What’s Up, Hungry People

We’ve been traversing the galaxy for Star Wars Week here on the blog, stopping for anything from kibi strips and Ronto wraps to blue milk and polystarch portion bread on our long journey through hyperspace. We’re almost to our final destination, but it’s time for a quick pit stop for a spaceship tune-up.

When it comes to iconic Star Wars objects, most people first think of lightsabers—closely followed by TIE Fighters and X-Wings. You know you grew up a Star Wars fan if you grew up saying “Red Two, standing by” while pretending to fly your imaginary starfighter.

This simple Star Wars snack really only needs three ingredients (plus water, and your favorite dip or condiments!): TIE Fighter Wontons. The trick is to cut two wrappers to resemble an A-Wing style starfighter while sandwiching a small cut of sausage in the middle to be the cockpit.

It’s deceivingly easy to do—just cut, assemble, and crisp! Even a Stormtrooper could figure it out, and we all know how difficult it is for them to do… well, anything.

Whether you’re gearing up for a movie marathon or just want a fun snack, these themed treats are perfect. Follow along and soon you’ll be enjoying your very own fleet of tasty starfighters, ready to battle hunger at light speed. Let’s get these TIE fighters into formation and into the oven!

Here’s What You Need

  • Egg roll wrappers: Used as the base to create the starfighter shape.
  • Smoked sausages: Act as the cockpit, providing a meaty center.
  • Water: Helps to seal the edges of the wrappers together.
  • Cooking oil spray: Ensures the wrappers crisp up nicely in the oven.
  • Mustard or your favorite condiment: For decorating, adding flavor accents to the finished chips.

Let’s Cook

Alright, Hungry People, it’s time to transform these ordinary ingredients into something extraordinary. Grab your egg roll wrappers and a sharp knife because precision is key here. We’re crafting our own fleet of A-Wing starfighters. Stack a few wrappers at a time for consistency and start from the top right corner, slicing at a 45° angle down to about two-thirds of the way down. Flip those cut pieces over to the left side and mirror that cut. For the wings, you’ll want a slightly steeper angle to really make them pop.

Assembling the Squadron

Now, take a strip of that tasty smoked sausage and place it right in the center of one cut wrapper—this is your TIE fighter’s cockpit. Dampen the edges of the wrapper lightly with water. This acts like glue when you lay the second wrapper on top. Align it perfectly and press around the edges to seal the deal. You want that sausage snug as a bug in a rug (or a pilot in a TIE fighter, if you will).

Ready for Takeoff

Preheat your oven to 375°F and let’s get these fighters ready to fly. Spray a baking sheet with some cooking oil to prevent any sticky situations. Arrange your assembled TIE fighters neatly on the sheet, then give them a light misting with the oil spray too. This will help them crisp up to perfection.

Launch Sequence

Pop them into the oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes, but keep your eyes peeled—these fighters can go from perfectly golden to scorched earth in a flash. Once they’re crisped to your liking, pull them out.

Finishing Touches

Before you serve, grab your mustard or favorite condiment and add some fighting stripes to those wings. It’s all in the details, after all. Serve them up with your dip of choice and watch them disappear faster than a ship making the jump to hyperspace.

Baking Tips for Perfect TIE Fighter Wonton Chips

  • Cutting the Wrappers: When cutting your egg roll wrappers into the A-Wing shape, use a sharp knife or a pair of kitchen scissors for precision. You might want to draw a template on parchment paper first to guide your cuts, ensuring uniformity among your fleet of TIE Fighters.
  • Sealing the Edges Properly: After placing the sausage on the wrapper, dampen the edges of the wrapper with water using your fingertips. This step is crucial as it helps to seal the top and bottom wrappers together, preventing them from separating during baking.
  • Preventing Sogginess: Be conservative with the cooking oil spray. A light spritz is enough to help the wontons crisp without making them soggy. Focus on spraying the edges and a bit on the top but avoid drenching them.
  • Monitoring Baking Time Closely: Keep a close eye on the oven as the wontons can go from perfectly golden to burnt very quickly. Depending on your oven, the cooking time might be slightly less or more, so adjust accordingly.
  • Decorating Your TIE Fighters: When applying mustard or any other condiment for decoration, if the squeeze bottle is too messy, use a small piping bag or a sandwich bag with a tiny corner cut off for precision. This makes it easier to control the amount and ensures your designs are neat.

Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 10 egg roll wrappers
  • 4 smoked sausages cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 4 tablespoons water for sealing edges
  • cooking oil spray for crisping wrappers
  • mustard or your favorite condiment, for decorating edges

Instructions
 

  • Use a sharp knife to cut the egg roll wrappers into A-Wing shapes. It’s easiest to match the sides when the wrappers are cut in stacks. Starting with the top right corner, cut in about a 45° angle to about 2/3 down the side of the wrapper. To make the sides match, flip the removed pieces over onto the left side and repeat the cut. Do the same cut at a slightly steeper angle for the longer ends, leaving the middle section uncut so that it can wrap around the sausage.
  • Take two cut wrappers, place a piece of sausage on the center, and use your fingers to wet the inside edges of the wrapper. Wet the sausage as well. Then place the second wonton wrapper on top and align it to the one on the bottom. Press the edges in around the sausage so it is tightly wrapped between the two pieces. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and sausages.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a baking sheet with the cooking spray. Carefully transfer the wrapped sausages to the baking sheet and then spritz everything on the tray lightly with the cooking oil—particularly be sure to spray the sausages in the center so that they adhere to the wrappers as they heat up.
  • Bake the sausage wontons for 8-10 minutes or until the wrappers are golden. Keep a close eye on them as they will burn quickly.
  • Just prior to serving, use squeeze mustard or your favorite squeezable condiment to decorate the 'wings' with fighting stripes. Serve with your favorite sauce for dipping. Enjoy!
