Baked Crab Rangoon

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on August 2, 2010

OK, you got me, this is an encore recipe.

BUT.

This time, I have pics this time.

They will make your mouth water.

Make your tummy growl.

Send your craving for Chinese food go into over drive.

First you start with some tasty ingredients, a little crab, some green onions and a few spices.

Mix in some oh-so-creamy cream cheese.

Add a dab or two to a wonton wrapper.

[singlepic id=503 w=450]

Pinch it. Ever so gently.

[singlepic id=504 w=450]

Pinch again.

[singlepic id=505 w=450]

Bake to golden brown perfection.

Baked Crab Rangoon

1/3 package imitation crab meat (not the kind in a can)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened (I used fat-free)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 green onion, chopped
half of a 14 ounce package wonton wrappers (about 16 wrappers)

Preheat oven to 350º. Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.

Combine the cream cheese, garlic powder, paprika and green onion in a bowl, mix until soft and well mixed. Lightly stir in the flaked imitation crab meat. Add as much or as little as you like.

Place approximately 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture in the center of the wonton wrappers. Wet wrapper edges with water, fold over the mixture and pinch to seal.

Place the filled wontons on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, until the wonton edges turn brown and crisp. Serve immediately.

You can also freeze these little guys. After they have been prepared, wrap the uncooked wontons in plastic and foil and pop them in the freezer. When a craving strikes, and it will, trust me, allow the to thaw at room temperature for about 1 hour, then bake as directed above. You’ll never know the difference.

Yay! I’m so glad you posted this! I love (LOVE.) crab rangoon, but don’t need the salty Chinese food to go with it. I’m definitely going to try this!

@Mary @ Giving Up on Perfect, These are definitely less salty than normal Chinese food. And a little better for you, since they aren’t fried. Let me know what you think if you get a chance to try them.

Remember how they said that nobody could eat 50 eggs, but Cool Hand Luke did? Well, I could eat 500 crab rangoon.

Cheers,

Oh wow, those look amazing! I love crab rangoons but have never thought to make them on my own. And these are so much healthier since they are baked. Thanks for sharing the recipe! :)

Are they really this easy? I regularly crave crab rangoons and send my husband off to the local takeout. If I could make them at home–especially baking them instead of frying–well, this may change my life forEVER!

They do take some time to assemble, but they are totally worth it. Enjoy them!

Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and
let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.

I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two
different browsers and both show the same outcome.
