Can I freeze Cream Cheese Wontons
Yes, you can freeze cream cheese wontons. I recommend that you store them in a plastic freezer bag with a paper towel inside so that there is minimal condensation. If the wontons become soggy after thawing, then put them back into the air fryer for a few minutes until crispy again. If you want to skip thawing you can do that also. Just toss your wontons back into your air fryer at 350 degrees for 4 to 5 minutes.
How do I reheat cream cheese wontons
To reheat your air fryer cream cheese wontons turn the air fryer up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and put them in for 2 to 3 minutes. You can also put them into a 350 degree oven for five minutes if you do not want to use the air fryer again until later.
What is your favorite way to eat Cream Cheese Wontons
I love eating cream cheese wontons with hot sauce! It really enhances the flavors of everything inside so it is definitely my top choice. You can dip these appetizers in soy sauce but I prefer not to unless that's all I have on hand because it makes them taste less sweet and more savory. Some people also like to dip theirs in sweet chili sauce. No matter what you dip them in, they are delicious.
