Baked Crab Rangoon

Baked Crab Rangoon Recipe

Servings: 8 (makes 24 Crab Rangoons)      Prep Time: 10 minutes      Cook Time: 10 minutes

Recipe adapted from Kraft. Feel free to experiment with this recipe - I also like adding a spoonful of sriracha for a spicy version. For an even easier version, you can use Athens pre-made fillo mini shells found in the freezer section. It's perfect for Crab Rangoon.

Ingredients:

1 package refrigerated wonton skins (24 skins)
Cooking spray
8 ounces cooked crab meat, canned or fresh
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup Philadelphia Cream Cheese 1/3 Less Fat, softened to room temperature
1 tablespoon reduced fat mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 stalk green onion, thinly sliced for garnishOptional: Mild Chili Threads for garnish

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Spray both sides of the wonton wrapper with cooking spray and place snugly into muffin pan. Bake for 7-8 minutes until the edges are beginning to get golden brown and crisp. If you are having trouble getting the edges to brown, use tongs to remove the wonton cups and place them directly on the oven rack to bake for 1-2 minutes. They should crisp up nicely.

2. While the wonton skins are baking, in a large bowl, add the crab meat and mix gently with the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Delicately mix in the cream cheese, mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce. Taste and add additional salt or Worcestershire sauce if needed.

3. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of filling into each wonton cup. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 4 minutes (or you may serve as-is, just a little chilled). Garnish with green onion slivers or Mild Chili Threads.
