leftover wonton skins

I made potstickers and I have about 24 left. Any thoughts how to use them up?

  1. Ravioli for two .... any savory filling you might enjoy
    A dozen fruit filled ravioli for dessert .... You can boil, steam or deep fry; your choice. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

      i second ravioli... if you want to stay in the Asian themed sphere, do something in that vein. a few weeks ago for a friend's birthday, per request, i made Kung Pao Chicken/Shrimp Ravioli.

      they're also sort of yummy fried and rolled in cinnamon sugar (with a dash of cardamom)

      they can also be a fun soup topper or pizza topper when fried

    2. Wonton chips. Cut into triangles, spray with Pam. Can be made sweet with cinnamon and sugar or savory with salt and pepper. Bake until crispy.

      Wonton cups. Press into mini muffin cups. Spray with pam. Bake until crisp. Fill or use to scoop up salsa.

        If you want to do the muffin-cup thing, do a websearch for "Baked Crab Rangoon" or "Baked Wonton Crab Rangoon". There are a number of good recipes out there where you add a simple crab & cream cheese mixture to the wonton wrappers before you bake them in the muffin pan. Good stuff.

      2. Slice into strips and fry in 1 inch of hot oil (or deep fryer if you have one). Tastes great as a crouton-replacer in salads.

        1. If you don't want to use them right away, you can simply wrap them tightly & well in plastic wrap & freeze them. Then when you want to use them, thaw them out in the fridge. Will be just fine.

          1. See this thread on the same subject that I started about one year ago.
