Turkey and Mashed Potato Wontons and Gravy Sauce

After a couple of days you get tired of turkey and mashed potato leftovers. What’s a guy to do? I decided to make Wontons! You probably already have everything you need, leftover turkey, some leftover mashed potatoes, some green onion, and some leftover gravy.

I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t made a lot of wontons. Before tonight, I haven’t made one wonton! LOL! But I was determined to make something new with my turkey and mashed potato leftovers. I looked for various recipes and didn’t see anything I liked. So, I made up my own recipe.

I had some wonton recipes and all the leftovers from Thanksgiving, so I made Turkey and Mashed Potato Wontons!

If you want to try something new with your leftovers, make Wontons!

Turkey and Mashed Potato Wontons and Gravy Sauce


  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 lb leftover turkey, chopped finely
  • 2-3 tbsp green onion, finely chopped
  • Wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 quarts peanut oil or any oil for frying



Preheat oil in a large skillet to 350 degrees


Mix the mashed potatoes, chopped turkey, and green onion in a mixing bowl


Take about 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of the mashed potato and turkey mixture and put it on the wonton wrapper. You want to be able to fold over the wrapper without the filling spilling out


Put a fine layer of the egg on the wonton wrapper to seal it shut


Fold over the wrapper, one corner to the other and seal it shut with your fingers


Assemble at least three or four wontons before putting in the oil


Gently place the assembled wontons in the preheated oil and fry until golden brown


About halfway through the cooking process, flip the wontons


Once fully cooked, transfer to a platter with a paper towel or cooling rack


Continue cooking until the mixture is gone


Heat the gravy in a bowl or ramekin for dipping
