Wonton Cheese Poppers Recipe

One of my favorite restaurant appetizers is fried cream cheese wontons. They are so creamy and the perfect amount of crunch. The amazing thing is there is not alot at goes into making them: a few easy to find ingredients and make 15 minute cook time for a large batch. These little yummies are best served as a party snack {hot} or along side of stir-fry dinner.

    Yummy recipe and a great addition to Chinese or stir frys or for a snack. My husband and I both love cream cheese poppers. I would want the extra peppers and my husband just likes his plain, but this way we both could have ours the way we want.

    I had no idea that you could buy wonton wraps – this beats buying pre-made, frozen wontons, as you can manipulate the cheese-to-wrap ratio!

  47. Joyce Ackley says:

    These look so good. I love cheese, and the blend of cheeses sounds especially tasty. I’m not sure the jalapeno peppers would be my favorite flavor, but the cream cheese should cut the hotness and provide a soothing., smooth texture. I am surprised the recipe seems so easy for a gourmet-sounding product.

  48. Why do I always read these before breakfast?! now I could skip straight to lunch!

  49. cole marie mckinnon says:
