I don't know about you...but I am totally into WONTON WRAPPERS.
This little guys are so versatile...and they're LOW IN CALORIES!
I regularly use them in my cooking classes...they make the perfect "holder" for so many foods. Probably, the most popular appetizer I make with these little guys is my
Mango Chutney/Cream Cheese Bites...a twist on the classic southern appetizer.
To make a really great "holder", I use a fluted cookie cutter to cut each wrapper. Then I place it in either a tartlette pan or a mini-muffin pan (I use the Flexipans by Demarle at Home.). These are baked for about 6 minutes at 350 degrees, then popped out of the pans and cooled. When cooled, I fill them, then top with a garnish of coconut, green onion or chives, and chopped peanuts. I often make the wontons a day or so ahead and store them in an airtight container until I am ready to use them.
Here are a few more dishes I have made with
|Chili Lime Shrimp appetizers|
|Wonton cups with "Sheryl's Dip"|
(Mix a little mayo with sharp cheddar, black olives and green onion. Sheryl puts it on Triscuit crackers. Yum!)
|Southwestern Egg Rolls|
(The "rolls" are a Pinterest recipe. I liked it even better in the wonton cups (made in a Demarle Mini Muffin Flexipan or conventional mini muffin pan)! Great filling...and it makes a lot! Spicy!)
Give them a try...and please share YOUR recipes using Wonton Wrappers!!!
