Try Oven-Baked Crab Rangoon For A Delicious Appetizer Twist

Let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment: as much as we like to talk about how bad fast food is, we all love it.
A home-cooked meal is wonderful, but when you’ve had a long day, or you’re stressed out, or you’re just really not looking forward to washing the pots, ordering some takeout is a pretty tempting option.
But guess what? You can have the best of both worlds!
OK, you’ll still have to wash a pot, but for this recipe, it will also show you that you can make your favorite to-go snacks right at home, even the ones you might never think to make!
Just like our home-kitchen-friendly take on spring rolls, these crab rangoon bites are really simple and totally delicious.
Even better? They only have a few ingredients, so they’re a snap to make. Plus, this version has them baked instead of fried, so they’re healthier, which means you can eat more of them!
Make these perfect finger foods for parties or gatherings, or as a snack when you want something a little different.
