PC Shrimp Wontons
This is a Pampered Chef recipe that I like for quick and easy appetizers. You can substitute chicken for the shrimp and it's just as good.
24 square wonton wrappers
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
10 ounces shelled de-veined and cooked medium shrimp
2 green onions, finely chopped
1/3 cup grated carrot
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray mini-muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
With pastry brush, brush one side of each wonton wrapper with melted butter. Press wonton buttered side up into muffin cup. Bake 8 minutes or until edges turn light golden brown. Remove pan from oven.
Meanwhile, reserve 24 shrimp. Finely chop remaining shrimp. Combine cream cheese, garlic and Worcestershire sauce in bowl, blend well. Stir in chopped shrimp, green onions, carrot and mozzarella cheese. Using small scoop fill each wonton cup with rounded scoop of cream cheese mixture. Top with reserved shrimp. Bake 5 minutes or until wontons are golden brown and filling is bubbly around edges.
