Combine the corned beef, the cream cheese, the Swiss, the sauerkraut,
the parsley & the garlic in a medium bowl.

Place the wonton wrappers {about 6 at a time} on a cutting board.
Portion 1 rounded teaspoon of the  filling in the center of each wrapper.
Moisten the edges w/ water & fold in half.
Press the edges real good w/ your fingers to seal.

do not over fill the wrappers
you don’t want a blow out while they’re frying

to seal
dip your fingers in a small bowl of water or use a pastry brush

Place the filled wontons on a parchment paper-lined half-sheet pan
& cover w/ plastic wrap.
Repeat w/ the remaining filling & the remaining wrappers.
Refrigerate up to a day ahead before frying.

Heat 1 1/2-inches of oil in a cast iron Dutch oven to 350 degrees.
Fry the wontons in batches about 1 1/2 minutes per side or until golden brown.

attach a candy thermometer to the side to monitor temperature

Remove them from the hot oil & place on a wire rack in a half-sheet pan.
Keep warm in a 200 degree oven up to 1 hour.

Garnish w/ fresh parsley leaves.

{testing notes}

 the filling

when sealing the wontons
try to get a snug fit around the filling
sometimes when they hit the oil
they will puff up much like a balloon

i filled these with about 1 1/4 teaspoons of the corned beef mixture
your yield may be slightly more or less depending on your groove

Reuben Wonton Appetizers tailgating recipes March Madness Rebecca Gordon Buttermilk Lipstick Southern Hostess How To Frythe frying

just be aware that you may experience a little extra sizzle
depending on how much water you use when sealing

if you hear a faint popping stand back a smidge to be on the safe side
remember hot oil & water don’t get along very well

a pair of long handled tongs work wonderful while frying
they will allow you to flip the wontons easily to brown the other side

i like to drop about 6 at a time per batch
be sure to keep that oil temp between 345 & 355 degrees during the frying process
allow the temperature to raise back up to 350 degrees in between batches

if the oil gets too hot
pour in a bit from the bottle on the countertop to bring it back down

    Just saw your segment featuring the corn beef & cabbage wontons, clever idea – looks yummy! Have you ever had a beef & cabbage casserole with white sauce & cheddar cheese topping – that’s excellent! Enjoy your website, have a great day! Martha
