Found this in an old scrapbook, saved for trying one of these days. I like the concept of an unusual filling in a conventional package. These wontons can be used in a comporting soup, fried as and appetizer or steamed for dim sum.
I devised this recipe, using Rotel Tomatoes, when I moved to Louisiana, and friends complained that my old recipe was too bland. You can use any strength Rotel you like, but keep in mind, the longer these are frozen the hotter they will get. I always have these in my freezer for unexpected company.
Yummy!! This is something a little different and very tasty! Next time I'm planning on Making a HUGE batch, frying them and flash freezing them on cookie sheets so my husband and kids can heat them up when they want too, or so I have a ready made appetizer for unexpected guests!!
These are really easy, can be made ahead, frozen etc... and are quite tasty warm or cold. If you are intimidated by phyllo dough (don't be, phyllo is your friend, and very forgiving) you could use Crescent dinner rolls, rolled and cut into squares, for the pastry.
There are times when you want something somewhat elegant to throw into you guest menu...just a "plain" lunch can be prettier with this "puffs". They are not difficult and don't take up much space in your freezer. Put something like chicken salad, or ice cream with fresh berries on top. You could make smaller ones for appetizers with creative fillings. Freezer storage is around 1 month so these would be great to make ahead for a party.
Guests will think you spent hours preparing these appetizers. They are very pleasing to the eye and the taste of Brie, caramelized onions and caraway is delicious. Prep time is approximate and includes the 15 minute chill time.
I recommend doubling these; your guests will inhale them unless you beat them to it! Easy, delicious and addicting, this recipe was passed onto me by my Aunt Lisa. She served these on Xmas and they were devoured by our family, including my 4 y/o son who I think ate the most of us all.
Easy make-ahead and freeze appetizers that are always a hit. Although assembling the triangles takes a bit of time, the triangles are a great rainy day cooking project for school age kids. If making ahead, freeze before baking. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (September 1980)
These are mouthwatering. Make plenty for a weekend breakfast. It's worth the effort! They freeze well, too, and can be heated in the oven at 350 for about 12 - 14 minutes, or in the microwave for a few seconds if thawed (about 1 1/2 minutes if frozen). Very convenient for a grab and go breakfast.
I had this at a New Year's party and it was so good I had to get the recipe to share here. Can easily be divided into smaller amounts, frozen and re-heated in the oven or microwave. Fresh chopped onion can be substituted for the frozen and it is also good with chopped artichoke hearts added. Serve with crackers or melba toast.
These are yummy!! I make a batch or 2 and flash freeze on cookie sheet then freeze into ziplocks. Just heat in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350. You can use any toppings. I like to brush butter on a warm pretzel and sprinkle with garlic salt and parmesan cheese. You could also do cinnamon sugar. I love em with mustard best. These are pretty light and airy. Let them get dark on the outside for the best flavor. Enjoy!! Oh, I almost forgot, I do these in the Kitchen Aid mixer-- proof yeast mixture and add to dry ingredients in mixer bowl. Make sure you watch it until it forms a nice ball. I let knead on low for 8 minutes.
