Dinner Cupcakes Wednesday, September 18, 2013, 02:09 PM
This is more of a technique than a recipe. The idea of cupcakes are as follows:
Use wonton wrappers and regular muffin/cupcake tins. Spray the tins with pam and lay a wonton wrapper in each tin. Press into the bottom and parcook at 350 for about 4-5 minutes. You just want to par cook it and make it harder. (this step was added 2013-08-22)
(Optionally) sprinkle a bit of cheese at the bottom. Then, fill a layer of filling and add a small amount of cheese (optional but helps the next layer stick). Add a layer of wonton wrapper and press well. Add the final layer of filling and top with cheese (again optional).
Spray everything with pam and cook for 14-18 minutes at 350 until the edges are crispy. Carefully remove with a fork around the edges.
I do not know the exact amount of filling. In general, about 2/3 lbs of protein and lots of veggies for the filling (maybe 1-2 zucchinis, some red peppers, etc). Also, I like to french-cut onions since they take up more room than diced.
A general idea with filling is to use some type of cheese (laughing cow works well) to make a more coherent filling.
