I'll be in Erie for Thanksgiving to be with my fam. Hope everyone has a wonderful day and are able to eat more than you ever thought you could. I tried to think of a good turkey day gift, but got nothing, so here's an easy and yummy appetizer recipe for you to enjoy!
24 square wonton wrappers (These are paper-thin sheets of dough used to make wontons and egg rolls, you can find these in the produce section, I had to ask)
1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts in water, drained and chopped
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons finely snipped fresh parsley
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/2 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350°F. Press one wonton wrapper into each cup of a Mini-Muffin Pan. Lightly spray wontons with olive oil. *Bake 6 minutes or until edges of wontons are light golden brown. Remove from oven; set aside, leaving wontons in pan. (this is so the bottom gets crunchy, you can skip if you're running low on time)
Zest lemon to measure 1/2 teaspoon of zest (I cheated and just put in lemon juice, tastes fine); Combine artichokes, bell pepper, parsley, lemon zest, mozzarella cheese, mayonnaise and garlic to batter bowl; mix well.
Add half of the Parmesan cheese to artichoke mixture; Fill each wonton cup with one scoop of artichoke mixture; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake 8 minutes or until edges of wontons are golden brown and cheese is melted. Remove from pan; serve immediately.
