48 wonton wrappers
1 1/2 cups white mushrooms, diced fine
1/2 cup yellow peppers, diced into small cubes
1 cup red peppers, diced into small cubes
1 cup onions, diced fine
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp garlic salt
14 oz (two 7 oz packages) of ultra thin sliced roast beef deli meat, chopped
1/2 cup parmigiano-reggiano
2 Tbsp butter (1 Tbsp to sauté veggies/1 Tbsp for roux)
1 Tbsp flour
3 cups milk
8 pre-cut sandwich slices of smoked provolone
2 scallions (green parts only)


Pre-heat oven to 375º F

Grease your mini muffin pan. Line the muffin pan with wonton wrappers. Set aside. 

Preheat sauté pan on medium-low with 1 Tbsp butter, garlic, and garlic salt. When butter has melted, place diced mushrooms, diced peppers (yellow and red), diced onion into sauté pan. Turn up heat to medium-high and cook for 3 minutes. Add the roast beef and parmigiano-reggiano to the vegetables and stir. Cook on medium-low for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Divide the Philly Cheesesteak mixture evenly in wonton lined muffin pan (it will be about a spoonful of the mixture for each wanton cup). Place in oven to cook for 15 minutes.

While wontons are cooking, in a sauté pan create a roux by melting 1 Tbsp butter on medium heat; once melted add 1 Tbsp of flour to melted butter. Stir butter and flour till completely blended; continue to stir consistently until it begins to bubble. You will know your roux is ready when it turns a light brown and has a slightly nutty smell. Do not overcook the roux as this will affect the flavor of your cheese sauce. Keeping the heat on medium, add 1/2 cup of milk to the roux, combine completely and stir or whisking continuously until your milk starts to thicken. Pour in the next 1/2 cup of milk, and stir continuously until your milk sauce starts to thicken again. Repeat, adding 1/2 cup each time, until all milk has been added. The thickened milk sauce should lightly coat the back of a spoon. Remove milk sauce from heat (turn off stove and take off hot burner) and add the smoked provolone cheese slices four at a time. Stir until cheese has melted into the milk sauce.

When the wontons have cooked for 15 minutes, remove from oven. Using a spoon pour the cheese sauce evenly over top of each wonton cup and place back in oven to cook for an additional 10 minutes.  Wontons edges should be nicely browned. 

Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes, add sliced green scallions and finish off with ground coarse black pepper. Serve!
