Monday was the last day of vacation for me, and I woke up to pink skies. I know they say red skies in the morn, sailor be warned, but the day ended up sunny and cold! But the sky was kind of cool looking.
So for last day of vacation, I batched cooked, made dessert, made appetizers and made other treats to help me throughout the week. I made so many good things, I wasn’t sure what to share with you, but I decided on sharing a treat that I just love! Crab Wontons!
I have to admit, I love PF Changs, but I haven’t been there in over two years. Every since I lost my weight I haven’t gone, to many calories for me. One of my favorite dishes at PF Changs is the Crab Wontons. There so good. So with much researching on the Internet, I have found several recipes for Crab Wontons, and ended combining my own. I think they turned out perfect! I made 12, and there gone in 5 minutes flat!
I used Won Ton Wrappers found in the produce department of the grocery store. I actually bought the won tons a couple of months ago and froze them. Took them out in the morning and by afternoon they were ready to be used. I can’t wait to see what else I can create with them.
These Crab Won Tons took only a few minutes to make and oddly enough I had everything on hand to make them. I used a mini muffin pan, sprayed with cooking spray, place the wrapper in them and add your crab mixture. Bake for 15 minutes and your done. I know I should of posted this for New Years, but I think you can have appetizers anytime of the year! I’d rather eat a bunch of little things then one big meal. As you may know I am a snacker and these fall perfect into my snacker category!
Crab Wonton – Adapted from My Baking Addiction
1 can 6 oz. white crabmeat, drained and chopped (I used Trader Joe’s)
4 oz. fat free cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons reduced fat mayonnaise
1/4 tsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. onion powder
fresh ground pepper to taste
12 won ton wrappers
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a medium bowl, combine crab meat, cream cheese, mayonaise, soy sauce, garlic, onion powder, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
3. Place 1 won ton wrapper in each 12 mini muffin cups. The edges of the won ton wrappers will extend beyond the mini muffin tin cups and may need to be folded slightly. Fill the center of each won ton cup with crab mixture.
4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until edges of cups are golden brown and filling is heated through.
