WI Saturday and Crab Rangoon Breakfast Wontons

Thanks for all your well wishes to Joe’s big news!  He really appreciates it, and so do I. 😀 

I went into my WI today with positive thoughts like I normally do, and was actually thinking I’d lost another 1.5 this week.  I actually “feel” smaller if that makes any sense.  So I was a tiny bit bummed with the scale today:

But I have to take my own advice – I can’t expect what I did the past 7 days to show up on the day I weigh in – and it’s a loss, so I’ll take it!  Only .8 from losing 15 pounds and 2.8 from reaching my 10%.  😀

I’ve been loving the trail walk at lunch – and yesterday not only did I get up and ride my bike before work (45 minutes thank you very much), I jogged/walked 3.5 miles yesterday at lunch in 40 minutes.  Then I did 5 minutes of abs on the grass and stretched for 5 minutes which felt so good.

Here are some pics of the trail I took earlier in the week – I have to beware of the ducks – they walk the trail too and they hiss when you walk by!

I really liked that last picture, even though its a weed! 😀

I had an idea to make crab rangoon breakfast wontons this past week, but those addicting pumpkin scones got in the way – maybe that’s what stalled my weigh loss this week – I had two scones every morning 4 days in a row!

So this morning I decided to try my idea, and let me tell you, these are delicious.  I will add that I added a drop of sriracha after I took the pictures and that brought it all together.  You have to try this!

Baked Crab Rangoon Breakfast Wontons

1 serving = 9 Points Plus

Ingredients:

  • 6 wonton wrappers
  • 1/2 cup imitation crab, chopped
  • 1 oz WW cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup egg beaters
  • splash of Worcestershire sauce
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • chopped cilantro
  • sriracha (or other hot sauce)

Heat oven to 350.  Put wonton cups in a muffin tin.  Mix together the egg beaters, cream cheese, crab, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.  Divide the egg mixture evenly among the wonton cups.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Let cool for a couple minutes, then remove to plate, and top with chopped cilantro and sriracha sauce.

This is definitely going to be repeated – and really only took 25 minutes total to make, including the baking time. 😀

How was your week?  I am going to mix up my breakfasts again, and add some more work outs – I want that 10% and 15 pound sticker from WW! 

See you on Monday!

  1. this looks delish- are they worth the points for breakfast? I pinned this, they look so good! http://pinterest.com/pin/26006650/

    • Absolutely worth the points! 😀 Thanks for “pinning” this recipe 😀

      • Those really do look good. Are they regular wonton wrappers? How many wontons is a serving? I count six in the picture. Did you double the recipe for another person or did it make six for one serving? Sorry for all the questions. 😦

      • Yep – six regular wonton wrappers – this recipe serves just one, but it would be easily doubled! 😀

  2. Congrats on the loss!

    Geese are so mean! We were feeding ducks yesterday at the park and the geese would attack the ducks for the bread. I was even afraid the geese were going to start attacking my daughter if she didn’t feed them fast enough.

    Wow…those rangoons look so good!

    Have a great rest of the weekend!

  3. What a lovely place to walk! I love that last picture too. 🙂

    Those wontons look AMAZING. I can’t wait to try my hand at those! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. You’ll get that sticker Biz!

    My sister got engaged at our house this morning! So exciting!!

  5. Yayy for a loss- you are doing so awesome!! The trail pics are gorgeous! The tree is my fav. Im on a big crab kick right now, i must try. Week was awesome, so busy

  6. Oh my goodness do those look good! I love me some crab rangoon, so I’m sure I would love these as well!

  7. Great job on your weight loss, seriously. You’re rockin’ it!

    (I am going to pull my thumb out today & email you my goals, promise!)

    How many wonton cups did that end up making? 6? They look great minus the imitation crab 🙂

  8. A loss is a loss…. good for you! Those breakfast cups look so cute, and I bet they taste great!

  9. Great job on the loss! A loss is a loss! Plus, I have totally felt smaller, but it wasn’t reflected on the scale. Makes total sense to me!

    Your wontons look and sound great! Oh how I would love to live in your house! 🙂

    Happy weekend!

  10. I’ve had those “smaller” feelings too – weird when it doesn’t show up on the scale, but maybe with all of the exercise you are getting more compact?

    Have a great rest of the weekend!

  11. Yum on those rangoons! I hear you about the feelings. I was feeling chubby this week, and then someone said I looked like I lost weight. Go figure.

  12. Sometimes the body just has to rest a bit… you’re getting your sticker soon, I have no doubt!

  13. i am jealous of that scenery for your walk!!! how beautiful!!!

    and love the wontons…i should try it and sub out the crab! oh, and cream cheese…hrm…

  14. Yeah. I really need to make those wontons! I love crab rangoon and I love the idea of making them into bfast food. Love the dandelion pic–when you stop to take a closer look at things, you can be amazed by all of God’s creations, even the weeds! Magnificent.

  15. Great post. Love the trail pix and your loss at WW, but I’m copying the recipe–I foresee a Sunday brunch featuring Crab Rangoons a la Liz! Thanks!

  16. First off, great job on the loss! Second, those breakfast wontons look devine! I so want to make them asap! Bookmarking 🙂

  17. I’m a new follower and I love those days that you “feel” small. Don’t worry, the scale will catch up.

    I’m going to make these this week, they look SO good! I live in Minneapolis and here a lot of restaurants have cream cheese wontons with jalepenos. I will probably add a little of that too.

    Thanks for sharing!

  18. Those wonton cups look so good. I think they’d make a great lunch, too. Excellent job on the weight loss. Have a good 2nd half of the weekend!

  19. YUM on those crab rangoons! I agree with Leslie too – they’d make a great lunch – pair it with a salad & it’s perfect!

    Your sooo lucky to have such a great spot to walk during lunch. Though I can imagine it must make it hell to go back to work! 😛

  20. These rangoons look like a perfect breakfast!! Wow!

  21. your pics are SO pretty, if i had a walking trail with so much beauty, i’d be out on it all the time too, love the ducks!

    the crab wontons look great, what a fun and unique breakfast!

  22. love the breakfast wontons!

  23. WOW…I love the looks of breakfast wontons! I also love the picture with the geese wandering around.

  24. Such a positive attitude, Biz! Love it! I’m right there with you! But I am not so patient…I am getting very aggravated with the scale!! Those wontons look AMAZING! I love crab any way I can get it!

  25. Love your pics! You are getting good with your camera!
    I still think you have done so great with your weight loss. I know it can be disappointing when the scale doesn’t show we want, but you are doing great 🙂

  26. What an interesting recipe! I always eat strange food for breakfast, so this sounded good!

    Love that last pic, too–even though it’s a weed!

  27. Canadian Geese are the worst of them all! In Canada they walk out in front of traffic and we have to stop for them because they’re our national bird and it’s against the law to kill them……and they know it!

    I love your site and all of your recipes. Thanks for helping me to stay on track.

    • Thanks for telling me these are geese and not ducks – they are scary, that’s all I know! 😀

    • These are really good! The whole prep and cook time took a llttie over an hour. From chopping, wrapping, boiling and frying. I’ll probably make them again but for some sort of party.

  28. Love the photo of the dandelion! And all the others too.

  29. […] wonton  wrappers.  My store normally sells them for .99 cents.  I use them to make crab rangoon breakfast wontons,  lasagna wonton cups, sweet potato wontons with a spicy asian dipping sauce, and Hannah’s […]
