Asian Party Bites

September 1, 2012

This is a very quick and easy appetizer that my roommate taught me during graduate school. We really liked that you could prepare the small bite-sized snacks and freeze before baking. Then whenever you wanted a snack, you could pop a few in the oven. If friends came over unexpectedly, we could heat some up with little effort.

You will need:

  • 1 lb lean ground hamburger
  • 1 pkg Lipton onion soup mix
  • 1 small can of water chestnuts, drained and chopped
  • 1 small bag of bean sprouts from your grocer’s produce section
  • 4 cans of crescent rolls

Then you will…

  1. Cook the burger in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until just beginning to brown.
  2. Stir in the onion soup mix along with the water chestnuts and bean sprouts. Cook until the sprouts are softened.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to rest until cool enough to handle.
  4. Open one can of crescent rolls. Cut each roll’s dough in half.
  5. Add about 1-2 tablespoons to the center of the dough and wrap dough around the filling to seal shut.
  6. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  7. If freezing, use wax paper or parchment paper between layers to prevent the bites from sticking together.
  8. When ready to enjoy, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook until heated through and golden brown, roughly 10 minutes if fresh and 15 when frozen.
