Pineapple-Cream Cheese Wontons

These pineapple-cream cheese wontons are inspired by the mouthwatering appetizer at RA Sushi.


One (1) 20oz can of crushed pineapple -- I only used about 1/4 of this can, so you can buy a smaller one.
4oz of cream cheese
Two (2) bulbs of green onion, chopped
1/2 package of wonton wraps (about 25 wraps)-- The amount you use depends on how many you want to make
Cooking oil -- I used Canola


In mixing bowl, spoon in pineapple, green onion and cream cheese. Mix together.
Take out wonton wraps and spoon about approx. one teaspoon of cream cheese mixture into wrap.
Fold wrap into one half-triangle. Ensure there is no air in the pocket and all sides are sealed.
Dip one end of triangle into egg glaze and connect with other corner and "glue" them together.
Heat oil in pan and drop wontons in until fried. -- In my case, I fried one side & flipped.
Let cool and devour.

Wrapping wontons isn't that difficult, but it was intimidating to me at first. For some special help, check out this site.
