Smoky Bacon Wonton's



I'M BACK...and no, sadly enough,
 this picture does not reflect any fabulous Christmas Vacation that I went on...
just me longing for gorgeous weather again and a day where we are ABOVE
freezing. We are in a bit of a ICE BLOCK HERE, where -20 is the norm when we arise in the morning and 0 is the temperature we eat lunch at....its a little frigid here and I hoped that a picture of the sunset in Hawaii just might help us all (especially me) to remember that "This too SHALL pass"!

The holidays were wonderful and I enjoyed every second I had with my sweet family (I hope you did too)!
Life seems to have slowed down JUST a LITTLE BIT and
my old routine is starting to feel like "normal" again (don't know how happy I am about that).
We had family parties, game nights, late nights, slow mornings and we spent a lot of time eating over
the holidays. I know, I know, we should be thinking "SALAD" and veggie trays
right now, but lets face it, YOU don't need a recipe for those
and WHAT fun are they anyway....SO, you may or may not see any
"DIET" food on here, I am not making any promises, BUT YOU WILL find
that if you are craving a little YUMMINESS in your life, you
can always find it here :)
SO ON with the post................

 Smoky Bacon Wonton's
I FAILED to get a picture of these tasty little GEMS...BUT they were FANTASTIC, full of rich smokey flavor and yummy cream cheese....great for your up coming SUPER BOWL ParTy!

1/2 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 t. liquid smoke (if you aren't a fan of the "smoky" flavor, leave this out)
1 8oz. cream cheese
24 won ton wrappers

Combine cream cheese, cooked bacon and liquid smoke (I used an electric mixer to mix mine). Place a little more than 1 tsp. of cream cheese mixture into the center of each wrap. Brush the edges of wrap with water and fold into triangles-- press the edges to seal. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Place the filled won tons inside the of a muffin tin (2 in each tin). Spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray (YES, spray the won ton) and bake at 375 for 13-15 minutes. 

*NOTE: THESE can be deep fried , they are EXTREMELY tasty that way as well....BUT since we are thinking "healthy" (ha ha ha just a little bit) I baked these...you can thank me later :)
