"Served with a choice of sauces, these crunchy appetizers are a big hit at parties," relates Connie Blesse of Auberry, California. "They're so popular that my family has even requested them as a main dish for dinner," she notes.
How about a fast festive appetizer just for two? These hot, crispy little bites boast a rich creamy filling with a hint of crab. “They simply melt in your mouth,” promises Robin Boynton of Harbor Beach, Michigan. Suggestion: serve wontons with plum sauce or sweet-and-sour sauce for dipping.
Mealtime is so much fun and filled with laughter and conversation when fondue is on the menu. I created this recipe after tasting something similar in a restaurant. Family and friends request it often.
This recipe is truly a family favorite. My husband, Doug, makes them often for family meals and my sister serves them every Tuesday night at the restaurant she owns. Feel free to use for sausage if you and your family like food with a little more kick.
"I first tried these kabobs when my daughter-in-law made them for my granddaughter's birthday party," writes Norma Wells of Cookson, Oklahoma. "Full of soy sauce, ginger and pineapple flavors, these appetizers are popular when I serve them at get-togethers.
WHEN I was 13, I came to the United States from Korea with my family. Korean food was the staple of our meals as I was growing up in America and still is today with a family of my own. Although many of the dishes from my heritage are hot and spicy, Korean Wontons (mandoo) are not. The fried dumplings, filled with vegetables and beef, are very easy to prepare, and the ingredients are inexpensive. As a stay-home mom with four kids, I prepare Korean food almost every day because my husband, Yong, says he cannot live without it, even though he’s been in America for almost 30 years!—Christy Lee, Horsham, Pennsylvania
"My friend Yi owns a Chinese restaurant and taught me that Chinese cooking is simple if you have great recipes," says Rose Bialowas from New Port Richey, Florida. She uses shrimp, bean sprouts, cabbage and carrot for these crispy egg rolls served with a homemade sweet-and-sour sauce.
A soy sauce mixture with sesame seeds and green onion adds flavor to these deep-fried wings. My mom got the recipe from a friend in Vancouver, British Columbia and passed it on to me. My husband just loves chicken wings, and these are by far his favorite.
