Two New "cupcakes"



Recommended Posts

So... I was working on cooking food for this week and decided to venture off into some new territories with the infamous "cupcakes" we all seem to love so much here on VST... Have to say, they were both fantastic! Give them a shot and let me know what you think!

They're prepared just like the Lasagna or Cheeseburger Cupcakes so I'm going to shorten the directions a little. (There's plenty of places to find those full recipes but my favorite is where I think they all started at... Emily Bites)

First... Sloppy Joe Cupcake (makes 12 servings)

- 1/2 lb Lean Ground Turkey

- 1 cup Canned Sloppy Joe Mix (I like original Manwich the best)

- 12 Wonton Wrappers

- 6 tbls Freshly Grated Parmesan cheese

- 4 oz Shredded Skim Mozzarella

- 12 Dill Pickle Slices

Brown the turkey and mix with a little salt and pepper and add the Sloppy Joe mix.

Place one wonton wrapper in each cup of a cupcake pan.

Place a tablespoon or so of the turkey/sloppy joe mix in each wonton wrapper. (Evenly split the mix so you can make two layers in each cup.)

Place a small amount of grated parmesan cheese, a dill pickle slice and then the mozzarella cheese.

Repeat the turkey mix and cheeses (without a pickle the second time).

Bake at 360 for 15 mins and watch to make sure they don't brown too much or too quickly.

132 calories, 5 grams fat, 12 grams Protein and 8 grams of carbs. (Carbs can be a little lower if you hold back a little on the sloppy joe mix which I think you could probably do.)

Second one may seem a little weirder... My favorite pizza is shrimp and artichoke heart and I've been craving one pretty bad so...

Shrimp and Artichoke pizza Cupcake (12 servings)

- 8 oz Cooked Baby Shrimp

- 1 cup Light Marinara (I use Ragu Light)

- 1/2 cup Chopped Artichoke Hearts

- 12 Wonton Wrappers

- 1/2 cup Skim Ricotta

- 6 oz Shredded Skim Mozzarella

- 6 tbls Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese

Mix the shrimp, marinara and artichokes together (no need to heat up).

Place one wonton wrapper in each cup of a cupcake pan.

Place a tablespoon or so of the shrimp mixture in each wonton wrapper. (Evenly split the mix so you can make two layers in each cup.)

Place a small amount of the ricotta, then the grated parmesan cheese, and finally the mozzarella cheese.

Repeat the shrimp mixture and cheeses.

Bake at 360 for 15 mins and watch to make sure they don't brown too much or too quickly.

108 calories, 4 grams fat, 11 grams Protein and 7 grams of carbs.

Hope you enjoy!

This is great. There are so many different kinds of recipes here that it's hard to choose. At least now we can eat good tasty foods at any stage and still get in Protein. That is a wonderful thing :wub:

Thanks all... Let me know what you think if you decide to make them...

@janette1969... While I would think so since I had the lasagna cupcakes during my soft phase, I would be careful because of the pickle and the shrimp... Use your best guess and we'll see what everyone else has to say.

Where can I find the recipe for the lasagna and taco cupcake?

On www.emilybites.com. Soooo many ideas-I want to try them all! I used a pack of meat and split it to make both cupcakes. I froze a few and my husband ate most of the taco ones...gotta make em again.

How long do the won ton wrappers last in the fridge? You get quite a few in the package and I've thrown the rest of the package away. You can't really tell if they turn bad.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
