Today is a day which will live in infamy. No, it is not Pearl Harbor day. Today is one of the very few days where I made a meal that both my husband and I LOVED. Like, really and truly loved most of the components. Ok, so he doesn’t love green beans, but he doesn’t hate them, so I’m taking it as a win!
So, what do we have here? Pure deliciousness in a cupcake form, that’s what. It is also known as French Dip “Cupcakes.” I found THIS website which has tons of great lightened up meals. She also does some amazing “cupcakes” which aren’t really cupcakes. I really like the portion control that comes with individual, predetermined servings. Like I mentioned last week when I made meatloaf “cupcakes,” individual servings are much easier to save for later.
The French Dip “cupcakes” couldn’t have been easier to make. For real, it was super easy! I picked everything up the grocery store, came home and had dinner on the table (or tv trays, don’t judge!) in just 30 minutes. The ingredients are all super easy to find and there isn’t much preparation required. The only thing I had to actually prep at home was doing a quick chop of the deli roast beef which took all of one minute.
I had never worked with wonton wrappers before and let me tell you, they are the easiest thing ever! The package I bought left enough for another meal, so I’ll be trying another of Emily’s awesome “cupcakes” soon! The cheeseburger and tacos look great!
After the roast beef and the wonton wrappers, there are only three other ingredients. Laughing Cow Light Swiss wedges, au jus gravy, and 2% mozzarella. Can’t beat that, huh?
As side dishes, I had some canned green beans, which I ADORE and some instant mashed potatoes. I made them for the first time last week and it turns out, I really like them! I mean, they aren’t my mom’s mashed potatoes, but for a easy weeknight side dish that is low in points, they do the job!
And how do the French Dip “cupcakes” come up in terms of WW? Simply awesome! Each “cupcake” is just 4PP! No really, its true! (If you are interested in the nutrition info, head over to the recipe link and Emily has posted the information.)
So, the moral of the story? You should make these asap. No really, right now! Ok, I suppose you can wait until tomorrow…if you insist. I know I’m looking forward to having two of them for lunch tomorrow!
