  2. Slowly cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 45 minutes.

  3. Carefully pour in the white wine and let evaporate to cook out the alcohol, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer half of the cooked onions to a medium bowl and set aside.

  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.

  7. Enjoy!
