Greek Wontons

Ok, I know Greek Wontons doesn't really make sense, but it is a fun alernative to your typical fried wonton.

I had leftover wonton wrappers from a dinner party a week ago. I pulled together some other ingredients I thought would be good together. And out came what I call "Greek Wontons". Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Recipe: Greek Wontons

½ cup low fat cream cheese
½ cup shredded cheese (of your choice)
¼ cup low fat sour cream
10-12 kalamata olives, diced
1 green onion, diced
¼ tsp garlic salt
Pepper to taste
16 wonton wrappers
¼ cup water
Vegetable oil

Mix all ingredients, minus the wonton wrappers, water, and oil, until well mixed. Place 1 tsp of mixture into the center of a wonton wrapper. Dab your finger into the water and slide along two edges of the wrapper. Place just enough water on the wonton to dampen it, not too much. Fold the dry sides onto the wet. You should have a triangle shape.

Once you have made all 16 triangles. Heat a pan of oil, about ½-1 in from the bottom, over medium heat. Once it bubbles when a sprinkle of water is added, place four triangles into the oil. Heat about 1-2 min on side one, or until medium brown and turn. Heat an additional 1 min on side two or again until medium brown. Remove and place on paper towel. Repeat with remaining triangles. Enjoy!

If need be you can keep them warming in the oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit in an over safe dish.
