Bacon Cream Cheese Stuffed Wontons

I know it’s August, but I’ve been testing new tailgating recipes recently. Even though it’s blazing hot and doesn’t feel like football season, it’s just a couple of weeks away. We take our football and tailgating seriously around here, and by ‘around here’ I mean in the SEC. It’s pretty much a religion.

I was stuck in a rut last year, taking Muffuletta and Rocky Road Brownies weekly to our tailgate. Contrary to popular belief, we don’t fry everything here… just most of it. (haha) No, seriously, I rarely fry anything. When we do fry, I ask Big Daddy to do it outside on the grill side burner. You can’t get the fried smell out of your house!

Imagine biting into a crispy, golden-brown pocket filled with creamy, savory goodness—that’s what you get with these Bacon Cream Cheese Stuffed Wontons. They’re a perfect blend of crispy textures, smoky bacon, and creamy cheese, making them an absolute delight for your taste buds.

Taste and Texture

These wontons offer a delightful contrast of textures and flavors. The crunchiness from the fried wonton wrappers perfectly complements the smooth, melted cream cheese inside. The addition of crispy bacon bits brings a savory, smoky richness that pairs wonderfully with the slight kick of heat from the Sriracha sauce. It’s a flavor explosion that’s hard to resist!

Cooking Tips

Making these stuffed wontons is simpler than you might think. Mix the softened cream cheese, crumbled bacon, sliced green onions, and Sriracha sauce in a bowl. Lay out the wonton wrappers and spoon a small amount of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each wrapper. Moisten the edges with water, fold them into triangles, and press the edges firmly to seal. Heat the vegetable oil in a pan and fry the wontons until golden brown and crispy.

Bacon Cream Cheese Wontons FAQ:

Can I bake these wontons instead of frying them?

Yes, absolutely! If you prefer a healthier option, you can bake these stuffed wontons in a preheated oven at around 375°F (190°C) for about 12-15 minutes, or until they turn golden and crispy.

Can I make these ahead of time?

Definitely! You can prepare the wontons and store them in the refrigerator for a few hours before frying or baking. If you’re planning to store them for longer, it’s better to freeze them on a baking sheet in a single layer before transferring them to a sealed container or bag. This way, they won’t stick together, and you can fry or bake them straight from the freezer when ready.

What dipping sauce goes well with these wontons?

The accompanying sauce is a perfect match! Simply whisk together soy sauce, honey, and rice wine vinegar to make it. It adds a sweet and tangy flavor that complements the wontons’ savory and slightly spicy taste. You can also use sweet chili sauce or a mix of soy sauce and sesame oil for dipping.
