Mini Taco Bites
1 lb browned ground round
Taco Seasoning (Or other flavor you like)
Cheese & other toppings
Start by browning your beef (or you can use chicken). When cooking with ground beef I prefer to use ground round because it is leaner and has a good flavor. Once the beef is browned then add your seasoning of choice and follow instructions amount of water to add.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
If using eggroll wrappers quarter it with a pizza wheel or knife. Put into muffin pan (for this recipe I used mini muffin pans for a more bite sized appetizer). This should make a cup like look with the sides higher than the muffin pan. If the sides of the wrappers are not higher than the muffin pan you need to cut them a little larger.
Put ground round (or whatever seasoned meat you decide to use) into the eggroll/wonton “cups”. Top with shredded cheese (cream cheese might also be good).
Bake for about 15 minutes or until cups are brown and cheese is melted. Then top with your favorite toppings.
Funfetti Cake Dip
1 (18.9 oz) box Funfetti cake mix
2 cups fat-free plain yogurt
1 cup lite Cool Whip
Fat-free animal crackers
In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, plain yogurt and Cool Whip until completely combined and you see no more lumps. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to chill for about 4 hours. Garnish with additional sprinkles if desired and serve with animal crackers, enjoy!
Italian Pinwheels on a Stick
½ c. pizza sauce
Shredded Cheese (mozzarella works the best but can use cheddar)
Lollipop Sticks or Bamboo Skewers
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
On a sheet of wax paper roll out your can of dough (or you can make your own pizza dough from scratch if preferred). If using regular crescent rolls be sure to seal all the perforated marks by pressing together with your fingers.
Using a pizza wheel make small ¼ to ½ inch strips into the dough lengthwise. Do not move from the wax paper. Spread pizza sauce over the dough and smooth it evenly. Sprinkle cheese across.
Start rolling from one end to the other into a “wheel”. Secure the end with a tooth pick and place onto a baking sheet. This should yield about 12 for each can of dough.
Bake for about 8-12 minutes. When cool pull out the toothpick and replace with the sucker sticks/bamboo skewers (or forget the skewers all together and serve them as is).
