The Satisfying Snack That Gives A New Purpose To Wonton Wrappers

Wonton wrappers are a handy ingredient to keep in your pantry for making everything from crab rangoon to non-traditional noodle soup. Their versatility doesn't stop there, though. Wonton wrappers on their own can also make for a fantastic snack in the form of wonton crackers.

Wonton crackers are nothing more than sheets of wonton wrappers that have been cooked in a manner that transforms them into a thin, crunchy, and delicious snack. They are perfect for topping, dipping, or eating on their own. To make them, simply cut a stack of wonton wrappers in half, brush each sheet lightly with cooking oil, and bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until golden brown — just for a few minutes. Once the crackers are out of the oven, you can sprinkle a wide variety of seasonings on top to suit your individual preferences. They can then be served alongside all kinds of proteins, sauces, and other accompaniments.

Wonton cracker variations and pairings

When it comes to flavoring your wonton crackers, the world is your oyster. Since they don't have much flavor themselves, they are pretty much a blank canvas that you can customize however you wish. Salt and pepper are a classic base for savory seasonings, but you can go even further. Sprinkle on some furikake and top with fresh tuna for a crowd-pleasing appetizer. Coat them in chili powder and a squeeze of lime to prepare them for scooping up guacamole, or hit them with some parmesan cheese and garlic powder to create an addictive Italian-inspired treat.

You can get equally creative on the sweet side as well. A generous amount of cinnamon sugar transforms these crackers into a perfect topper for a bowl of ice cream. Dust them with cocoa powder and dunk them into salted caramel for a sweet-and-salty dessert, or lightly sweeten them and use them as a unique base for your next round of campfire s'mores.
