Fried wonton boats

Since I had so much stuffing left I thought it would taste good in a wonton wrapper; a fried wonton wrapper. And of course I didn’t have it at hand so I had to go out and get it. Did I mention that there are two kinds? One for frying and one for soup. I know that the one for soup can’t be fried, but I never tried the other way around before. Today I didn’t want to take my chances so I bought the wonton wrappers for frying.
And of course my egg is there to provide the clue that keeps my boats from sinking.
One big teaspoon of stuffing went on the wonton sheet. Then I put some egg white on the edges and fold them together.
These boats were way easier and faster to make then spring rolls and since I already had the stuffing it only took me about 30 minutes to go through one whole package of wonton.
All these boats need some oil to make them puff up.
As you can see I am only frying a small batch at one time. It is easier to keep an eye on them. They brown very fast and need room to peddle around.
Once they are ready put them on some paper towel so it can soak up some of the oil.

They were tasty on their own, but they were irresistible with some sweet and sour dipping sauce. Just one from a jar would do.
