Ingredients

  • 8 ounces whipped cream cheese
  • 6 ounces white crab meat drained and flaked
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Wonton wrappers
  • Pepper jelly for serving

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, crab meat, mayonnaise, and green onions. Whisk together egg and water in a small bowl to make an egg wash.
  • Working in batches, arrange 5 – 10 wonton wrappers on a clean, dry surface. Brush all 4 edges of each wrapper with the egg wash using a pastry brush or your finger.
  • Place 1 rounded teaspoon of cream cheese filling in the center of each wonton wrapper. To wrap, first lift and press the seams of 2 opposing corners together over the filling. Then, lift the remaining 2 opposing corners and bring them also to the middle to form a small parcel. Press all seams together and fold over the top where all 4 corners meet. If the wrapper does not seem to stick, apply additional egg wash. Repeat with all remaining wonton wrappers and filling.
  • To fry, heat oil to 375°F in a deep fryer or a stock pot. Do not let the temperature greatly exceed 375°F or the oil may smoke and then burst into flame. Fry the wontons in small batches for 15 – 20 seconds or until golden brown. Remove immediately and drain on paper towels.
  • To bake, preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 24 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray. Place 1 filled wonton wrapper in each cup. Bake until the edges are golden brown and the filling is heated through, about 18 – 20 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
  • Serve hot with pepper jelly.
