Cheese Age


I first introduced you to Cheese Age waaaay back when I first tried them at Honda-Ya for Son’s birthday. Yeah, I’m a bit behind in my posts, can you tell? πŸ˜€ Anyways, I promised you I would try making them and then write a post about them… and I did! Make them anyways. I made them for my great-aunt’s Christmas party the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and they were a hit! One of my great-aunts loved them so much, she took all of the left-overs home!

These are addictive. Quite spicy, so I can only eat one at a time and run for water between pieces, but soooo good! Plus, these are a perfect snack to bring for a Super Bowl party! (I’m actually doing this… I’ll make them Saturday, refrigerate them overnight, then send them with Son because unfortunately I can’t be at his friends’ Super Bowl Party this year!) Cheesy, spicy, fried… perfect with a beer or two while watching the big game! Of course, if you are more in the mood for sushi for your Super Bowl party, you can definitely check out our Super Bowl Rock N’ Roll that I made last year (a suggestion by one of our favorite readers, Ralph Whitbeck! πŸ˜€ ).

  • 1 package of wonton skins (I used the square ones, but you can use the round ones instead if you would like)
  • 1 package of Velveeta individual cheese slices
  • 1 jar of sliced jalapeños
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 egg white
Cooking Directions
  1. Lay down a wonton skin so one of the corners is pointing towards you. (I’m writing this as if you are using a square wonton skin. If you are using a round one, then it doesn’t matter which side is towards you πŸ˜› )
  2. Place a jalapeño slice just below the halfway point of the wonton skin.
  3. Break the cheese slice into thirds.
  4. Break each third of the cheese slice into pieces, arrange on top of and around the jalapeño.
  5. Using a pastry brush ,brush the bottom two edges of the wonton skin with egg white.
  6. Fold the top half of the wonton skin down over the fillings.
  7. Press the edges together to seal the wonton.
  8. Pour enough oil into a frying pan so it is at least an inch deep, heat it until it is hot (sorry, I have no exact temperature for you).
  9. Place one layer of the filled wontons into the pan.
  10. Fry wontons until they are golden brown. When we did this, we found that they expanded quite a bit and would start to leak cheese if one of the sides hit the bottom of the hot pan (which is why we want the oil to be deep enough so this doesnt happen.
  11. Let cool, and enjoy!

    This is totally up my alley, but you know how I hate frying things. I’ll have a fry-party sometime I think. (My bf first intro’d me to the idea, though I’ve never been to one; his friend, before I met either of them, had just gotten a brand new deep fryer so he had everyone over where they deep fried anything. and everything. and everything. GROSS but sounds so yummy =X they even did oreos and twinkies and all that gross stuff you can find at street fairs here. hahaha.)

    I forgot to write I am totally going to make these with a different kind of cheese. I think I could handle the spiciness if I used pepper jack or maybe a mix of cheeses. THE POSSIBILITIES… or even a bit of ham or bacon in each piece. Dude… πŸ˜€

    Carolina – Awesome! I’m sure you guys will love it! πŸ™‚

    Yvo – Dude I know! Haha I sound like such a surfer. πŸ˜› I know you hate frying, but these aren’t too bad. Maybe you can convince your wonderful bf to fry them for you? πŸ˜€ That’s what I do. Hehe. Yeah, I have seen those fried Oreos and Twinkies at the LA County Fair and the OC Fair over here in Cali, but have never had the stomach to try them. Have you? Are they any good? And different types of cheeses is definitely a possibility!! Both times I made this I was kinda in a hurry, so I didn’t experiment much, but that’s definitely something I have been meaning to try!! And bacon?!?!?! Seriously now, why didn’t I think of that? Especially knowing how much I love bacon?!?! *drool*…

    Haha, because you’re kind to your arteries, is why! BF doesn’t cook. Him deep frying would mean hours of scrubbing for me (whoever cooks, the other cleans). Haha. I have a deep fryer, will give these a go when I have my housewarming. I’m also going to make bacon cups/bowls for the party. And fill them with salad, though, to balance it out! Like a BLT without the bread. Atkins friendly! Yeah, that’s it…

    Haha me? Kind to my arteries? Not so much… I wish it were that way here… I cook and then I have to clean! πŸ™ Otherwise I would cook a lot more! I hate doing dishes… πŸ˜› I saw those bacon cups… my sister is pestering me to make them for her! Let me know how they turn out… although I’m sure you’ll post something on Feisty Foodie about it!
