Caesar Salad Wonton Cups



These are made using wonton wrappers as the cups. They bake crispy and golden with just a light spray of oil. A great shortcut for appetizers!

Ingredients

  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • 2 1/2 cups cos/romaine lettuce , shredded
  • 1 cup cooked chicken , diced
  • 1 1/2 bacon rashers , diced
  • 1/4 cup bread , diced finely (preferably stale)
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese , freshly grated
  • 2 tsp fresh parsley , finely chopped (optional - for garnish)

  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup mayonnaise , preferably whole egg
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Milk , to adjust consistency
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Fit the wonton wrappers into each hole of a standard size muffin / cupcake tin (not mini and not Texas muffin tins!). Spray the wontons lightly with olive oil. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, until golden and crispy. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  2. Heat a small non stick pan over high heat. Spray with oil, add bacon and sauté until crispy, then remove and drain on absorbent paper towel.
  3. Return pan to stove, reduce heat to medium high and spray pan with oil. Add finely diced bread. Shake pan (or stir) to brown evenly. Remove mini croutons from pan, scatter over a pinch of salt and set aside.
