Won Tons

Scripture to Live By:  
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born.  “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written:
       But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,  are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
       for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.

Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared.  He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”
After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.  When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 
Matthew 2:1-11

Recipe Post:
As we look forward to the Christmas and New Year celebration and having people in our homes or going to parties, we start planning our menus, as to what we will make or take to these special occasions.  One of the recipes that I have found to be a real pleaser at any party, is this Won Ton recipe.  So if you are looking for something tasty to serve as appetizer or finger food this is a winner. I like to make more than one recipe so I can freeze one recipe of  them and have them on hand to use whenever the occasion arrives.    They can easily be taken out of the freezer, heated and served on the spare of the moment.
Here is what you will need to make them:

1 package of Won Ton Wrappers
1 pound of ground beef, pork, turkey or chicken
4 cups of shredded cabbage 
(I buy coleslaw mix already shredded)
1 teaspoon of minced garlic 
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1  teaspoon sugar
2 Tablespoons of soy sauce

 Measure out all ingredients and put in large bowl and mix together.

 You can either deep fry the Won Tons or, if you like to curb your fat intake, as I do, you can spay an electric skillet with cooking spray and fry them in an electric skillet.

Separate the Won Ton Wrappers and make a row of them.  By doing this first, you will not have to stop and separate wrappers while making them. (See below)

Take a teaspoon full of mixture and place it in the center of the wrapper.

 Then fold one side over the meat.  Wet your finger and bring the other side over as seen in the pictures above.  Wet it and then bring the bottom up and secure it.  Bring the top down.

Fill the pan, cover and cook for five to seven minutes on one side at 325 degrees and then turn them over and cook another five to seven minutes on that side.  They should be golden brown.  

Remove from electric skillet and serve on serving dish with Sweet and Sour sauce.

Bet you can't eat just one!

These are great anytime, but I am sure you will get a lot of compliments on them,
 if you serve them at your next holiday party. 

Best wishes to you this Christmas.
