WontonsPosted: February 6, 2012
Wontons aren’t just for chinese restaurants. Nope. They are easy to make right at home to be enjoyed whenever you want them. My grandma Noonie and I have been making wontons for several years now and we can whip up a couple of batches in less than an hour. We use store bought wonton wrappers and one package makes a few dozen. My grandma and I like to use bbq ground pork cutlets from the IGA. It sounds strange. But trust me, the bbq spice really adds something to the filling.
Mixing the meat and ingredients in a medium bowl with my favourite assistant.
Wrappers brushed with water
A teaspoon of filling placed on every wrapper
- 2 packages of ground pork cutlets
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp soya sauce
- 1 tsp ground pepper
- 1 package of wonton wrappers
In a medium bowl combine the first 7 ingredients until thoroughly mixed. Spread your wonton wrappers onto a clean, flat surface and using a pastry brush, brush the edges with water. Put a tsp of filling in the centre of the wrappers and pinch together. Working in small batches, put the raw wontons in a pot of boiling water until they are floating about 7 minutes. If you aren’t going to eat them right away, place them on a cookie sheet until cool and then freeze before packaging.
