  2. Add the oil to a heavy-bottomed pot and heat over medium heat until it reaches 350 degrees F.

  3. Fill each wonton wrapper with 1 teaspoon of the chilled onion dip.

  4. Brush the edges of the wrappers with the beaten egg. then bring the opposite corners up and over the filling to meet in the center to create an “X” shape. Pinch the edges together to seal well.

  5. Working in batches, fry the wontons in the hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

  6. Transfer the wontons to a platter and serve immediately with the French onion dip and chips or pretzels for dipping.
