Easy Recipe: Baked Wontons

My motto used to be “If it didn’t get done in the microwave, it didn’t get done.” I’ve since learned to use my electric oven and its four-burner cooktop. But …

Easy Recipe: Baked Wontons

Step 1:  Thaw out your wonton wrappers and prepare any precooked or ready-to-eat filling you desire. (Plain cream cheese is easiest, but old-fashioned chicken and crab salads work, too.)

Step 2:  Spoon a small dollop of filling in the center of a wonton, on the side with less flour. With your finger, moisten the entire edge of the wonton with water (acts as glue) and pinch all the wet edges together to seal the filling inside. (Try not to let any filling reach the wonton’s edge as it will cause a mess.)

Step 3:  On a nonstick baking sheet, or a sheet sprayed with cooking oil, spread out the filled wontons in a single layer and bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees until golden, about 5-8 minutes.

Note:  If filling egg rolls instead, lightly oil the filled egg rolls and bake at the same temperature for about 10-16 minutes.



  1. Sounds yummy!

    • Play with the fillings, CJ. I like to take “tours around the world,” Asian one meal, French the next. Most of all, have fun. Cheers, Ashley

  2. this sounds delicious and I’ve never used wantons before

    • Hope you try and enjoy them, Patti. They’re easy, and you can use a huge variety of vegetarian fillings. Cheers, Ashley
