Pork And Cream Cheese Wontons

Pork Cream Cheese Wontons

     It is nearing the holiday seasons and I was having a sort of “blog block” with coming up with some ideas for posts. My coworker and friend gave me the idea to come up with some appetizer ideas that could be perfect for holiday entertaining. So here goes. I attempted my first ever wonton recipe. I thought why not do a pork and cream cheese stuffed wonton and add a couple of easy  dipping sauces. This was really easy and had so many flavors that I am sure if you give it a try your holiday party will be a blast with such good appetizers. Pork and Cream Cheese Wontons


  • 1 lb ground pork
  • Small bundle green onion
  • 2 packages of cream cheese softened
  • 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice powder
  • ½ tbs garlic powder
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Wonton wrappers
  • Dipping sauce of choice, (I chose a combination of soy and sweet and sour sauce as well as soy and mango chutney).


1.       Brown pork in large sauté pan until cooked through.

2.       Combine chopped green onion, cream cheese, and drained ground pork in a large mixing bowl.

3.       Sprinkle in the Chinese 5 spice powder, garlic powder, and lemon juice. Mix well until smooth and combined.

4.       Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

5.       Spray a baking pan with cooking spray.

6.       Place a small dollop of filling into center of each wonton wrapper.

7.       Fold over either into little pockets or diamond shapes.

8.       Lay on baking dish and spray the tops with some cooking spray.

9.       Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown.

     I combined in one dish some soy and sweet and sour sauce. I also combined in another dipping dish some soy and mango chutney. I preferred the mango chutney, but whatever works for you. The flavors in the wontons were fantastic. The pork, the cheese, the hint of 5 spice powder and the onion went so well together along with dipping them into the two sauces. The flavors were fantastic and will definitely be a hit at your next holiday party.
