Rated 5.0 based on 5 customer reviews


  • ½ cup shredded leftover turkey
  • ⅓ cup leftover gravy
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley, plus more for garnish
  • 20 wonton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil, or as needed
  • ½ cup leftover cranberry sauce


  1. Mix turkey, gravy, and parsley together in a bowl.
  2. Lay 4 wonton wrappers on a clean, flat surface. Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel. Place 1 heaping teaspoon of the turkey mixture in the center of each wrapper. Brush water along the edges of each wrapper. Fold two opposing corners together to form a filled triangle. Press along the edges to seal completely. Wet two other corners slightly and pinch together. Repeat dumpling-filling process with remaining filling and wrappers.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Working in batches, fry wontons in a single layer in the hot oil until golden brown, about 1 minutes.
  5. Pour 2 tablespoons water into the skillet and cover immediately with a lid. Steam dumplings for 1 minute; transfer to a plate.
  6. Serve wontons with cranberry sauce and garnish with parsley.
Mealthy tip:

For a vegetarian version, use leftover stuffing or mashed potatoes as the filling instead of the turkey!

These turkey and gravy dumplings are amazing! I didn't have any cranberry sauce left over so I just dipped them in extra gravy. Delicious!

We tried this and it was so delicious! The wonton wrappers are great for the leftover turkey and gravy. I bet you could also use egg roll wrappers?! The cranberry sauce was so perfect for dipping!

I tried this and it was very good. Such a reative way to use Thanksgiving leftovers. I plan to make this again in the future. I bet it would also taste good in the form of an egg roll!

We did egg rolls instead of wonton wrappers (stole the idea from the comment above). It worked great, glad I tried it!

Delicious! Didn't use the cranberry sauce, I actually just used gravy for dipping. A little labor intensive wrapping the wontons, but it's so worth it.
