Bacon and Cream Cheese Won Tons

These Cream Cheese and Bacon Wontons were so easy to make I can’t even comprehend why I haven’t made them before. I guess it’s because I didn’t realize that you can get the wonton wrappers in your local grocery store. Did you know that you could do that? Well I do now and I can tell you that while this was the first time I made Wontons it certainly won’t be my last!

First and foremost you want to open up two packages of Cream Cheese (8oz) and let it soften while you cook up the bacon! 

Next up is making the bacon!

Then you gotta flip it, make sure it’s nice and crispy!

When it’s all done drain it and lay it out to chop it up! 

Now that the cream cheese has softened you want to add the chopped up bacon to the cream cheese! 

So now you’re done with the filling, pretty easy huh?

Filling the wontons is even easier! My suggestion is to fill them all up and then fry them in batches! This recipe makes 50 wontons which is how many comes in the package! These are the kind I got!

I laid them all out flat on a cutting board and put a teaspoon of mix in the middle of each won ton. 

To seal you dip your finger in water and swipe along two edges of the won ton and take the corner of the edges that aren’t wet and bring it across to the other corner and seal by pressing down!
You can also make it ravioli style by wetting all four edges and placing another won ton wrapper on top like this:
Either way you decide to make your won tons you want to heat the oil on low to medium heat and have the won tons spend approximately 3-4 minutes on each side!


Any longer and it gets a little crispy…see?



But I quickly got the hang of it and they were coming out sooo good!

    Thats cool, I did not even think about pre-made won-ton wraps existing. I think you could cut the bacon in half and sub for its weight in imitation or real crab meat and maybe even shrimp to have a nice won-ton. Thanx for the inspiration, has my wheels turning.
