 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    egg -- lightly beaten
    3      tablespoons   seasoned bread crumbs
    2      tablespoons   minced green or red pepper
    2      tablespoons   minced green onion
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/8  teaspoon      garlic powder
      1/2  pound         lean ground beef
    1      tablespoon    olive oil
    1      tablespoon    butter
    1      cup           barbecue sauce
   30                    won ton wrappers
    1                    egg white -- lightly beaten or
    1      tablespoon    flour and 2 tablespoons cold water
 
 Combine egg, bread crumbs, minced vegetables, and seasonings in a mixing bowl.
 Add ground beef and mix thoroughly.  Form into 3/4-inch balls.  Heat oil and
 butter in a medium fry pan.  Add meatballs; shake pan and turn meatballs to
 brown on all sides and cook through, about 5 minutes.  Cool meatballs.  This
 may be done ahead of time and meatballs refrigerated until needed.  Makes 30.
 Roll meatballs in barbecue sauce.  Place in center of won ton wrapper.  Bring
 corner over meatball.  Brush remaining corners with lightly beaten egg white
 or a mixture of 1 tablespoon flour and 2 tablespoons cold water.  Wrap
 meatball by bringing corners up and sealing them to each other so it resembles
 a pinwheel.  Continue until all meatballs are wrapped.  Deep fry 3 or 4
 wrapped meatballs at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, turning to brown all sides.
 Drain on paper towels.  Makes 30.  Serve with sour cream, chives, and dill for
 a Swedish taste.
