Light and Healthy recipe


  • 1 tsp + 2 Tbsp olive oil (divided use)
  • 1/4 c finely diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 c finely diced shallot
  • 1/2 jalapeño finely minced
  • 3 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg(s), scrambled
  • 1/3 c frozen corn, thawed
  • 1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese
  • kosher salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 24 wonton wrappers


  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Sauté red bell pepper, shallot, and jalapeño, stirring occasionally until softened, about 5 minutes. Let cool.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine scrambled eggs, sautéed vegetables, corn, and shredded cheese. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Set aside a small bowl of water to help seal wontons. Working one at a time, add 1 small spoonful of southwest omelette mixture to the center of each wonton wrapper. Be careful not to overfill or it will be very difficult to seal wontons. Moisten the perimeter of each wonton. Fold the wonton in half and seal tightly all around. Make sure there are no air pockets or holes in the wonton. Place sealed wontons under a moistened paper towel to keep them from drying out.
  4. When all wontons are folded and sealed, heat reamining oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add wontons to pan and cook approximately 2-3 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally.
  5. Add 2 tablespoons of water to skillet and quickly cover with lid. Be careful as oil will splatter. Cook for 2 minutes, shaking occasionally. Remove lid and cook until water evaporates and dumplings are cooked through.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's eggs aren't just good for sunny-side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
