Fried  Wonton Recipe

Fried Wontons are crunchy, savory and a favorite menu item at Chinese restaurants. Did you know that they are super easy to make at home?! Seriously, this recipe is delicious and is a fun addition to any occasion.

Let’s get started!

Homemade Cream Cheese Wontons are irresistible and a total crowd pleaser.


In a large Dutch oven or a heavy-bottomed and high-sided skillet, add the oil and heat over medium to medium-high heat.


While the oil is heating, mix the cream cheese, sriracha, and green onions together in a medium mixing bowl. Place 1 ½ tablespoons of mixture in middle of a wonton wrapper.


Brush 2 edges of the wrapper with beaten eggs and fold over bringing 2 opposite corners together to seal in filling.


Bring the 2 other corners together to form what looks like a little envelope. Repeat with remaining filling and wonton wrappers.


When the oil is heated to 375 degrees F you are ready to fry. Working in batches, fry 6 or so wontons at a time, as to not over crowd the pan.


Use a spider strainer to remove the wontons from the oil and place them on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining wontons, working in batches.
