These quick, versatile wontons are great for a savory snack or paired with a bowl of soothing soup on a cold day. I usually make a large batch, freeze half on a floured baking sheet, then store in an airtight container. —Brianna Shade, Beaverton, Oregon

Nutritional Facts

1 wonton (calculated without sweet-and-sour sauce) equals 38 calories, 1 g fat (trace saturated fat), 5 mg cholesterol, 103 mg sodium, 5 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 3 g protein.


  1. In a large skillet, cook the pork, turkey and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in the water chestnuts, soy sauce, egg substitute and ginger.
  2. Position a wonton wrapper with one point toward you. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Place 2 heaping teaspoons of filling in the center of wrapper. Fold bottom corner over filling; fold sides toward center over filling. Roll toward the remaining point. Moisten top corner with water; press to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  3. Place on baking sheets coated with cooking spray; lightly coat wontons with additional cooking spray.
  4. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Serve warm with sweet-and-sour sauce if desired.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled baked wontons in a freezer container, separating layers with waxed paper. To use, reheat on a baking sheet in a preheated 400° oven until crisp and heated through.
    Yield: about 4 dozen.

"Under the directions it has the freeze option. Freeze cooled baked wontons in freezer container."

"I will be making these for Super Bowl, I can tell by the ingredients we will enjoy. Almost identical to ones I make, I've just never given thought to baking instead of frying. Note: To those questioning freezing process, creator states COOL before freezing, so yes they are baked first."

"Cinbrat, I have not made these, but with some of the adjustments they sound very tasty and I intend to. In answer to your question, all the ingredients are already cooked, you are basically warming them up. Because of that, I would freeze before baking. Thaw before baking or increase the baking time. My husband and I do quite a bit of asian cooking. I love the suggestions of green onions, fresh ginger, garlic and hoisin sauce."

"I read the first question, scrolled though the remaining nine and didn't find an answer. I'd like that answered. If the wontons aren't cooked before freezing, when you take them out of the freezer, do you need to thaw them before cooking?"
