  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp. butter, softened or melted, plus 1 tbsp. melted
  • 2 tbsp. scallions, minced
  • 1/2 cup potato chips, smashed
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Wonton wrappers (30-40 wrappers)
  • Gravy (for serving)


  • Combine all ingredients (except 1 tbsp. melted butter and wonton wrappers) in a bowl. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place a wonton wrapper on a flat surface and place 1 tbsp. of the potato mixture in the center. Wet the edges with water and place in the wonton press. If you don't have a wonton press, just seal the edges securely with your fingers. Place wonton on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Continue until all potato mixture has been used. Brush the tops with the melted tbsp. of butter. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the wontons are golden brown. Serve with homemade gravy.


  1. Use water to wet the edges of the wonton wrapper. This helps the dough stick so the wonton filling doesn't leak out.
  2. If you're sealing with your fingers, go over the edges with a fork to make sure they are sealed well.
  3. To freeze: before brushing with butter place them on a baking sheet directly in the freezer for 3 hours. Once frozen, place them in a freezer bag and store for up to 3 months. Brush them with butter and bake them straight from frozen, adding an additional 5-10 minutes to the cook time.
  4. To make ahead: make the wonton filling and stuff the wontons. Store on a flat baking sheet, covered, in the fridge overnight. Brush with butter and bake according to the recipe instructions.
