The other day I picked up a pack of gyoza wrappers, I'm not sure why, gyoza is one of the very few things that Ebi-kun doesn't like, due to the texture, so it is something I never make. So, I posted the question of what to do with them on a FB group (Japan Friendly Recipes) and got back loads of suggestions, the first to try were mini lasagna.
I didn't have any minced meat so I cooked some chicken with onions then added tinned tomatoes and whizzed it up into a baby food type of mush. Then I set Ebi-kun to work.
1. Grease the muffin tin, I used a bit of olive oil. Pop a gyoza wrapper in each one.
2. Add a dollop of meat sauce and a dollop of ricotta (if you want to make your own, here is my recipe)
3. Add another wrapper to the top and another dollop of meat sauce. Finish with some cheese on top - this is when I discovered the only cheese I had left was 'plastic' cheese squares!
Stick in the oven for 20mins at 200c or until browned.
And they were delicious, I will definitely be making these again and I think they will probably become a go-to recipe for pot luck parties since they are easy to eat with your hands. I also think the same method would work well with a sweet filling, apple maybe..hmmmm
So, do you have any gyoza wrapper recipes to share? A long shot, I know!
