Baked Crab Rangoon: An A+ Appetizer!

One of my favorite blogs is live.love.eat. I like it because the recipes are scrumptious and you don't need to be a rocket scientist to follow them : ). I know a lot of my readers thought I was a rocket scientist and I am VERY sorry to disappoint you!
live.love.eat participates in this fun thing called Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. I thought I would participate this week because my best friend Jen gave me a to-die-for recipe last week and I want to share it with the world!

Before I start, do you get the FREE magazine from Kraft called Food & Family? Go here to sign up if you don't : ). You are gonna LOVE it. (like CRAZY : )!
Jen got this recipe from there. I don't think the magazine has my WAY cool step by step pictures though, so I think you might as well read the recipe right here .

1. Gather 2 cans of 6 ounce crab meat, 8 ounces of cream cheese, 1/4 cup of thinly sliced green onions (I couldn't find any in my house...WHOOPS!), 1/2 cup Mayonnaise, 24 wonton wrappers.

2. Turn your oven on to 350.

3. Mix crab meat, cream cheese and mayonnaise together. Could this be any easier?



4. Spray a muffin tin. Maybe I should have been a rocket scientist : ). Look how good I am at this recipe. Whoooo Hoooo!


5. Press your little won ton wrappers in the muffin pan! Easy Peasy!


5. Put the crab cheesey mixture in the won tons. (I guess I forgot that picture. Please use your imagination : ).

6. Pop your pan into the oven for 18-20 minutes until the edges of the won tons get brown.

7. Pull the out of the oven and put them on a plate : ). How delish do these look?


8. Do Not Eat Them Right Away...like I did. Let them cool : ). Try to serve them warm. Or do whatever floats your boat. I served them at room temperature and my family GOBBLED them up.
9. Do not ask your husband to put them away at the end of the night. He will not carefully wrap them in tin foil or put them in a reusable container. He will throw the plate in the CRISPER drawer of the refrigerator. When you confront him the next day he will say, "I did put them away. You just said "away," how was I supposed to know you meant to put them in a special container. What is wrong with the crisper drawer? They fit, didn't they?"

Ha, ha! That's great. I don't eat seafood, but your appetizers look very pretty. Your last paragraph/photo was a hoot. Men?!?!

I think those are so fancy with little work.

Grandkids do the same thing husbands do.

I love Crab Rangoon but had never considered making them. Thanks so much for the great recipe and the pictures. I too, am not a rocket scientist and if things are shown to me in picture form, I can actually follow directions. Have a wonderful New Year.

Baby Favorite said...

OMG! He must've gone to the same School of Not Knowing How to Put Things Away that my husband graduated from! With honors! LOL

Deanna said...

I must confess - sometimes I do stupid stuff like that too. I think I'm missing the housekeeper gene.

Live.Love.Eat said...

OMG!!!!! Too funny about your hubs putting them away like that! I guess I shouldn't get on mine when he puts the plastic containers in with the glass bowls, like he doesn't know where things go after 6 years. Hah.

Anyhoo, I am SO happy you joined TMTT. And I love these appies. YOU get an A+. Thank you for always being so sweet & encouraging.

Darlene said...

YUM...those look DELICIOUS! Did our hubby's go to the same school of putting stuff away wrong?!?! That is funny!

Brenda said...

That looks unbelievably good! How fast can I get those ingredients!

jennykate77 said...

Those sound soooo yummy! I love crab! The pic of what your hubby did with them is cracking me up...that's such a man! LOL☺ Hope you have a great day!

Sarah said...

LOL - My husband would have done the same. The picture is priceless!! I love crab rangoon and am so excited to try this baked!

I can't eat crab, but my hubby would LOVE those... I'll have to make them as a surprise for him. They look quite good (and super easy!!)

Jen said...

OH MY, YUM! YUM! YUM!

DD said...

Wow those seriously look so good too bad Josh doesn't enjoy ANYTHING seafoodish at all! I will def. get myself a free copy of that Kraft book!

Big Hair Envy said...

I cannot WAIT to try that recipe!! YUM-O! New Year's Eve sounds like the perfect opportunity:)

I have to give my hubby credit, he is the MASTER at putting away leftovers:) Perhaps your hubby would like to come over for some lessons. It would be MUCH less traumatic if he were being taught by another man! Heehee!

Sherry said...

This sounds absolutely delish! I love crab rangoon. :D

The Happy Housewife said...

Yum! I enjoy live.love.eat too! That site is great!
I think the crab looks wonderful and I think we also must be married to the same guy because my husband puts things away exactly the same way!
