Lin's Chinese New Year Dumplings
1lb pork or turkey sausage (mushroom can be subbed if you don't eat meat; veggies and more spice can be added to taste)
1 clove garlic minced
1 & 1/2 teaspoon ginger minced
2 spoonfuls of brown sugar
1 package dumpling wrappers
small bowl of water
*So delicious, you may want to double the recipe!
Mix all the ingredients together and then drizzle some sesame oil in and mix a bit more. Drop small spoonfuls of mixture on middle of a dumpling wrapper. Wet finger and moisten edge of wrapper all the way around. Fold wrapper over and squeeze the wet edges together, forming a packet for the meat.
Bring a pot of water to boil then reduce heat so pot doesn't boil over. Drop dumplings into the hot water in groups; they'll float when they are done! Pull them out with a slotted spoon or ladle.
Serve en masse and enjoy with dipping sauce of your choice: soy, chili, hoisin etc.
Thanks to Lin and Family!
