Fried Pork Wontons are my second favorite food right next to Sweet & Sour Chicken. This always works in my favor since I usually get both at the same time. This has been the best recipe I have tried so far. it is pretty labor intensive so don’t attempt these if you are in a hurry. The best part of this recipe is that it makes so many (around 40). This way you can take the extra and freeze them so next time your wonton craving hits pop them in the oven and enjoy in just minutes!

- Seal the wrapper shut by pressing down on the edges with a fork.
