Whole Foods – Bacon Cream Cheese Wontons
When my husband and I bought our house we closed on a Friday, and by Sunday night he was driving six hours east to Nebraska to work on a hospital addition for a year. We spent the first year in our home apart and it was the hardest year of our relationship, hands down! I was working 10 hour days for another construction company at the time and I would come home in the evenings and just be sad. Being the “I wear too many hats” person that I am, I decided to take up another job in the evenings for fun and girl time. I ended up working at a freezer meal preparation place. (Insert irony here) I mostly worked greeting customers, prepping food and organizing pickups. It was a lot of fun and a good way for me to get out. When the holidays came we had a special appetizer menu where customers could come in and order freezer friendly appetizers for their holiday gatherings. It was a HUGE success. unfortunately I can’t recall hardly any of the recipes except these. And I’ve been making them obsessively ever since.
Bacon Cream Cheese Wontons
Kelly @ Onceamonthmom.com
- 8 ounces cream cheese preferably organic, softened
- 5-6 slices bacon, preferably organic, cooked
- 24 wonton wrappers (Can be found in either your vegetable section near tofu or with the dairy products)
- 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 Tablespoons water
Preheat oven to 375. Combine the softened cream cheese and bacon together in a small bowl. Arrange your wonton wrappers on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place approximately 1 teaspoon of cream cheese filling in the middle of each square. Combine cornstarch and water in a separate bowl. Then with a small pastry brush or a cotton swab, spread the cornstarch mixture on two of the edges of the square. Fold the wonton over to form a triangle and push the middle to try to keep the bubbling to a minimum. Repeat with remaining wontons until all filling is gone. Bake at 375 for about 10-12 minutes until golden brown on the edges and slightly crispy.
Prepare as directed above. Place uncooked into freezer bag and freeze until ready to serve. TO SERVE: Thaw. Arrange your wonton wrappers on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 for about 10-12 minutes until golden brown on the edges and slightly crispy.
Servings: 6 people – 24 wontons
