Fried Ham and Cheese Won Tons


Fried Ham and Cheese Won Tons

I do not know why we're always trying to do as much as we can in a weekend. In fact, we've actually become so organised about it that in the last year or so, we started having our weekends booked (and often booking other people's weekends at the same time) literally months beforehand.

One of Hub's friends contacted him to ask if he could come visit. We looked through our agendas and realised that we have almost no free weekends until the end of the year! It is no wonder that the year is finishing so quickly for us, there is no time to watch the time slip by.

There is school tomorrow (Saturday) as it's the school's Open Day. It's always nice for visitors to visit when there are children studying and playing in the school. I am going to do a spot of grocery shopping and finish cooking tomorrow's dinner that I've already started preparing this evening. The menu has been kept simple as Hub wants to open a few bottles of good wine for his friends. So no spices and preferably nothing exotic. I'm basically going to cook French in other words.

However I cannot resist adding an exotic touch to the meal if you wish. There will be 6 adults and 8 children to feed, so the rule is always to stuff the children before the proper meal begins so that they wouldn't wreck the house while waiting for dinner to be served. One of my appetisers, I have decided, is going to be Fried Ham and Cheese Won Tons.


I've made them for an afternoon snack a few days ago and know that they work very well with the children. And they are so easy to prepare, requiring only won ton wrappers, cooked ham and cheese (e.g. cheddar, gouda, emmenthal...). I like to alternate layers of ham and cheese in each won ton wrapper. Seal and deep fry in hot oil.

C, I hate to say it but chances are good that I wouldn't be there to organise the next TA lunch.

But I'm sure my successor will do a better job.

Serene - Are you going to move away from Modena? I mean, not that it would affect me, since we're not living geographically in the same area, but just curious.

This is a superb idea btw!Do they taste good cold too? Or does one have to serve it warm?

Beau Lotus a dit…

I am, though when and where to we have no idea yet.

But things will come to light in a few weeks.

The won tons are best eaten hot of course. Though they are still quite edible cold.

How I am supposed to survive with all you mums leaving me??? Does this mean that I have to go back to pasta alla bolognese? I can't! I need some spicy food-well cooked and home made!!!

There'll be other mums with even better cooking skills cooking for you. You'll forget I even existed after a few weeks. :-)

Anyway, if all things go well, I'll at least be doing the Winter Fair buffet in Dec.
