French Dip "Cupcakes"

I don't know about you but I'm addicted to Pinterest; I spend endless hours pouring over pictures of food, fashion and funny quotes. While wasting time  perusing Pinterest I came upon this fun and quirky idea, mealtime cupcakes!! They looked so cute and sounded so yummy that I had to give them a try. They came together super quick and the smell in my kitchen while they were baking was divine!  If you are interested in finding me on Pinterest here's my link 

12 oz deli roast beef, thinly sliced and chopped into pieces 
4 Laughing Cow Light Swiss wedges, chopped
1/3 c Au Jus gravy (I used Heinz which comes in a jar by the other gravy)
16 wonton wrappers (typically found in the produce section)
4 oz (1 cup) reduced fat 2% shredded mozzarella cheese

    Pre-heat the oven to 375. Lightly mist 9 cups in a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
    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 Au Jus sauce.
    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 mozzarella cheese evenly over the top of each cup. Press another wonton wrapper on top and repeat the layering steps with the remaining ingredients.
   Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes before removing from muffin tin.
