Delicious duck bacon is paired up with sweet pears and creamy brie in these glammed up baked wontons. Duck Bacon, Pear, and Brie Baked Wontons will wow your guests and please your taste buds.
I’m sneaking this recipe into the #10DaysofTailgate. It didn’t make it to the list because I forgot to put it on there. I’m still throwing it up there, but won’t make it to everyone’s list, which I’ve included at the bottom of this post. I mean, how can I NOT include it? There’s BACON in it! DUCK BACON! Maple Leaf Farms DUCK BACON!
See what I mean?
Crispy, crunchy, delicious Maple Leaf Farms duck bacon sits on top of creamy brie cheese with a sliver of pear for to offset some of the saltiness in the bacon. Yes, it was difficult NOT eating all of the ingredients, thank you for asking!
This is how you test your manual dexterity. I have not stuffed many wontons in my life. These really did test my patience, but after the first couple I was able to fold the remainders with ease. If you follow my detailed instructions on how to fold the wontons, it will help.
It also helps if you trim your fingernails!
I accidentally poked through a few of mine with my talons. Cursing them by the time I did the second one; I wanted them to be all purdy and not full of claw holes.
How impressive are those delicious golden lines I was hoping for? They actually did show up. I have tried other baked nibbles that I have seen and they didn’t quite look like the picture. These, however, came up picture perfect!
Some of the cheese leaked out. Oh well!
It was a shame that I had to eat that bit of brie that cooked on the pan. I know. As a foodie I make sacrifices like that all the time. *snort*
See how pretty they are? The filling is sweet, creamy, and crunchy and the outside is also crunchy. They were fabulous! S and I ate several after the photo shoot took place.
They did kind of deflate, but that’s due to the cheese melting. Brie has a habit of doing that. You could easily swap it out for a sharp cheese, maybe a havarti or something? Oh. That would be good! Gruyere? Oh yeah, baby! Now I’m drooling again.
Some of them didn’t get quite sealed. Oops. Those are the rejects that you get to eat. It’s a shame. Food rejects. LOL Again, sacrifices as a foodie.
Just look at that tasty duck bacon. I couldn’t even imagine the flavor, but it’s a rich and delicious flavor like no other. Thank you Maple Leaf Farms for sending me such delicious ingredients to cook with! I never would have tried duck or even duck bacon if it wasn’t for their graciousness and for +Camilla Mann who coordinated this fabulous event!
- 10 wonton wrappers
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped, cooked duck bacon
- 4 ounces brie, sliced
- 1 pear, cored and thinly sliced
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Working with one wrapper at a time, place a slice of brie in the center of wrapper. Top with a thin slice of pear and a few pieces of bacon.
- Pour some water into a small bowl. Dip a finger in the bowl and lightly wet the edges of the wrapper. Bring the lower right corner and the lower left corner together and pinch the seam to seal. Bring the top right and top left corners together and pin to seal. Turn the wrapper 90 degrees and bring the two half together. Pinch to seal. Place on a baking sheet covered with aluminum coated with cooking spray or lined with a silpat baking sheet.
- Repeat with the remaining wrappers. Once all the wontons have been completed spray them lightly with cooking spray and bake at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from heat and cool slightly before serving.
