“These quick, versatile wontons are also great for a crunchy afternoon snack or paired with a bowl of soothing soup on a cold day. I usually make a large batch, freeze half on a floured cookie sheet, then store in an air-tight 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.

Directions

  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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 21, 2010

I've made this recipe a number of times. I still find it hard to work with the wonton wrappers, but it's so good. I use Duck Sauce instead of Sweet n' Sour

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2009

These are wonderfully tasty and pretty easy to make. They are the first appetizers to be quickly eaten. I made these with only a slight adjustment. I added 2 cloves minced garlic, and used minced ginger instead of ground.
