This is the only way I will eat cream cheese. I thought I would try it, because I love won tons and the kids love cream cheese. Try it, it's onolicious! I usually use a little bit of beaten egg to seal the won ton skins into their package shape.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 (6.5 ounce) can minced clams
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 (8 ounce) cans water chestnuts, drained
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 (14 ounce) package small won ton wrappers
- 3 cups vegetable oil for frying
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, clams, green onions, water chestnuts, paprika and ground black pepper. Place about 1 teaspoon of filling into the won ton skin and seal corner to corner forming a triangle.
In a large skillet, heat oil to a high temperature. Fry the won tons until they are browned on both sides. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
