Whenever I go out to an Asian restaurant, one of the first things that I always look for is wontons. There is just something about biting into the crispy wrapper to reveal a savory, flavorful filling. Since I do love them so much I thought I would tackle making them at home. For this wonton recipe, I combine ground pork with green onions, water chestnuts, fresh garlic and a few simple seasonings before wrapping the mixture in a wonton wrapper and frying until golden brown. Serve with a side of sweet thai chili sauce and all is right with the world.
The best thing about this recipe is that it makes so many, why is that a good thing you ask? Well because they freeze really well. Just lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet, pop them in the freezer and once they are frozen you can divide them up into separate freezer bags. Then, whenever you get a craving for some crispy fried pork goodness you can just take them out of your freezer and fry them up. They also make a great appetizer to serve with Ground Turkey Stir Fry .
