What's for dinner? Isn't that the eternal question in a busy family household. And add to this the rush and hustle of the holiday season and it's hard to plan a home-cooked meal the family will enjoy. It's important to me to create meals, especially around the holidays, that are made at home with healthful ingredients.

Minute Rice Holiday RecipesI came up with this recipe by combining crowd-pleasing ingredients into fun won ton wrappers. They are surprisingly fast to put together, thanks to Minute® Rice. Even if this is a last minute decision to prepare this dish, the rice is ready in 5 minutes! I love the nutty, rich flavor of brown rice, so I used that as the binder for the filling. It adds the perfect fluffiness.
