Happy New Year!
We are so close to starting off a new year which for us, will include a lot of changes. We are headed off to a dressy party with good friends and I’ll be taking over an appetizer as I did last year. This year I selected a recipe that I have made before, one I found years ago on a box of Land O’Lakes butter.
It’s VERY easy, and good as written, even though, as you will see in the pictures, today I substituted roasted red peppers and marinated artichoke hearts.
As always, I got out my ingredients:
Have a great evening and a wonderful start to the new year!
Cook 18-20 minutes ∙ Makes 32 appetizers ∙ Difficulty Easy ∙ Source Land o’Lakes
- 36 won ton wrappers, 3½” squares
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- ¼ cup red bell pepper, chopped
- 14 ounces artichoke hearts, drained, chopped
- parsley, fresh, chopped (optional)
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 36 miniature muffin cups with no-stick cooking spray. Gently press 1 won ton wrapper into each muffin cup, allowing ends to extend above cups. Spray edges of wrappers with no-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Combine cheese, cream cheese, ground red pepper and mustard in medium bowl; mix well. Stir in bell pepper and artichoke hearts. Spoon about 1 tablespoon cheese mixture into each cup.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until cheese mixture is set and edges of wrappers are lightly browned. Garnish with parsley, if desired. Serve warm.
