Yield: 3 dozen


1 package round wonton wrappers, thawed

1 large sweet potato, finely diced

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon parsley flakes

¾ cup crumbled feta cheese

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1–2 cups oil, for frying


½ stick butter

¼ cup flour

1½ cups milk

2 cloves garlic, crushed

½ tablespoon parsley

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

½ tablespoon dry white wine


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Toss sweet potato with oil and spices and place on a 9×13 baking sheet.

Bake for 1 hour until the edges are browning and the potatoes are soft.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Add fetta and mozzarella cheese.

Fill wonton wrappers with 1 teaspoon of the sweet potato-cheese filling.

Seal the wrappers closed using a bit of water around the edges.

Heat the oil in a deep-frying pan.

Fry the wontons for 2 minutes per side until golden.

Remove from pan and drain excess oil on a paper towel-lined tray.

Serve warm or at room temperature with sauce.

To prepare sauce: In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat.

Add flour and mix until fully incorporated and turning golden.

Slowly add milk and spices and allow to thicken.

Then add the wine and simmer for an additional 3 minutes.

If the sauce appears too thick, add more milk until it’s at the desired consistency.

Note: The sauce will thicken as it cools. If reheating, add milk.
