If you want to whip up something special to serve with wine or cocktails, consider this French-Asian fusion treat: wontons filled with Brie or goat cheese. Crisp, crunchy wrappers filled with hot, creamy cheese, they can also be served as an appetizer.
The recipe is from cheese importer Ile de France, which has plenty of cheese recipes on its website.
1. PLACE squares of cheese in the middle of each wonton wrapper. Close the square wrapper diagonally, then seal the edges with a bit of moisture, pressing hard so it won’t come apart.
2. FRY: Heat about two inches of oil in a medium sized pot. Use some sesame oil to give it an authentic, Asian flare that won’t interfere with the cheese’s natural flavors. Sesame oil is strong, so we used 1/3 sesame oil, 2/3 vegetable oil.
3. PLACE the wontons in the heated oil for about 30 seconds or until they reach the desired crispiness.
4. BAKE by arranging the wontons on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400°F until they become crisp and golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
5. SERVE with your favorite dipping sauce. Ile de France uses warmed sour cream flavored with a little Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
You can add extra ingredients, but be sure to use less cheese so the wonton wrappers don’t burst.
