    These look yummy. I have an Asian market near me where I can get fresh wonton wrappers. I may have to try this out

        Do these come out really crunchy/crispy? or soft-ish/crispy?

          I would bet mostly crispy. For Chrismas Eve with the family, we're just going to do appitizers instead of a meal, I thought I'd make up several batches of these. I'll let you know!

          The middle is what I put in my jalapeno poppers that I wrap in bacon, I may make a couple with crumbled cooked bacon and see how I like them, and if I like them enough add bacon to the rest.
