These are super cute! Great finger food, left overs are great to pack in a lunch. I made these using a large 6 cupcake tin. Not the 12 size one. I used 6 layers of wontons per cupcake that making 36 wontons. Not the 8 as the recipe states. I used half the beef adding minced peppers, mushrooms, onions and roasted garlic. Added pesto to the mixture skipping the red sauce. To the cheeses I added 1 egg, parsley, and black pepper. Quick to put together and very filling. Posted this Lasagna Cupcakes With Pesto a take off of this recipe. I will be making these on March 20, 2011 at 8:00 on the cooking Channel.
Very easy to make and delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
Sorry I forgot to rate these. I made them at Christmas time they were Delicious little bites. Made them in mini muffin tins and served them as an appetizer.<br/>They also freeze and reheat beautifully. Thanks for sharing
Cute yummers! Mini lasagnas. Made these tonight. Cheated and used meat sauce instead of browning meat. Wonder if you could freeze them -raw- and then bake later? Thank you KT.
These are GREAT!!!
How I found the recipe was FATE!
PERFECT written as it is, LOVE the versatility!
OK, was sort of paying attention while being distracted by DH! lol
I used square wontons, two to a cupcake,
Used silicone, so no oil spray to bake,
Did each later dropped in by a spoon,
Then used a fork to lightly pound down, am OVER the moon!
Did not do a double layer as honestly, don't think you need!
This makes for a fun, healthy, interesting feed!
Made my own tomato sauce, DOES make a difference, true!
Ran out of fresh basil, used dried and was STILL yummy too!
Mine made 12, did I MENTION EASY to make!
Also added microplaned fresh garlic for my health sake!
Surprised how easy these were to put together, since I've never used wonton wrappers before. I did add Italian sausage to the ground beef just because that's what my family likes in lasagna. Made some extra and froze them for a quick go-to snack. Since I love extra sauce...might try dipping them in some pasta sauce.
I used the small (regular sized) cupcake mold, used 48 wonton wrappers, and had two layers per cupcake (24 cupcakes). I left the square wrappers, without cutting into circles, and enjoyed the crispy edges. When placing the second wonton, make sure it offsets the first to create a fan type of look. I also started with italian sausage. These are so versatile - and easy! Will be making a version of these many times over, I'm sure.
This was a hit at our house! I made them as written - it was perfect. I'll be making again for us and for my bunco group!
What a great idea KT, can't wait to try! Since Rita~ tweeked this recipe and was able to take it all the way to the Cooking Channel (congrats to anyone who is able to achieve this), I hope you get kudos for the original idea.
I made these last night. My hubby is a VERY picky eater (more so than our daughter) and he loved these. This will be the only Lasagna that I make from now on. Thanks for the recipe, so quick and easy. I always have cooked hamburger in my freezer so this was a big plus recipe for me only one pan to clean.
