chestnuts, green onions, half of the beaten eggs and all

Place won ton squares on working surface so corners face
up, down, left and right. Place 1 teaspoon filling
in the center of each skin. Dip a little of the beaten
egg onto the bottom corner, bring top corner to meet
bottom corner. Press to seal. Moisten left
corner and bring right corner to meet it. Press to
seal. [This should give you a little bundle that
looks kind of like a nurses hat. S.C.]
Heat 4 cups oil in wok. Fry wrapped won ton until
golden (about 2 minutes). Turn over once.
Drain and serve hot.
Deep fry won ton, cool and freeze. To reheat,
preheat oven to 350F.
Place frozen won ton onto cookie sheets and heat for 12
to 15 minutes.
You may substitute ground turkey for meat in won ton
However since turkey is drier and more bland than pork,
add a few more water chestnuts and 1/4 tsp. monosodium
glutamate to enhance flavor and texture.
