Crab Rangoon

To celebrate the premier of Mad Men on Sunday, I teamed up with Modcloth and a group of my favourite bloggers to bring you Mad Men inspired vintage recipes, as well as an awesome themed giveaway! 

Today I'm sharing a vintage inspired recipe for crab rangoon, a common fare at Trader Vic's (a popular restaurant on the show).    


- 1 x 6 oz can of crab meat, drained
- 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 tsp A1 Steak Sauce
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1 pkg wonton wrappers
- 1 egg, beaten


Combine crab meat, cream cheese, steak sauce, and garlic powder in a medium bowl and mix until fully combined. 

Place 1 tsp filling in the middle of each wonton wrapper, then pinch in all four corners. Repeat until all of your filling is gone (24 or so wontons).

Using a deep fryer, fry wontons until golden brown. 

For a lighter spin, rather than deep-frying, bake the wontons in preheated 425 oven for 5-7 minutes (being careful not to burn).
