I’ve tried these before (see this post) but thought I’d take another stab at them. This time with pictures!
I went recipe-free but did add the mayonnaise that so many recipes seemed to include. I used:
8 oz Neufchatel cheese
¼ cup light mayo
6 oz imitation crab
Dash onion powder
Dash garlic powder
16 won ton wrappers
Pretty nasty-looking jar of mayo, huh? Just keepin’ it real, people.
I chopped up the crab but am thinking it doesn’t look right, maybe I will try canned crab next time.
I used a hand potato-masher-smasher to mix this since I didn’t plan far enough ahead of time to soften the cheese. It worked out pretty well I think.
Then I placed the won ton wrappers gently into a muffin-tin sprayed with non-stick stuff. I love that tin, it was a present from one of the sisters last year. Thanks Nancy!
Then I baked them for 20 or 30 minutes at 350. I usually check them occasionally and pull them out of the oven when the won ton wrappers turn a little beyond golden brown. I lost track of the time they were baking because I was making steamed pork dumplings at the same time. Tune back in tomorrow for the dumpling recipe and those pictures!
I think they’re pretty cute. I left them open because there was so much filling; I still had some left over; I will probably use it for salad. I think I like them better left open like this, but next time I make a batch I will close them up and take some more pictures for you. I still need to tweak them; they are yummy but don’t taste quite like the crab rangoon from a Chinese restaurant. Maybe it will help if I remember the green onions next time.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a kitchen to clean. Raw pork freaks me out.
