Cheesy Frogs

If you like pickles, cheese and anything fried (or baked for health reasons) I've got the treat for you!

I made baked pickle fries for you all a few weeks back.  Lots of fans said they looked yummy (smart gals, they were right) so I thought we'd keep the pickle theme going a bit longer.

This one included cheese.
Hello, Heaven.
I made both options, both fried in canola oil and baked with a little cooking spray.

Both options were tummy and melty.
The fried version resulted in a much crispier wonton and, ironically enough, a less greasy taste.
I can appreciate the want to bake for "healthy" but factor in the taste and texture as well...
I'd probably fry before baking these babies again.


The makings regardless of baking or frying are the same:
1 wonton wrapper
1 pickle wedge
1 slice of Havarti cheese

Make as many as you want to eat.

Assembly:

Dry off the pickle wedges as much as you can.  Moisture in baking or frying does not exactly go together too well.


Layer the wonton, cheese and pickle like this...
Diamond shape makes for easier and cleaner rolling.


Fold up the bottom and slightly tuck the wonton under the pickle.
Dampen the exposed sides with a little water on your finger and gently fold in the sides.  Make sure the seals are fairly tight so you don't loose any cheesy filling while cooking.
Keep folding up and lay seam side down until ready to cook.



Frying at about 375 degrees about 2-3 minutes per side
Baked at 400 degrees about 6-8 minutes per side



Caution, they are amazingly hot fresh out of the oil/oven.
Let cool slightly before diving in (and I know restraint may be difficult, however avoid the pain of a burnt tongue in infinitely more enjoyable.)
Enjoy!
