Spinach and Bacon Wontons

This little recipe for Spinach and Bacon Wontons… is quick, easy and delicious… one of those last minute “noshes” or a quick add-on to a party menu…
I used frozen spinach… I usually have a bag of it in the freezer for recipes like this… the recipe doesn’t use a lot so unless you have other uses for an entire box of frozen spinach use the bagged variety.
I cooked the bacon and drained it on paper towels, then cut it up into pieces.  I placed the pieces in my mini chopper with the shallot (also cut into pieces) to very finely chop the bacon.  A few pulses is all it takes.
I also used my mini chopper to mix the cream cheese and spinach … just cut up the cream cheese into cubes and add the spinach… pulse until well mixed.  You can also use a mixer if you don’t have a mini chopper.
You can jazz it up more with additions…. Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder…. All should work.. just a light sprinkling will be fine.
You could also add a bit of shredded cheddar cheese… just eyeball the amount… I’d say about a ¼ cup would work nicely.  Be inventive!
The mixture should make about 24 wontons.
Try these tasty treats!
