Whether you’re looking to enjoy now or freeze for later, dumplings are a delicious option to throw in your repertoire. Short on time, or fighting off a craving? Pull them out of the freezer – your wallet will thank you! They also make a unique addition to a freezer party you may be planning.
They may seem intimidating but worry not – the process is way easier than imagined. The best part being after you’ve mastered the technique, experimenting with fillings leads to endless exciting combinations. You can’t go wrong with a more traditional chicken and cabbage, but also think bacon cheeseburger, french onion and beyond.
To start, for the recipes below you’ll need 40 wheat or rice-based dumpling wrappers. Beyond the required ingredients be sure to keep a bowl of water nearby to ensure moisture holds the filling together. For tools, use your hands to shape, and a fork to seal if needed.
If saving for later, freeze after prep and follow the tips for cooking when ready to eat!
