    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 10
    10 oz. leftover turkey, shredded and roughly chopped
    ¾ c. leftover cooked Hy-Vee chicken stuffing
    1 (8-oz.) block Hy-Vee cream cheese, softened
    3 tbsp. green onion, thinly sliced; divided
    1 (14-oz.) can Hy-Vee jellied cranberry sauce
    2 tbsp. Hy-Vee original pancake syrup
    2 tbsp. packed Hy-Vee light brown sugar
    30 wonton wrappers
    Hy-Vee vegetable oil, for frying

    Things To Grab

    • Medium bowl
    • Small saucepan
    • 1-tablespoon measure
    • Large heavy saucepan or Dutch oven
    • Slotted spoon
    • Paper towels


    1. Mix turkey, stuffing, cream cheese and 2 tablespoons green onion in a medium bowl until combined; set aside.

    2. In a small saucepan, heat cranberry sauce, syrup and brown sugar over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until melted and thoroughly combined. Remove from heat; set aside.

    3. Using a 1-tablespoon measure, scoop turkey filling and drag the spoon up the side of the mixing bowl to create a level scoop. Place filling in the center of a wonton wrapper. Moisten edges of wrapper with water. Fold wrapper in half over filling to form a triangle. Press edges to seal. Repeat to fill remaining wrappers with turkey mixture.

    4. Pour 1 to 2 inches of oil into a large heavy saucepan or Dutch oven. Heat oil over medium-high heat to 375 degrees. Fry wontons, in several batches, for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown, turning halfway through. Drain on paper towels. Garnish with remaining green onion. Serve with cranberry dipping sauce.
