These Mini Lasagna Cupcakes are the Perfect Savory Snack

My name is Amy and I grew up with mini lasagna cupcakes. My mom would put a little sauce, cheese, and meat on top of a prepped pastry. I would love to pick one of her cupcakes up and eat it, but Mom would always say, “No, no, no! You don’t want to ruin your clothes.”

Lasagna was one of my favorite dishes as a kid. I would sit at the kitchen table and watch my mom make it. Maybe it was because she was so good at it or maybe it was because I just loved the smell of lasagna, but regardless, I loved lasagna when I was growing up.

Once I got a little bit older, my mom started to make lasagna rolls. I would put them in the oven and they would come out so fluffy and cheesy. I always loved them, but I think I loved the mini lasagna cupcakes the most.

Mom would bake them in little cups like a mini lasagna, and they were always so delicious. I would eat them right out of the cupcake tin. I know that sounds so unhealthy, but I just couldn’t help myself.

I remember one time I was eating one of my mini lasagna cupcakes and I spilled some sauce on my shirt. I was so mad at myself. I wanted to go throw the cupcake tin across the room, but my mom was there to talk me out of it.

She told me that I needed to be careful because if I did that I would ruin my shirt. I thought she was being too strict, but now I know she was just trying to help me.

Even now, I love mini lasagna cupcakes just as much as I did when I was a kid. It’s a reminder of my childhood and all the memories that I shared with my mom. Lasagna was one of the most special things to us, and I’m glad I can still remember it years later.

  • 250 g beef mince
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons red wine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 small onion, grated
  • 30 small wonton wrappers
  • 1.25 cups smooth ricotta
  • 1 tin crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste


  • Preheat your oven to 200C / 400F / 180C fan forced. Lightly spray muffin tin with oil spray.
  • Cut 20 wonton wrappers into a circle using a large cookie cutter matching the size of the muffin holes or by cutting around an upturned glass.


  • Place a saucepan over medium heat, add a little oil, then add the onion and garlic and saute, stirring for about a minute.
  • Add beef mince and saute while breaking up with a wooden spoon until browned all over.
  • Add the red wine and bring it to a simmer for one minute before adding the rest of the sauce ingredients (tomatoes, milk, tomato paste oregano and salt) and mixing well. Simmer for another 5 minutes until thickened and remove from the heat.


  • In a small bowl, mix together the ricotta, parmesan, salt, and pepper.


  • Push one square wonton wrapper into the bottom of each muffin hole so that the points stick out the top.
  • Add roughly two teaspoons of meat sauce to each, then a teaspoon or so of ricotta mixture. Sprinkle over a little mozzarella then top with a round wonton wrapper and press down lightly.
  • Repeat these layers a second time, then on the the top wonton wrapper, spread over another teaspoon or so of the ricotta mix, then sprinkle over the remaining mozzarella.
  • Bake for 20-24 minutes or until golden and the edges are crunchy.
  • Let them cool for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh parsley or pesto.
  • I like to sit them on a sheet of paper towel before transferring to plates to soak up any oil which may still be clinging to the outside.
