Broiled Maryland-Style Crabcakes with Creamy Herb Sauce from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach Broiled Maryland-Style Crabcakes with Creamy Herb Sauce from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

The mid-Atlantic coast is a region filled with fishing boats, oyster roasts, rolling tides, bald eagles and lighthouses – the whole picturesque nine yards. I was lucky enough to grow up on the Potomac River, which is inside the Chesapeake Bay watershed. This means crab feasts and crabcakes were normal, everyday events for my family. I even went crabbing with crab pots and little fish as bait. It was just part of life for those of us who grew up on the coasts of Virginia, Maryland or Delaware.

Broiled Maryland-Style Crabcakes with Creamy Herb Sauce from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

As I thought about creating a crabcake recipe to share with you, I knew I wanted to make Maryland-style crabcakes. Other crabcakes contain a lot of filler ingredients to help the patty stick together, but here in the mid-Atlantic, we prefer the opposite. The crab meat takes center stage (as it should!) and everything else in the cake is just a compliment. A little mayo, mustard and herbs and spices for flavor, an egg and a touch of flour for binding. The cakes are then broiled for a quick and easy meal fit for a king.

The Creamy Herb Sauce on the side is equally delicious, so make sure to save any extra for later. It makes a great salad dressing, veggie dip or sauce for seafood, chicken or beef.

Baked Wonton Cups from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

I’m always looking for an affordable and convenient, not to mention quick, appetizer idea for parties and get-togethers. Whether it’s a family reunion, dinner party or just a few friends gathering to watch the game on Sunday, I like to have a great app ready in minutes. I don’t want to spend a fortune on gourmet ingredients, but I don’t want to heat up frozen fish sticks either. There should be an appetizer that falls in between these two extremes, right? A perfect middle ground that pleases everyone – and my wallet.

Baked Wonton Cups from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

I’ve been scouring Pinterest for this type of appetizer for years, but I never found anything as quick and easy as I wanted. I tried a few recipes, but always ended up stuck in the kitchen during kickoff. But not anymore. I finally have a solution for the perfect 10-minute app.

Baked Wonton Cups from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

These baked wonton cups are perfect for last-minute or casual entertaining because they’re speedy and simple. There are no complicated techniques involved – all you need is a muffin tin and wonton wrappers, which can be found in most grocery stores. You can make anywhere from 6-24 of these at a time, depending on how many muffin tins you have and whether you are baking them in a toaster oven or regular oven. Simply tuck a wonton wrapper into each muffin tin so it creates a little bowl or cup shape and bake for about 8 minutes, until the edges have browned and the wonton is crisp.

When the wonton wrappers have cooled and you’ve removed them from the muffin tins, you can pack them with any filling you want. They are as appropriate for savory dishes as they are for sweet, and they accommodate both hot and cold fillings.

Baked Wonton Cups from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

If you want to make the wontons fancy (don’t worry, even this part is painless), you can brush the wrappers with egg wash and sprinkle them with Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning before baking. These are great for savory appetizers. You can even get creative and add your own favorite blend of seasonings, herbs and spices to customize the app cups.

Baked Wonton Cups from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

If you’re thinking of doing something sweet, brush the wrappers with egg wash and sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar or cocoa powder and sugar. Then, fill them with pudding, mousse, ice cream, berries or your favorite dessert.

Baked Wonton Cups from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

My favorite way to serve wonton cups is to fill warm cups with scrambled eggs. Add cooked breakfast sausage, peppers, onions, mushrooms and herbs for a savory brunch twist. Also good is a cool savory wonton cup with your favorite chicken salad. Try a classic 7-layer dip built into each cup for individual servings. It’s like the chip is already included!


Wonton Cups
YIELDS: 6 servings

Ingredients
6 wonton wrappers
2 Tablespoons melted butter
Filling of choice
Instructions
Preheat toaster oven to 350°F.
Carefully press and fold one wonton wrapper in each cup of a 6-cup muffin pan.
Very lightly brush edges of wrappers with butter.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Notes
For savory cups, sprinkle brushed wrappers with a combination of Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. For sweet cups, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Fill warm cups with items such as scrambled eggs for breakfast or fill cool cups with chicken salad for lunch or pudding or mousse for dessert.

Broiled Chipotle Tilapia with Avocado Sauce from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeachBurrito bowls and one dish meals are all the rage, and everyone seems to want the recipe for easy dishes like this homemade chipotle burrito bowl – and we can’t blame them! These meals are easy to prepare, perfect to make out of leftovers and quick to clean up because fewer dishes are used. Plus, if you have any picky eaters in the family, it’s not difficult to customize the bowl.

Broiled Chipotle Tilapia with Avocado Sauce from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Here’s a tip: to prepare lunches or quick dinners like this, prep the ingredients on Sundays before your busy week begins. In fact, we made this at my house last night. We cut the grilled corn off a cob, diced up some fresh bell peppers and chiles, rinsed and warmed black beans, and chopped tomatoes and onions. Meanwhile, a batch of rice was going in my rice cooker and the fish was broiling in the toaster oven. The entire meal was easy and healthy – perfect for a quick supper. Often, we’ll double the recipe (or swap out the fish for chicken) and take the leftovers for lunch the next day.
