  1. We make these quite often for catering events and they always go quickly. We use Pepperidge farm puff pastry cut to fit the mini tins which give the crust a flakier consistancy. We make some with sour cream and some without for those who don't like it. Good recipe! Thanks for sharing.
  2. These are tasty little gems. I used Italian spicy sausage and a medium salsa. These are great for appie night at our house. I baked the wonton wrappers for 2 minutes. Then the remaining bake time was 8 minutes. The wontons were very crispy. I will be making these again!! Made for May flower challenge in the cooking photo forum. Thanks ms bold for sharing this recipe.
  3. We really enjoyed these, even my daughter who usually hates salsa. I've made them several times since I first found this recipe, usually switching the cheeses to whatever I have in the house (white cheddar is good in these). We really like the way the wonton wrappers crisp up and are crunchy. Anyway, these are quick and easy to make (and eat!), definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing, ms_bold.
  4. I made this with ground sausage and it was good, but I think onions/mushrooms/bell peppers sauteed as a filling would be a nice meatless option. I also sprinkled a bit of cheese on top of each one before popping in the oven. I could not find pre-cut wonton wrappers!! I used phyllo dough, which made it more time consuming b/c I had to cut it, but it worked well also. They were a hit at my New Year's party and yummy - will make again! Thanks!
