The perfect tasty game day appetizer! These Crispy Philly Cheesesteak Appetizer Cups use wonton wrappers to get their crispy shell. Best of all they are baked so you get your traditional Philly cheesesteak flavors all in one "healthy" bite!

Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 Cups
Author: Bite Sized Kitchen
Ingredients
  • 1 lb. Deli Roast Beef or Rib Eye (sliced very thin/thinly shaved!)
  • 3/4 Cup White Onion (Diced Small)
  • 1/2 Cup Green Pepper (Diced Small)
  • 6 Egg Roll Wraps
  • 8-10 Slices American Cheese or Provolone (Or 3/4 Cup of Cheez Whiz)
  • 1/2 Tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt
  • 2 Tbsp. Oil
Mini Muffin Tin
Instructions
  1. Slice your roast beef thinly and place in large bowl. 

  2. Add oil to a skillet followed by your onions and/or peppers. SEASON your peppers and/or onions with the salt and pepper! Saute for 5 minutes over high heat. Add to your sliced beef and mix together.

  3. Prepare your wonton cups!

    You can do this either using a round cookie cutter/mold or by tracing around a mug with a sharp knife.

    The important part is that the edges of your wonton are just slightly higher than the tin itself but not TOO high!

  4. Make sure you brush or spray BOTH sides of the wontons with cooking oil! Be generous! This will allow them to crisp up nicely. Then press them into your muffin tins using your fingers.

  5. Fill cup halfway with meat mixture and add a small slice of cheese. Fill the rest of the tin (ALL THE WAY to the top of the wonton) with more meat mixture. Then add another square of cheese to the top.

  6. Bake on the BOTTOM rack at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes. The top rack will burn the cheese and/or wonton edges!

  7. Serve with ketchup or more melty cheese sauce on the side!

Recipe Notes

Serving Tips*

If you choose to use another meat, be careful not to overcook it or under-season! Salt and pepper is needed for all meat!

You can cut the wontons and fill them ahead of time. Then just pop them in the oven to bake 15 minutes before you want to serve.

Try baking these before guests arrive and then re-heating them in the oven at 350ยบ F for a couple of minutes.

Do NOT use spring roll wrappers! They will come out more flaky and will fall apart.
