Banana won tons. I just made up the name for the post title’s sake and I’m not sure how much I like it. If you can think of a better name for these things, be my guest.
My momma made these up one day and they’ve been hanging around the family ever since.
You only need three ingredients:
OK, so you also need a little bit of cooking oil and water. If you don’t have those things, you seriously need to go grocery shopping. And please move to a location where water is readily available to you so you don’t die.
…and spoon (or fork) some of the banana mixture onto it. Just use the fork you used to mash up the bananas, OK? There’s no need to dirty a spoon too. Unless you really like washing spoons. Then by all means, use as many spoons as you want.
Now we’re going to roll it up like a little tiny egg roll. Or burrito. Whichever one you relate to more.
…then roll it up the rest of the way. Remember that little container of water? Dip a finger into it and dab some water onto the last (top) corner before you roll it up completely. This seals it up really nicely.
As for me, I ran out of banana filling. If this happens to you, make sure you store the rest of the wrappers in an airtight container. If you don’t, I promise you, you will have stale won ton wrappers the next day. These wrappers are a great thing to have around. You can fill them with anything you have left over, fry them, and people will think you’ve made something fancy.
They’re finished when both sides are golden brown. Place the finished rolls on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up the excess oil. We just barely ran out of paper towels so I used a tea towel instead.
Finish cooking the rest of the rolls.
Make sure you let them cool for a few minutes, especially if you have a husband like mine who always forgets to blow on things before he puts them in his mouth. But also try to eat them soon because they start losing their crispiness after a while.
