Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the lunchmeat, water chestnuts, green onions, parsley, hard-cooked eggs, pepper, and oyster sauce. Set aside.
  2. On a clean flat surface, such as a cutting board, lay out 4 to 6 wonton skins at a time. Place a tablespoon of the meat mixture into the center of each one. Keep a small bowl of water next to the work area to dip fingers in. Use wet fingers to moisten the corners of each wrapper. Quickly pinch all 4 corners together to seal in the filling. If it doesn't hold, use more water. Keep filled wontons covered with plastic wrap to prevent drying while the others are made.
  3. Heat one inch of oil in a deep heavy skillet over medium-high heat, or heat recommended amount of oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Fry wontons for a few minutes on each side, or until golden. Remove to paper towels to absorb excess grease. Enjoy the grinds!

These won tons are great! The only problem I found was for first time won ton makers (like myself) it would have been VERY helpful to know that you cannot stack the precooked won tons together. I had no idea that when I was ready to cook them I would have a HUGE ball of sticky dough that could not be pulled apart! Out of the 100 I had made I had to throw out quite a big pile of useless goo. Please make sure when you make this recipe to lay your won tons side by side and keep covered so they don't dry out. Also, the recipe makes 10 servings - I tripled it and made about 150 won tons for a party.

Maybe my expectations were a little too high on this recipe. I thought it was good, but I don't know if I'll make it again. Maybe I would have enjoyed them more if I didn't know that Spam was in them. My roommate seemed to really like them a lot.

Instead of frying the wontons, which would have taken forever. . .I formed and baked them in mini muffin tins. Then I was able to place them in a ziploc bag. Finally, at the party we just filled up the won ton cups with the filling I stored in a bowl and nuked them for about a minute. Delicious!!

I was skeptical after reading the ingredients, but decided to trust the reviewers! These were great. Easy to make. Brought them to a small gathering for a "test run". They were a hit - everybody liked them (of course I didn't tell them the ingredients until after they tried them). I really minced/ground up the filling for a nice even consistency (I put the cubed spam & water chestnuts in my cuisinart) & added an extra Tbsp of the oyster sauce b/c mixture seemed a little dry. Also, I used SCRAMBLED eggs instead of hard boiled (it was quicker). I used regular spam & did NOT find it to be too salty. I made the wontons ahead of time, covered w/ plastic wrap and kept in the fridge for a couple of hours. Brought them to my friends' and fried them up there (it just takes a few minutes) This made about 50 DELICIOUS wontons. Served these with a bottled sweet & sour sauce for dipping- although they were also good without the sauce. Will definitely make a double batch for an upcoming luau. Thanks for the recipe.

These wonton were great. I made them for a Christmas party for work that had Hawaiian theme and they may of lasted 5 mins. Even at home, my family couldn't leave them alone. I deep fried mine in a deep fryer and they came out nice and crispy. I did change the ingredients around a bit, instead of egg I used mango (canned or fresh works great) and I used about an 8 oz can of crushed pineapple as well. Also, if you have problems working with the wonton skins use egg roll skins instead. They are much larger and easier to stuff and handle. Awesome recipe once again. Thanks a million.

Super easy and Onolicious! Only thing though, Use less sodium spam. Mine was kinda salty

I LOVED this, but my daughter and hubby were less than thrilled, I won't put the oyster sauce in next time, and use sweet and sour sauce or pineapple juice instead.

Okay, the filling makes WAY more than what you could possibly stuff in 14 oz. of won ton wrappers(I had at least half leftover) but it was really good and I highly recommend. This was only the second time I had tasted SPAM and the first time I had actually bought it. These were really good with some dipping sauce. I watched a video on Youtube for fancy folding but other than that, I stuck to the recipe.
