These go with the Chow mein I posted and I also use this filling to make won ton mein soup except that instead of frying the won tons I boil them for 3 minutes and then add to the soup when the soup is ready to go on the table. I use like around 3 -4 won tons per bowl of soup.

I freeze them also but making sure i wrap them in little bundles in plastic wrap so they don't stick together.
