French Dip Bites

Football season is upon us…and as I searched for something fun and clever to make last Sunday, I came across this wonderful recipe which are similar to miniature French Dip sandwiches. All you need is FIVE ingredients, a muffin pan, a microwave and about twenty five minutes (prep/bake time). Sounds easy, right? Well, check out my recipe called French Dip Bites {adapted from Emily Bites}.


1/4 lb deli roast beef, thinly sliced and chopped into pieces (I just buy whatever is on sale)
4 Laughing Cow Light Swiss wedges, chopped (I used 5, since I am all about cheese on everything!)
1/3 c Au Jus gravy (I used the powder kind you add water to – any brand!)
16 wonton wrappers (typically found in the produce section – the source for many meals in our house these days!)
4 oz (1 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Lightly mist a muffin pan (or two, depending on how much you make) with cooking spray and set aside. My recipe actually made 12 – but could make more depending on how much mixture you put in each one – also I did not layer mine, which is another option as well.
  2. In a medium sized (microwave safe) bowl, combine the roast beef, swiss cheese wedges and Au Jus gravy. Microwave on high for 2 – 3 minutes (please note: times may vary depending on how HOT your microwave gets). You will want to make sure the swiss cheese is melted and the beef is covered in both the Au Jus and cheese.
  3. Place a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each cup in your muffin pan ~ this was my daughters’ favorite step!
  4. Spoon a little over a tablespoon of the meat/cheese/au jus mixture into each cup – then top with mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes, depending on how brown you want them to be. Let cool for about 5 minutes before removing from tin.
  6. Serve with extra sauce, crackers, rice, fresh veggies, you name it!
My husband and my girls (surprisingly!!) loved this recipe! My husband thought it tasted very similar to Quizno’s Double Cheese Steak sandwich, and my girls couldn’t get enough of the Au Jus gravy! I loved it SOO much that I shared it with all of my closest friends, family and all of you too! And I made it last night for dinner too! Yum!!
This would be such a fun appetizer or holiday item to bring – just be sure you serve them somewhat warm, as when they get too cold, they aren’t as scrumptious. Let me know how you and your family like this recipe!

  1. I’ve made these once already…SUPER GOOD!!! Just a quick question….with the powered au jus did you add the water as directed and use all of it?

  2. I am so glad you liked them! I only used about half of the sauce, and used the other half for dipping. But depending on, how many you make, you could use all of it. Hope that helps!

  3. These look scrumptious! Will be making these :)

  4. Fun idea for an appetizer- I love french dips from Arby’s! Making me hungry!

  5. It’s so fun when we come up with a recipe that makes everyone happy! I’m the same way, I share with everyone and make it over and over ;-)

    great recipe!

  6. Visiting from Inspiration Monday party. I have an entire case of wonton wrappers so I desperately need some reason to use them up!!

  7. What a great idea! This would be a huge a hit! Would love for you to come over and share at my link party

    Come Back Soon,
