Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8 cups of a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
Evenly place wrappers flat on a clean, dry surface. Spray each wrapper three times with butter spray, and use your fingers to evenly spread butter. Gently flip wrappers and repeat.
Carefully transfer wrappers to the pan, placing each in a muffin cup and pressing to form the cup shape. Bake in the oven until firm and lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
Prepare bacon according to package directions, either in the microwave or in a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray. Once cool enough to handle, chop and set aside.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine cheese wedge and cream cheese. Stir until blended. Warm in the microwave, about 15 seconds, and then stir again. Set aside.
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. Add mushrooms and, stirring occasionally, cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add egg substitute, salt, and scallions. Scramble until mostly cooked. Slowly fold in cheese mixture and continue to scramble until fully cooked.
Remove from heat and stir in chopped bacon. Evenly distribute egg mixture among the baked wonton cups. Serve warm. If you like, season to taste with pepper and additional salt. Yum!
