I picked up some Wonton wrappers at the store the other day... thought it might be fun to make a few different fillings and give them a try!
I removed the casing from one link of Italian sausage and browned it with some black pepper and granulated garlic. I added about one-half package of chopped, frozen spinach, which I'd cooked, drained and cooled.
After the filling had completely cooled, I put about a teaspoon of the mixture into the middle of a Wonton wrapper, topped it with a little grated Parmesan, wet the edges and folded it up, pressing the edges together so they would adhere.
I browned two tablespoons of butter in a frying pan and quickly fried the Wontons until they were golden and crispy. Browning butter is easy... put a few tablespoons into a pan over medium heat. The butter will foam up then settle down and start to turn color. Watch it carefully so it doesn't burn... it can happen fast!
I just can't tell you how good these were! I wish you would try them! I think these would make a great party appetizer - alone or with a dipping sauce.
I had so many Wonton wrappers left in the package, I decided to experiment. Although you can't really tell from this picture, I filled some with mini-chocolate chips & walnuts; one with prepared mincemeat; and one with peanut butter & mini-chocolate chips. I fried them using cooking spray and sprinkled a little powdered sugar on top. They were good!
And finally, I fried (using only non-stick cooking spray) a couple of wrappers flat then dusted them with powdered sugar and drizzled a little chocolate syrup over them. A nice little treat!
