Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Separate 1 egg white into a small bowl; mix in water. Reserve egg yolk.

  • Combine the remaining 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk, pork, shiitake mushrooms, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a bowl. Mix by hand until just combined. Add cornstarch and onion powder; mix filling evenly.

  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

  • Separate and place wonton wrappers onto your work surface. Place 1 rounded dollop of the filling onto the center of a wrapper. Dampen edges lightly with egg white mixture. Fold one corner over the filling onto the opposite corner to form a triangle; press to seal. Dampen edges again and gather in corners to create a little purse-like pouch. Place wonton on the lined baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers.

  • Bring chicken broth to a boil in a large pot. Drop in wontons carefully; cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
