What Are Wontons?

Wontons are a small dumpling or roll with a savory filling, which can be eaten on their own or boiled in soup. Wonton skins are made by creating dough squares of flour, egg, water and salt. They are filled and then boiled, fried or baked.

What’s In Turkey Wontons

I use three ingredients: wonton wrappers, ground turkey and scallions + salt — 15 minutes. Yup, that’s all folks, three ingredients, and it tastes yummy.

How To Make Wontons

The filling – one pound of Turkey, chicken or beef. 1/2 cup chopped scallions. Mix it together. Add salt or whatever spice you want. Less is always better for me.  I saved the roots of the scallions in a small vase. Add water and the green scallions will keep growing. Your very own hydroponic garden.

You can get the wonton wrapper from any Asian Market. $2.29. About 50/70 wrapper. One pound of Turkey and scallions filling makes about 100 pan-fried wontons. It seems a lot, but my daughter and I can eat 40 of them in one sitting. Too addictive.

How To Wrap The Wonton

There are many versions, but I did what my mom taught me. Put the fillings in the middle, fold them and make a triangle. Press the corner edge. Then dap a little water on one edge and bring the other edge on top of it and press it again, so it sticks. Too confusing? Make yourself a triangle or a square wonton. You do you! Your kitchen, your domain!
