Wanton Appetizer Recipe

1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground pork
1 (8 oz.) water chestnut, chopped fine
3 stalks green onion, chopped fine
2 tsp. sesame seed oil
Salt and pepper to taste

To make a wonton, spread a single wrapper square across the palm of one hand, place a small clump of filling in the center, and seal the wonton into the desired shape by compressing the wrapper's edges together with the fingers. Adhesion may be improved by moistening the wrapper's inner edges, typically by dipping one's fingertip into plain water and running it across the dry dough to dissolve the extra flour. As part of the sealing process, air should be "burped" out of the interior to avoid rupturing the wonton from internal pressure when cooked.

The nice thing about making Wanton Appetizers is that you can store them ahead of time and just heat them when your guest arrives.

Mix filling ingredients together. Place about one teaspoon of filling in center of won ton skin and fold over making a triangle, sealing edges by wetting with water. Deep fry in hot oil until golden and meat is cooked (about five minutes). Serve with catsup mixed with Coleman dry mustard or with sweet and sour sauce. Serves 12.

Each region of China has its own variations of wonton, examples include Beijing, Sichuan, Hubei, Jiangnan, Jiangxi, Guangdong (Cantonese), Fujian etc.
