Wonton Wrapper Experiment #3: Dessert chips

Well this one is fast and simple.

We (my kids and I) brushed melted butter onto the wonton wrappers, sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar , cut them into strips and baked them in a 400 degree oven for about 8 minutes.

They were pretty tasty with the redi whip 🙂 but I think I would like it better fried instead of baked.

Still it was a very fast/simple/ kid friendly snack 🙂

Wonton Wrapper Experiment #2: Spinach Ravioli

Trying out my Wonton Wrappers again I made a Spinach and Cheese Ravioli. It was pretty simple but time consuming… Then again aren’t all homemade Raviolis?

Spinach and Cheese Wonton Wrapper Ravioli

1 bunch of spinach (chopped)
1 TB butter
1 Garlic clove Minced
1 cup Mozzerella
1/4-1/2 cup parmesean cheese
Wonton wrappers
water
and a touch of nutmeg (because I heard somewhere it was good to do lol)

Heat butter in a skillet with garlic till melted. Add spinach, If you forget to chop it (lol like me) its ok you can use scissors later. Saute till it gets all small and limp like.

Combine the cheese and nutmeg with the slightly cooled spinach. Place about a tablespoon (or less if you are using one wrapper) into wrappers. Wet the edges of the wrappers with water and either fold over into a triangle or place another wrapper on top( with wet edges) and seal with a fork (see picture).

You can let the Raviolis hang out in the fridge covered for about 2 hours or cook them now. Just add the Raviolis one at a time so they dont stick together in the beginning  to a pot of boiling water and boil for about 2-3 minutes. I was able to fit about 6-8 in my pot at the same time.

We served it with a Tomato pasta sauce, although it could be served with Pesto, Alfredo or a creamy garlic butter. There are many possibilities with this one.

I would say the only draw back I saw was the raviolis are really big when you use two wrappers for one ravioli. I think next time (especially for the kids) I will make them with one wrapper folded like a triangle.

I hope you enjoy Wonton Wrapper experiment #2 with me. 🙂 It certainly was yummy!

Wonton Wrapper Experiment #1: Pizza

I had this crazy Idea to do an experiment with wonton wrappers, mainly because I have never used them before and thought they might be quite useful. So I went out and bought a package and started my experiment.

The first thing I tried. Wonton Wrapper Pizza! We had make your own pizza night  last night and had some ingredients left so me and my son whipped up a quick snack.

It was quick the recipe is simple

  • 8 wonton wrappers
  • 8 pepperoni slices
  • 1 string cheese (cut in half, then in each half quartered)
  • olive oil for pan
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • pizza sauce for dipping

Heat up medium skillet, Add oil. Lay out 8 wrappers, place on slice of pepperoni in the middle of each followed by 1 piece of cheese. Wet your finger and run along the edges of each wrapper to get wet. Fold in half. Place them all in the skillet ( or in batches if needed). Brown on both side about a minute each. Remove from heat and pour the rest of the water in pan putting lid on as fast as you can. (watch out for splattering) Let sit about a minute then remove cool and enjoy 🙂

This was super simple, my kids said it was the best snack ever! You gotta love that.
