If I am not in my bed watching Love Actually I am either attending a party where I have to make an appetizer or I am throwing a party. In which, if I am throwing the party I will definitely be making an appetizer or two and generally something good to drink or dessert on. Stuffed Wontons are a great appetizer when it comes to the holiday. A fabulous way to use the extra boxes of Kraft Stove Top stuffing in your pantry.
I always have several boxes as we like to eat it year round. We gobble it down with pork, turkey, and duck. Sometimes you want the stuffing without meat. To get my stuffing fix I make these Stuffed Wontons for appetizers. They can be put together incredibly fast and simply bake or fry them up when people are on their way. You can even fry this in advance and then reheat if need be. I just swing by Walmart and grab the stuffing, mushrooms, and wontons to keep on hand when needed.
I also grabbed up some Jet Puff Marshmallow Snowmen for our Hot Chocolate Sticks to have for the teen guests to have with warmed milk. Some of the adults go after them to stir into their coffee. It’s perfect for any holiday party drink station.
At parties and at home these Stuffed Wontons disappear so fast! I have to say it’s nice on the pocket book too. Not much goes into these that you basically use only one box of the Stove Top Stuffing, wontons, and one mushroom. You can’t be that. It’s an easy way to save during the holidays when planning a party. I like to fry them ahead and then just bake to crisp them up before the party. I also make the Hot Chocolate Sticks in advance.
