Ingredients

Honey Mustard

  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

Cheese Wontons

  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 1 (1 lb) block Monterey Jack cheese cubed into 1 oz chunks

Instructions

Honey Mustard

  • Vigorously whisk all ingredients together in a medium bowl until well combined.
  • Cover and chill for at least a few hours, but preferably overnight.

Cheese Wontons

  • Brush one wonton wrapper with water then place another wrapper directly on top of it. Press firmly so they stick together.
  • Brush the outside edges with water.
  • Place a cheese cube in the center.
  • Take opposite corners of the wonton and bring them together.
  • Pinch tightly and repeat with the other two opposite corners - make sure the seams are firmly pinched together.
  • Pace the whole wonton into your hand and gently squeeze out any excess air.
  • Check to make sure there are no holes, pockets, or loose seams in the wonton wrapper, as the cheese will melt out! Repeat this process with as many wontons as you'd like.
  • Fill a large sauce pan with 1 inch of vegetable oil, then heat it to 325 degrees F.
  • Cook the wontons in the hot oil until golden brown, about 1 minute, flipping halfway through.
  • Remove, place on a paper towel to drain excess oil, and serve immediately with the honey mustard dipping sauce.

Notes

Nutritional information does not include how much oil is absorbed into the wonton. It's too hard to calculate. 
**If you place the wontons in the hot oil and you hear "crackling" noises, it probably means that your cheese is leaking out. Take out immediately and try again with another wonton. Make sure that they are all tightly sealed! :)
The best thing about this recipe is that you can make just one, or make enough for a crowd! 1 (1 oz) cube of cheese + 2 wonton wrappers = 1 serving.
1 (1 lb) block of cheese = 1 package wonton wrappers.
If you really don't feel like frying, these can be baked at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes, flipping over halfway through the cooking time!
The honey mustard makes about 3/4 cup!
BAKING INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat. Prepare wontons as directed above, but only use 1 wrapper per wonton and fold the wontons a little differently. Fold them so the shape is like a rectangle. Place the wontons on the baking sheet and spray the top very lightly with cooking spray. Bake for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through.
