Hot Dog Wontons

  • Yield: 30 1x


  • 3 Oscar Meyer hot dogs, chopped
  • 1 large vidalia onion, cut in half and sliced thinly
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 2 T. butter
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. sugar
  • 3/4 c. grated gouda cheese

  1. Start by caramelizing the onions. Add the butter and oil to a large skillet over low heat and add the sliced onions.
  2. Cook over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring often, until the onions are dark brown and sweet.
  3. Set aside to cool.
  4. Chop the hot dogs into a small dice and add to a medium bowl.
  5. Add the grated cheese and the cooled onions and stir to combine.
  6. Line up a few wonton wrappers and place a heaping teaspoon of filling in the center.
  7. Wet the edges of the wonton wrapper with water and fold over into a triangle, sealing the edges with your fingers.
  8. Repeat with about 30 wonton wrappers until the filling is gone.
  9. Heat your oil to 375 degrees.
  10. Add a few wontons at a time to the hot oil and fry for 1 1/2 minutes until golden brown, turning them over halfway through cooking.
  11. Set on a paper towel lined plate to drain and repeat with remaining wontons.
