French Dip “Cupcakes”

In my daily quest to find new blogs to read and recipes to try, I’ve come across a real winner! Emily Bites makes easy, delicious, crowd-pleasing recipes, but that’s not all. Each of her recipes comes with the Weight Watchers Points Plus value, which I adore. It makes life so much easier to have someone else calculate that for you, so thank you, Emily!

Today’s recipe comes from Emily’s line of “cupcakes”. I saw these French Dip “Cupcakes” on Pinterest months ago, so I have no clue what took me so long to try them out. They are stupid easy to make and delish! They would be a perfect appetizer, but also work well as an entrée. I think kids would love these!

French Dip “Cupcakes”
From Emily Bites
4 WW Points Plus per cupcake


12 oz deli roast beef, thinly sliced and chopped into pieces (I used 10 oz)
4 Laughing Cow Light Swiss wedges, chopped
1/3 cup beef gravy (Heinz from a jar worked well) 
16 wonton wrappers
1 cup reduced fat 2% shredded mozzarella cheese (I used swiss)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375. Lightly mist 8 cups in a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside. 
  2. In a microwavable bowl, combine the roast beef, cheese wedges and Au Jus sauce. Microwave for 2 minutes on high. Stir to combine until cheese wedges are melted and roast beef mixture is fully coated with cheese and gravy.
  3. Push a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each of the eight sprayed cups in the muffin tin. Spoon about half of the roast beef mixture evenly amongst the wonton wrappers. Sprinkle about half the shredded cheese evenly over the top of each cup. Press another wonton wrapper on top and repeat the layering steps with the remaining ingredients.
  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes before removing from muffin tin.

It’s important to note that the bottom of these cupcakes will not be crispy. It will be soft like a noodle. Also, be sure to spray your muffin tin lightly or else you will have some greasy cupcakes and no one likes that!

I served these with some homemade sweet potato fries, and it was the perfect Sunday dinner!
