Fried Wonton Burger
Updated: Aug 25
This is a fun Asian twist on burger and it's also a twist on Ramen burgers where fried Ramen noodles are the buns. Here, fried wonton strips are the bun!
It is something good to do with extra pieces of egg roll or dumpling wrappers that you may have after shaping dumplings. Or if you just have extra egg roll or dumpling wrappers around, you can tear them into strips.
It's also Hamburger Day. See information at the bottom of the post.
I smashed the extra pieces of egg roll wrappers together like a nest and then fried them in some oil (medium/ medium-high) until they were golden brown -- similar to toasting a bread bun.
After a couple minutes, I flipped the egg roll wrapper "bun" and fried the other side. Crispy and yummy!
It's a fast and easy twist for a burger. I used ground pork for the burger, but if you prefer, you can use ground beef, ground chicken/turkey or a veggie burger.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
"NATIONAL HAMBURGER DAY
National Hamburger Day is observed each year on May 28. This day celebrates a summer-time grilling favorite and National Hamburger Day is part of National Hamburger Month.
Hamburger. Seasoned ground beef, grilled and placed between two slices of bread or a bun. Top with sauteed onions, peppers, pickles, sliced onions, or cheese. Add condiments such as ketchup, mustard or mayo. Any one of these combinations would create a modern American version a hamburger.
It is most likely that the hamburger sandwich first appeared in the 19th or early 20th centuries, but there is much controversy over its origin. Over the years, the hamburger has become a culinary icon in the United States.
The world’s largest hamburger was prepared on September 2, 2012, in Carlton, Minnesota by Black Bear Casino Resort and weighed in at 2,014 pounds."
