Crispy Baked Wontons

These quick, versatile wontons are great for a savory snack or paired with a bowl of soothing soup on a cold day. I usually make a large batch, freeze half on a floured baking sheet, then store in an airtight container. —Brianna Shade, Beaverton, Oregon
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min.
  • Makes
    about 4 dozen

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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Place on baking sheets coated with cooking spray; lightly coat wontons with additional cooking spray.
  • Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Serve warm, with sweet-and-sour sauce if desired.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled baked wontons in a freezer container, separating layers with waxed paper. To use, reheat on a baking sheet in a preheated 400° oven until crisp and heated through.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • One beaten egg will work in place of the egg substitute.
  • Mix it up! Wontons can be folded into a variety of shapes. For a simple triangle, place filling in center of a wonton wrapper; moisten edges with water. Fold one corner diagonally over filling to form a triangle; press edges to seal.
  • Try using grated fresh ginger instead of dried. Fresh ginger is potent, though: 3/4 teaspoon should do the trick.

      We loved these. They are so simple to make & baking instead of deep fried helps out with less calories.

      I thought this was a tasty and easy recipe. You can tweak to add flavors you like, such as garlic, mushrooms, cabbage, etc.. Less calories by baking and I like that you can freeze some for later.

      Did not really like the flavor- they looked great. Its all about personal preference.

      The filling is tasty, but found the wonton wrapper too dry and chewy.

      Under the directions it has the freeze option. Freeze cooled baked wontons in freezer container.

      I will be making these for Super Bowl, I can tell by the ingredients we will enjoy. Almost identical to ones I make, I've just never given thought to baking instead of frying. Note: To those questioning freezing process, creator states COOL before freezing, so yes they are baked first.

      Cinbrat, I have not made these, but with some of the adjustments they sound very tasty and I intend to. In answer to your question, all the ingredients are already cooked, you are basically warming them up. Because of that, I would freeze before baking. Thaw before baking or increase the baking time. My husband and I do quite a bit of asian cooking. I love the suggestions of green onions, fresh ginger, garlic and hoisin sauce.
