Collard Green Won Tons

31 Dec

I adapted this recipe from one by Paula Deen to incorporate my Collard Greens recipe. Another lovely treat for New Years day but equally as delicious and unique any time of year.

Time: 30 min         Serves: 6


  • 4 cups cooked collard greens
  • 2 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 30-40 won ton wrappers
  • vegetable or peanut oil for frying

How to make it

  • Squeeze out excess liquid from greens. Combine greens with cream cheese and mix well. Place a spoonful of mixture in the center of a won ton wrapper. Using fingertip, rub edges of one side with water, then fold in half into a triangle pressing to seal. At this point you can become creative and try different shapes with the way you fold. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
  • Heat several inches of oil in a heavy deep pot to 350F. Fry in batches until golden brown for about 2-3 minutes per batch, turning occasionally to brown evenly. Drain on paper towels.
