If you love crabmeat and cheese this appetizer is just for you. It is super easy to make and a fun appetizer to serve for parties. It is nice and light and the right size to add to a tray of other appetizers.

I have changed this recipe up a bit since I first posted it. It seems I keep taste testing to get it where I want it. I will also update with a dipping sauce I am serving with it tomorrow on Thanksgiving Day 11/23/12.

My family loved them so much they were the first appetizer to disappear from the table.

How to Make Crab Wonton Cups

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray mini-muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray. (I don't use any spray and mine come out of tin cups fine.)
    In a medium bowl, stir together crabmeat, green onion, mayonnaise, curry powder, salt, lemon juice, and swiss cheese.
  2. Use kitchen scissors to trim off corners of individual wonton skins; place trimmed skins in wells of mini-muffin tins. Spoon about 1 tablespoon crabmeat mixture into each wonton cup. Top each with a slice of water chesnut.
  3. Bake in preheated oven about 12 minutes, or until puffed and browned. Serve hot.

    ---I served them with sweet and sour sauce and had hot sauce on the side too.
  4. Here are the two products I added and then a pic of the crab that I used too.
