Homemade Crab Puffs

Hi Everyone!

I'm Julie from White Lights on Wednesday!

I'm really exciting to be on Brooke's blog today and meeting all of you!

Since we don't really know each other, and I'm totally awesome - ha! - here's a little about me.  I live in Arizona.  Yes, it's stupid hot in the summer.  I love to cook and bake.  I'm pretty much obsessed with freshly clean sheets, they're amazing!  I LOVE Love love to eat cookies.  And I like wine and whiskey.  Not together though...ewww.  

There.  Now we can be friends.  :)

To give you an idea of what goes on over at my blog, here are my readers' favorite posts.

I love getting Chinese take out.  It's something we rarely do at my house, but it's always a treat.  Mike gets House Chow Mein - lo mein noodles with sauce, beef, chicken, and shrimp - yum!  I usually get Honey Chicken or Sesame Chicken.  The place we order from includes white rice comes with entrees.  Our absolute must when we order is Crab Puffs - fried, creamy, crabby little bites dipped in sweet and sour sauce...heaven.

I never feel like I get enough filling in my crab puffs.  There was a Chinese place right a across from my apartment, years ago, that had the most perfect crab puffs.  It's been all I can do to try a recreate those puffs, and I think I have.  So for all of you today, Homemade Crab Puffs.

Homemade Crab Puffs


1 can crab meat, drained

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1/4 teaspoon onion powder (or 1 diced green onion)

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce  (you can add more to taste)

1 pkg (50 count) wonton wrappers


Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Mix together crab, cream cheese, onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl until well combined.

  2. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat.  

  3. Put some water in a small bowl.  Lay out wonton wrapper.  Put 1/2 teaspoon crab mix in the middle of the wrapper.  

  4. Fold one edge up to the middle of the wrapper  Dip you finger in water and run along the top of the edge you just folded up.  Bring the opposite edge into the middle and layer over the moistened edge  Gently press to seal the seam.

  5. Wet the top of the open ends of you wonton packet.  Fold each edge into the middle until you form a rectangle.  Gently press to edges down to seal as best as possible.  

  6. Place 3 to 4 wontons in heated oil at a time.  Cook until golden brown, then flip to cook other side.  Remove to paper towel to drain.  

  7. Serve warm with sweet and sour sauce.

You can also pre-make your crab puffs.  Place the wonton packets on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for at least 2 hours.  Place crab puffs in a Ziploc bag.  Defrost in the refrigerator before frying.

    I know right! she is amazing...

  5. Certain parts of it have been great and are relatively easy to maintain... I've completely nixed my coffee creamer habit with splenda (which I NEVER would have thought I could give up) and now I only drink coffee (iced) with a little skim milk. I'm proud of that one because it was a die hard habit and I feel empowered to have cut it! I also haven't been drinking any diet coke (which I loved) although I did have a few sips on the airplane...then I realized club soda was just as good! We are cooking more recipes at home with fresh ingredients and lots of vegetables. Overall our habits have improved greatly (it's so helpful to have Adam on board). It is hard to not have any carbs after lunch...VERY hard. Also, it's hard to not have any dessert. Occasionally we will allow ourselves to have frozen yogurt...even though it's a "cheat" it is a pretty healthy cheat so we allow it since we are in control of our lives haha. I ate pretty poorly this weekend while in Michigan...so now I feel like I'm back on withdrawals!
