Wonton crackers

Need a fancy finger food that takes just minutes to make? This recipe for wonton crackers gives the simple wonton wrapper a gourmet makeover that you can proudly serve alongside other upscale fare.

Wonton crackers are one of the easiest ways to upcycle that package of wonton wrappers languishing in your kitchen. In less than 10 minutes, you’ll have an entire party platter of crisp, delicious versatile eats.

PAIR THIS WITH: Tuna tartare

These crackers are not only a healthy alternative to store-bought crackers, but they’re also a multipurpose nibble that can be eaten solo as a snack or partnered with other impressive party foods.

Our basic version of wonton crackers lends itself to many mouthwatering variations. Serve them with tuna tartare, and your party foods will be the talk of the town. Craving Italian? Use olive oil and sprinkle with dry basil and Parmesan cheese.

Have a need for heat? Add a sprinkle of cayenne. Want a sweet treat? Brush wonton wrappers with coconut oil and douse with sugar, cinnamon, and a little salt. The possibilities are endless.

They couldn’t be much easier to make. Simply cut the wonton wrappers in half, brush generously with oil, sprinkle with parsley, salt, and pepper, then bake for a few minutes. That’s it! These flavorful Asian-inspired crisps are now ready to be eaten with abandon.

Make-ahead tip: Even though these wonton crackers are ready in minutes, you can save some time in the kitchen by making a large batch. Let them cool completely, and then keep them in an airtight container for up to four days.
