My wish came true – college football has finally arrived! Not only has it arrived, but my beloved Auburn Tigers beat Louisville last weekend too! So I’m sure everyone has their own favorite team. Rah-Rah, sis boom ba! And there is no better way to watch college football at home (or a friend’s home) than with some good tailgating foods.
This is one of my personal favorite recipes, not only for tailgating, but I will make up a batch for dinner when my husband is working. They are healthy, full of protein, low on carbs, and best of all, YUMMY! If you have ever ordered the crab rangoons at a chinese restaurant, then you will love these. They are super easy to make, and only take a few ingredients too!
12 wonton wrappers (these are found in the organic section of the produce department at your grocery)
1/2 block of fat-free or reduced fat cream cheese – softened (you can nuke it for about 20-40 seconds to do this)
1/2 cup of crab meat, shredded (imitation crab works fine too)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp Soy Sauce (reduced sodium is best)
1 pinch of garlic powder
1 tbsp onion flakes
Preheat oven to 375, spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a bowl, mix all ingredients with a fork until well blended (it will be very lumpy). Place your baking sheet next to your sink and take a regular soup spoon and spoon ingredients on to center of wonton wrapper and then fold shut corner to corner and wet your fingers before pinching to seal (the water is what keeps it together). Place each one about an inch apart on your baking sheet. Pop in to the oven and bake approximately 12-18 minutes, depending on your oven’s cook time, checking to make sure they are brown and crisp, but not burned. Let sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
These things are beyond amazing. They are super easy, super good, and actually super healthy. Just make sure whoever you are serving doesn’t have any seafood allergies! Sometimes I will make a double or even triple batch, as they refrigerate well for a couple of days and reheat in the microwave in just a few seconds.
So, I will be showing you another piece of jewelry and maybe even a bit of crochet in the next post. Depends on my mood, my inclination, my motivation, and whether or not I can finish the darn thing!
