Merry Christmas, foodies! If you’re like me and my family, you will be spending today eating Chinese food or some other kind of Asian cuisine, and going to the movies. This is the stereotypical day for a Jewish family that isn’t joining in on any Christmas celebrations. So in honor of this tradition, I made an Asian-inspired snack: Wonton Chips! This recipe originated from Dashing Dish. She suggests making a garlic-parmesan chip and a cinnamon-sugar chip. I made the cinnamon-sugar, an Old Bay spiced chip, and a parmesan-Italian spiced chip. My favorite out of the three was definitely the parmesan-Italian mixture. The cheese I used was Italian Pecorino, which has a pretty strong flavor to it. It complemented the Italian spice blend for a very sharp taste.
I quadrupled the amount of chips by cutting each Wonton wrapper into fours. The wrappers as a whole are pretty large, so quartering them gives you a lot of little chips rather than a small amount of larger ones. This allowed me to make a good number of each kind. The fun part is coming up with different toppings to use! Mix your preferred ingredients together in a Ziplock bag and then spoon and sprinkle onto each chip.
The recipe says to put them in the oven for 10-15 minutes, but when I did this they burnt pretty badly. This could be because I altered the size of the chips. It’s a good thing I had enough wrappers to make another batch because these were completely inedible. The second time around I only kept them in the oven for about 6-8 minutes. My advice is to simply put them in the oven and keep an eye on them. When you see the edges start to crisp and turn brown, that’s when you should take them out. This is a great snack to serve at holiday parties all season long. Serve them alone or with a dip that pairs well with whatever topping you’ve chosen to use. Enjoy!
