Asian Party BitesSeptember 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…
- Cook the burger in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until just beginning to brown.
- Stir in the onion soup mix along with the water chestnuts and bean sprouts. Cook until the sprouts are softened.
- Remove from heat and allow to rest until cool enough to handle.
- Open one can of crescent rolls. Cut each roll’s dough in half.
- Add about 1-2 tablespoons to the center of the dough and wrap dough around the filling to seal shut.
- Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
- If freezing, use wax paper or parchment paper between layers to prevent the bites from sticking together.
- 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.
