Ingredient Checklist
Dipping Sauce:


Instructions Checklist
  • Place butternut squash cut-side down in a shallow dish; cover with plastic wrap.

  • Microwave squash until flesh is easily pierced with a fork, about 12 minutes. Cool until easily handled, about 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Scoop squash flesh into a large bowl, discarding skin. Mix brown sugar and 2 tablespoons soy sauce into the squash. Stir in scallions and ginger.

  • Spoon 1 tablespoon squash mixture into the center of a wonton wrapper. Moisten edges with water and fold into a triangle. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers. Arrange filled potstickers on a baking sheet.

  • Freeze potstickers until almost solid, about 15 minutes.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add a layer of potstickers; cook, shaking skillet occasionally, until bottoms are golden, about 2 minutes. Flip and add 1/2 cup water. Cover and let steam until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish. Repeat with remaining oil and potstickers.

  • Mix 1/2 cup soy sauce, water, and sesame seeds together in a small bowl to make dipping sauce. Serve alongside potstickers.

These were yummy... nice change from usual. I made the potstickers pre the recipe but used leftover butternut squash so it was pretty fast. If you forget them in the freezer like I did. just let them sit out for 15 minutes of so and then they will be ready to cook. The only change I would make with these is due to the texture of the filling.. it's very soft and I would like some firmness in there too. I added some diced ham to a few of these and that is what it needed for my taste. This is a great way to use up Thanksgiving or Christmas leftovers Read More
