  • To fill wrappers, place a wonton wrapper with a point toward you. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of filling just below the center. Brush edges of wrapper with the egg mixture. Fold the wrapper over to make a triangle. Press firmly to seal.

  • In a wok or large skillet heat 1 1/2 to 2 inches oil to 365°F. Add wontons to oil, a few at a time, and cook 1 to 2 minutes or until golden, turning once. Use a slotted spoon to remove to paper towels to drain. Keep warm in a 200°F oven while frying remaining wontons.

  • Serve warm with sweet-and-sour sauce.

Tips

Fry wontons as soon as they are filled. If they stand too long, the wrappers will soften and leak when cooked.
