This is a super easy and delicious recipe! I love making it when I have wonton wrappers on hand, the other ingredients are always usually in my fridge somewhere (this time I just had to swing by Walmart to get some cheese)! These cheeseburger wontons add a multicultural flare and EVERYONE loves them! They are great as a meal, appetizer, snack, and fun for parties!
1/2 pound Ground Beef
Spices (I used salt, pepper,onion powder, garlic powder)
Condiments ( I used ketchup, mayo, mustard, pickles)
I first cook the ground beef and drain any oils. I transfer the cooked meat into bowl big enough to mix the other ingredients in.
I then add the condiments I love on a cheeseburger. This includes LOTS of the Kraft Cheese Shreds, a little ketchup, mustard, mayo, and then some diced up pickles (my favorite part)!
I stir everything all together to make one bowl of delicious goodness (yum yum!). It starts to already smell like a cheeseburger now!
In a separate small bowl, I whisk an egg up. This will hold my wonton edges together.
I then take a wonton wrapper and put a little spoonful n the center. Less is more here. Over stuffing can result in lots of exploding oil when frying, so do not over stuff! The amount in the picture below is even a wee bit much.
I dip my fingers in the egg and spread it around the edges.
I then fold it in half and press down all the edges to make sure they are stuck together.
In a pot, I fill it a little way with canola oil. I turn up the heat to high. There’s no need to put that much oil because these will float and you will have to flip them to brown the other side. I will usually turn it down a tad once ts gets hot enough (in between medium high and hgh). To test when the oil is hot enough, I will dip a piece of wonton in it. If it starts sizzling, the oil is good to go!
Put a couple cheeseburger wontons in at a time, do not overcrowd the pot. Flip them after a minute or two.
Since everything is already cooked inside all we need to do is look for a nice brown wonton. Once they get to a golden brown color, take them out and put them on paper towels.
THEN EAT! MMM!! Everyone loves these. It reminds them of a traditional American cheeseburger with a little Asian twist!
What are you waiting for?! Try it!
