Easy & Crispy Fried Wontons

Making your own fried wontons is easier than you think.

You order them when you eat out, but why not make them at home? These golden, crispy fried wontons are a crowd favorite! Easy to find and easy to use, wonton wrappers are sturdy enough to hold a savory filling, but delicate enough to be served as an appetizer or a light side dish with a sauce.

Beverly Constantine shares two different ways to fold up wonton wrappers. One is an easier fold to achieve, but the other results in an almost scoop-like shape that is perfect for dipping! You can’t go wrong! She recommends frying them up in vegetable oil and heating it to 165° F for optimal crispiness. Beverly also shares how to reheat them in the air fryer to keep them nice and crisp.
