mixture is fully coated.
  4. Push a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each of the eight sprayed cups in the muffin tin. Using about half of the meat mixture, spoon evenly into the wonton wrappers. Follow by sprinkling some of the chopped tomatoes into each cup (using about half the total tomatoes). Sprinkle about half the cheddar cheese evenly over the top of each cup. Press another wonton wrapper on top and repeat the layering steps with the remaining ingredients.
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes before removing from muffin tin.

ALEXIS NOTES: I cut down egg roll wrappers to fit into a wonton shape. I skipped the mushrooms and used a can of diced tomatoes for easy for me moment! I had Swiss Laughing Cow so I used that instead.



Enjoy I promise these will be a hit!
