New Year’s Eve – Ground Cheese Steak Bites & Roasted Garlic Aioli

New Year’s Eve……

Well, this is it! This is the second to the last recipe I will be posting this year. Then we get to start a whole new year with tons of amazing recipes to fill your files with. Today I am going to share a super quick appetizer with you that you can use at your New Years Eve party (or if you are like me, I just ate some of them for lunch) and before the week is over I will be posting a shooter recipe that will bring your cocktail list to completion for the dropping of the ball. I am pretty sure that I won’t be staying up to see the new year in, at least not on purpose, so you will have to do it for me. 😉

It took me less then 15 minutes to cook and assemble these bad boys.  You are going to get all the yummy goodness in a bit size package, and thanks to a little twist on the ingredients, you will also be spending less to create these mouth watering goodies. And anyone who reads my blog knows that I have an unnatural obsession with using won ton, or egg roll, wrappers for anything and everything you can think of. They make the best edible bowls, are inexpensive, and really easy to work with. I think these are one of my favorite wrapper recipes to date, just because they are so small and cute. And as we all know; bite size foods just taste better. (Since you already have the wrappers you can check out this appetizer recipe too! Chicken Jalapeno Cream Cheese Baked Wontons )

First, you can fold each egg roll wrapper in half, and then each half again. You don’t even need to use a knife. While the cups are baking whip up your aioli and set it to the side. And last, here is the best part, you can make them ahead of time and reheat them! Anything you can make ahead, makes life so much easier. I am going to let you go so you can whip up a couple batches of these, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

What are your New Year’s Eve plans?

Ground Cheese Steak Bites & Roasted Garlic Aioli

By Angie Gouchenour

16 Bites

ground+cheeseteak+bites+and+roasted+garlic+aioli6Ingredients

4 egg roll wrappers cut into 4 squares each

½ pound ground beef

¼ cup finely chopped green bell pepper

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon onion powder

Dash of black pepper

4 thin slices of smoked provolone cheese (48g)

Aioli

2 Tablespoons of your favorite mayo (I used olive oil)

1 teaspoon Sugar 2.0

½ teaspoon lemon juice

2 Roasted garlic cloves minced

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400’f

Prep the egg roll wrappers in quarters (See notes above)

Using a mini muffin tin gently tuck each square into a cup allowing them to make natural folds (Try not to let any of the tips touch, or they will bake together)

Place the tin in the oven for 4 minutes and remove; set aside

 

While the “bowls” are cooking you can start on your aioli

In a small dish combine the mayo, Sugar 2.0, lemon juice, garlic cloves; stir and set aside

 

In a medium fry pan start cooking your ground beef

When the crumbles are half way done, still somewhat pink, add your finally chopped green bell peppers, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper

Cook through and drain

Add the cheese and stir until the cheese melts, and the meat comes together like rice krispi treats

Evenly divide the meat and cheese mixture between the cooked cups

Top with a small amount of aioli and garnish with fresh, or dried, parsley if you wish

ENJOY!

  1. YUM! We love doing lots of different things with those egg roll wrappers (great for breakfast if you fill them with scrambled eggs, cheese, and peppers; great for lunch if you fill with pizza toppings and sauce; great for dessert if you fill with marshmallows, chocolate sauce, and peanut butter!), they’re so malleable!
