Cheese Wonton Recipes
Wontons with Ile de France Cheeses are a simple to make treat that adds a crisp crunch to our fresh, creamy fromage. A fusion of French and Asian ingredients, they will wow guests. They also make a delicious snack, simple appetizer or side dish.
Individual dumplings filled with savory fillings, Wontons are made with dough wrappers that are small, square-shaped and light. Our Brie and Goat Cheeses are ideal fillings. Their natural flavors will ooze out from the airy crispness of the wrappers after the wontons are fried or baked.
How to Make Simple Goat Cheese or Brie Cheese Wontons
- Put small squares of fromage (about an inch wide) in the middle of each wonton wrapper. Close the square wrapper diagonally, then seal the edges with a bit of moisture, pressing hard so it won't come apart.
- To fry, heat about two inches of oil in a medium sized pot. Use sesame oil to give it an authentic, Asian flare that won't interfere with the cheese's natural flavors. Place the wontons in the heated oil for about 30 seconds or until they reach your desired crispiness.
- To bake, arrange the wontons on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees until they reach a crisp golden brown (about 8-10 minutes).
Tips to add more flavors
- Small, flavorful additions can easily be added to the cheese: chives, scallions, caramelized onions and chutney are all delicious with Brie.
- For Goat Cheese, honey creates a naturally sweet and savory flavor combination.
- If adding ingredients make sure to use less cheese so the wonton wrappers don't burst!
- Accompaniments can be served as sides and dips. Serve minced meats and chili peppers on the side for some added zest. Soy and sweet and sour sauces are classic wonton dips.
