Prep/total time: 30 minutes | Yield: 1 dozen
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1-1/2 pounds ground beef
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces each) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Additional pizza sauce, optional
In a large bowl, combine the egg, pizza sauce, bread crumbs and Italian seasoning. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Divide between 12 greased muffin cups; press onto the bottom and up the sides. Fill center with cheese.
Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Serve immediately with additional pizza sauce if desired. Or cool, place in freezer bags and freeze for up to 3 months.
TO USE FROZEN PIZZA CUPS: Thaw in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Heat on a microwave-safe plate on high for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
