A friend of mine is getting married and we had a bridal shower for her this weekend. I love the opportunity to try new things at such gatherings, though I am sure most people prefer to try something new when it is just them – and not 15 other people! C’est la vie.

I love crispy wontons as an appetizer, and crab is tasty! I also love quick appies that can be prepared the night before, and then assembled just before needed. This is a combo of several different recipes I have tried over the years, and thought worked out pretty well – AND they look fancier than they actually are!



Ingredients:
24 square wonton wrappers
2 x 6 oz cans of crab, drained
4 oz softened creamcheese
3 green onions, chopped
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
cooking spray


Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium sized bowl combine: crab, creamcheese, 2 green onions, Worcestershire sauce and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
  3. Spray a mini-muffin tin with cooking spray.
  4. Gently place a wonton wrapper in each cup, and press down.
  5. Divide crab mixture, evenly amongst the 24 cups. Top with remaining Parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown and filling is heated through.
  7. Top with remaining green onion slices. Serve warm.

You can make filling the day before and then bake just before they are needed.
