Ground Turkey Pot Stickers are the perfect appetizer and highly addictive! This recipe is very easy to make!
You may also see these referred to as Pan-fried dumplings potstickers or gyoza in Japanese. They’re basically the same.
GROUND TURKEY POT STICKERS
They’re full of ground turkey so they’ll be better for you. They are perfectly steamed with crispy bottoms, a textural dream.
My potstickers are not wrapped perfectly. You can practice and get it right, or use a potsticker maker. Honestly, I don’t care if they look perfect, they don’t last long enough here to look at for very long. I simply wet the edge with water and crimp them together to hold in the filling.
Remember to use a non-stick pan, so potstickers will not stick to the pan and have a nice and crunchy bottom.
To test the filling mixture before you wrap and cook, take a small amount of it and add it to the frying pan. It doesn’t have to be pretty, cook it through, cool, and taste it. Adjust with more seasonings if necessary. Proceed with wrapping and cooking.
TO COOK GROUND TURKEY POT STICKERS
If you have a steamer, line the bottom of the steamer with parchment paper. This will keep the potstickers from sticking. Place the folded dumplings on the paper over boiling water. Steam for 7 to 8 minutes until cooked through.
