Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Beat the egg white and water together in a small bowl; set aside. Lightly mix the ground beef, sausage, 1 tablespoon sweet chile sauce, five-spice powder, garlic powder, green onion, and salt and pepper. Place about 1 teaspoonful of the meat mixture onto a wonton wrapper with one corner facing you. Fold in the left and right corners of the wrapper to slightly overlap the filling, then tightly roll the lower corner up to create a pocket around the filling. Continue rolling until just the tip of the remaining corner is visible; brush the corner with the egg white mixture to seal.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Fry the egg rolls in the hot oil in batches until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Serve with 1/2 cup of sweet chili sauce.

Cook's Note

Amount varies, I usually get about a pack and a half of the wonton wrappers filled with mixture but it freezes well if you only want to do one package. Also, prep time varies depending on how fast you can wrap the wontons.

Editor's Note

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

I have been making these for years and they have always been the hit at our Christmas parties. I just use pork in mine and serve them with a sweet and sour sauce. Read More

Do not follow these instructions, make sure you cook the meat first or you will end up with raw meat and burned wontons. Even with the oil turned down, still having the same problem. Cook the meat first! Other wise they taste great. Read More

Time consuming but not difficult. I'm not sure if Italian Sausage is the way to guy and I think I might prefer my wontons boiled for soup instead of fried but these make a lot of appetizers if that is what someone is looking for. Read More

These were a bit labor intensive but certainly worth the end result. After trying them I think next time I will cut back on the five spice just a tiny bit. The cinnamon flavor was overwhelming in the sense we are used to more savory wontons then sweet. I was also worried the beef mixture would be raw but it cooks up just fine and there is no excess grease. Overall a real winner with my gang! Read More
