Crispy Baked Wontons Recipe

Crispy Baked Wontons Recipe

“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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 pound extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained and chopped
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 package (12 ounces) wonton wrappers
  • Cooking spray
  • Sweet-and-sour sauce, optional

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.
  • 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. Yield: about 4 dozen.
