2 Turkey Wonton Recipes - Delightful Asian Solutions to Turkey Leftovers

> > Turkey Wonton Recipes

There are many leftover turkey recipes on the Internet. Sandwiches, salads, wraps, soups and more. Let me add 2 turkey wonton recipes.

Both recipes call for the wontons to be boiled. The first one is served in a light broth while the second one is served in a sauce made with fish sauce, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

What could be nicer than a couple of turkey wontons floating in a steamy hot soup to counter-act the effects of over-eating during Thanksgiving. But if you are craving for a crispy snack, you can deep fry them. Choose the samosa wrapping style if you are deep frying the wontons. 

Cooked turkey meat may be too dry so it may be necessary to add some sort of liquid to mix and blend the ingredients together. If you have some leftover gravy, use that but use it sparingly. Just enough to bind the ingredients together.

Both recipes call for 1 packet of wonton wrappers. Or if you are up to it, you can make the wrappers from scratch.
