Mini Lasagnes

Lasagne is one of those comfort foods, which I don’t make often enough and still being in the mood of wanting to make everything into individual portions plus remembering that I originally saw the idea for mini Lasagnes on Can You Stay For Dinner‘s blog, I set to work on making my version of Mini Lasagnes.  Using spring roll wrappers instead of pasta, gave these little lasagne’s an extra treat of crispy ears, although the very dark picture does them no justice.

Mini Lasagnes

Ingredients

1 medium onion sliced
75g mushrooms sliced
250g mince
5ml dried origanium
5ml vegetable spice
2 tomatoes roughly chopped
1 small carrot scraped and grated
60ml red wine
30ml chutney
30ml tomato sauce (ketchup)
Salt and black pepper to taste

White Sauce
60ml butter
60ml flour
1½ cups milk
Salt and pepper to taste

6 spring roll wrappers each cut into 4 = 24 pieces

1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Method

  1. Fry the onion and mushrooms in a little butter until soft.
  2. Add the mince and fry until browned.
  3. Add all the other ingredients and allow to cook until reduced and thickened.
  4. Melt the butter in a small pot and stir in the flour to form a roux.

  9. Line the tins with 2 wrappers each.
  10. Spoon half the mince on top of the wrappers.
  11. Spoon over half of the white sauce over the mince.
  12. Place the remaining wrappers on top of the white sauce.
  13. Spoon the remaining mince on top of the wrappers followed by the remaining white sauce.
  14. Place the cheese on top of all the lasagnes

  1. What a wonderful idea! Love the idea of using spring roll wrappers, as they would have a unique crunch effect!Love a creamy beschamel sauce! Divine mignon lasagna’s. x

  2. hmm what a great idea, I am finding more uses for wonton wrappers that I ever knew existed. These little mini lasagna would be a perfect appetizer or hors d’oeuvre!
    Thanks for the inspiration.
