I was looking for a new and different way to get rid of Thanksgiving leftovers when this caught my eye. Thought it was a bit strange but I figured why not give it a try. Surprisingly good! I even tried a variation of using leftover stuffing in place of the turkey. My only suggestion is I baked mine for 15-20 instead of frying them after tasting the first few fried ones and though they were greasy. Also try using the cranberry sauce as a dipping sauce or even gravy. Read More

A little light on flavor. Needed something to dip them in to be a lot more flavorful. Not bad overall but I would have to modify this recipe before ever making it again. Read More

These were actually better than I thought they would be. I added 5 oz. of cream cheese just because we are so used to making crab wonton that way. When I tasted the filling before they were cooked I wasn't sure if people would like them. However after they were fried they were really good. I have tried baking and frying wonton and the taste is so much better if you take the time to fry. It's a big difference. The easiest way is to put about 1/4 inch of oil in a skillet and let them fry for a minute on each side. Read More

Very good and totally weird which is the kinda thing my friends like. I served it with extra cranberry sauce to dip in. I also had some goat cheese out and people seemed to like to pair the two. Read More

These sounded strange but were actually really good. I made a second batch different however. I mixed shredded turkey cream cheese mayo homemade cranberry sauce and a pinch of salt pepper and fresh garlic together and they were even better then the original. Either way they are a must try for something unique. Read More

We made these last year for a party we had with friends the Friday after Thanksgiving. It was SO easy to make and we did not stray from the recipe. We used leftover turkey to make Turkey Wontons and we used the Cranberry Salsa recipe found on this site (the one with Grand Marnier) as the dipping sauce. We ran out of both and ended up going to the store to make more! Everyone left with the recipe... Best Friday Thanksgiving ever! Read More

I was expecting these to be outstanding and they were OK. I made them the Sunday after thanksgiving while the guys were watching football. Don't get me wrong they got eaten but I didn't get any rave reviews on them. I used the directed recipe and I made my own with turkey almonds salt n pepper and a little bit of sour cream. I also put them all out with cranberry sauce and gravy. I definately do love the idea behind it all tho. I think I'm gonna take the ideas of it and just replace it with different fillings (like a walnut/brownsugar filling). THanks for the idea tho!!!! Read More

This is a great way to get rid of Thanksgiving leftovers. I thought it was kinda strange but it was very good! I did change a little I used turkey stuffing and dipped into cranberry sauce. My only suggestion is to bake them. After frying them my house smelt funny and they were a little greasy. But I will use this the day after every Thanksgiving. Maybe I will dip in gravy. Read More
