WONTON TURKEY MEATBALL CUPS

Yes, I’m at it again–making food cups out of wontons. This time those crispy critters hold meatballs. My guys liked the ones made with meatloaf, but it was the meatball version that had them urging me to pleeease make this again. Easy and very very tasty!

36 turkey meatballs, thawed (I used Armour brand, fully cooked)

spray olive oil

36 wonton wrappers

3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese

3/4 cup white cheddar cheese

1-1/2 cups spaghetti sauce (I used Gia Russa brand cherry tomato)

1 green onion, sliced thin on the diagonal

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2) Spray olive oil in each cup of a 12-cup muffin pan; assemble 12 wonton cups as follows: layer 3 wonton wrappers in each muffin cup; lightly spray wrappers with olive oil

3) Layer each meatball cup as follows, evenly dividing ingredients: sharp cheddar cheese, meatballs (3 to a cup); bake 8-10 minutes until wontons begin to blister and turn golden; remove from oven

4) Evenly dividing spaghetti sauce, spoon over and around meatballs; sprinkle tops with white cheddar cheese and green onions; return to oven and bake 3 minutes until cheese melts; remove from oven and serve

Servings: 4 dinner-sized portions or 12 appetizers

NOTE: This is a “repeat” recipe, meaning it was previously featured on my original “Kitchen Novelist” blog–the one that disappeared into a black hole a while back (which is the reason WordPress and I met up).

    Wow – I really like this recipe. And I have some wonton wrappers in the frig that I was wondering what I was going to use them for . . . now I know. Thanks Tam!! How’s the rewrite going?

    • Wonderful! I hope you enjoy them, Pam. As for the rewrite, when it goes fast, it goes very very fast; when it goes slow, it goes agonizingly slow. It’s taking some major scene rewriting to turn Saxon Bride into Lady Of Conquest, and then there are the addition of scenes. But it’s coming along and should be available late spring. I hope you are doing well, dear lady!
