Ingredients

1/2 lb. ground pork or chicken
1/4 cup minced water chestnuts
1 T. soy sauce
1 T. Sherry or White Wine
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 egg
2 scallions minced
dash of black pepper
package of 40 won ton wrappers
small bowl of water
Oil for deep frying


Mix all ingredients except the won ton wrappers in a bowl.


Place one tablespoon of the meat mixture in the center of the won ton wrap.


Moisten the edge of the won ton with water.


Fold won ton into a triangle


With the point facing down, take the right point to the left point, moisten with water and press together. It will look like a nurses cap.


Heat oil in a deep pan or wok. Make sure it is hot before dropping won tons into the oil. Drain on a cookie sheet with a wire rack on top.


Serve with plum sauce or a Chinese hot mustard sauce.


They can be frozen when cool and then reheated in a 350 degree oven while still frozen.

Notes

This is a great appetizer I learned to make while taking a Chinese cooking class. They can be made ahead, frozen and then re heated.
