I didn't have any water chestnuts, so I didn't use any. I also added some chopped garlic. It was a big hit! Definitely will make again!

I hate to be the first to write a low review, but I personally didn't like, I will continue to search for better tasting fillings.

This is a fantastic recipe. It yields quite a bit so I gave some to my neighbors -they devoured them before they even walked in the house. The only thing that I will change for next time would be to either completely omit the water chestnuts or cut them into much smaller pieces. Other than that I wouldn't change anything.

My family loved these. I made for super bowl. I did use water on finger to moisten the edges help keep them closed when folding them before deep frying. Would make these again. Used my mom's sweet n sour sauce for dipping. Great!!!(the only thing I would do different next time is chop my water chestnuts much smaller with my chopper)

I've never fried anything before. Not because I'm all healthy, just because hot grease scares me. Oh heavens, am I glad I jumped it and made these. They are delish and really easy to make. I happened to get hot pork sausage by mistake and what a fantastic mistake it turned out to be. Thank you!!

The filling tastes superb! The proportions are spot-on, even when I used shredded chicken instead of pork. I dont like the idea of frying them. I also must have used the wrong kind of wrapper (my selection is very limited here) and may go with a lumpia wrapper next time.
