Some of my favorite things to keep stocked in my kitchen are pre-made egg roll sheets and wonton wrappers. They're so versatile and can be used to create so many different things. Here are just a few of many examples:
The most obvious use for wonton wraps is, duh, wontons! For these pork potstickers, I made a filling of ground pork and Thai seasonings, seared them in oil, then steamed them in a covered pot for about five minutes. Simple and delicious! As an added tip; make extra, freeze them raw, then just thaw and cook them whenever you want!
When I don't feel like making my own pasta dough and want to whip up a quick and tasty meal, I'll use wonton wrappers as make shift ravioli dough. These are stuffed with ricotta cheese, spinach, chicken, and Italian seasonings. They're sealed, boiled in salted water for about 4 minutes, and topped with a lemon-garlic oil. Yum!
These chicken pesto "egg rolls" are the tastiest lunch, appetizer, or dinner idea! You can get creative with the filling; just stuff, roll the egg roll up like a burrito, and pan sear them in oil until they're crispy all around. Pan searing limits the amount of fat you would get if they were deep fried (if you don't mind the extra calories, deep frying works too!) So tasty and so easy!
Just for a moment of innocent self promotion-- I'm published! I recently got the opportunity to review a new restaurant in town and it was published this week. Here's the link!
Have a happy Friday and an awesome weekend!
