Jimmy Dean Thai Sausage Triangles

Yield 28 appetizers


  • 1 package Regular Flavor Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped roasted peanuts
  • 2 thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 teaspoons plus 1 1/2 cups Thai sweet red chili sauce, divided
  • 1 package (12 ounces) square wonton wrappers (50 wrappers)
  • Vegetable oil

How to Make It

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine uncooked sausage with cilantro, basil, garlic, ginger, pepper, peanuts, onions and 2 teaspoons of the chili sauce; stir well. Place a wrapper on the work surface with one corner pointing toward you. Place 1 level tablespoon of the sausage mixture on the top half of each wrapper, forming mixture into a triangle shape, leaving some dough exposed around the edges. Moisten edges of exposed dough with water; fold wrapper in half over filling to form a triangle. Press edges together to seal. Cover triangles with a towel to keep from drying out while preparing the rest. To cook: In a wok, Dutch oven or fryer, add oil to a depth of 3 inches; heat to 375° F. Fry 3 or 4 at a time for about 2 minutes, turning each after 1 minute; drain on paper towels. Serve with chili sauce.
